Acceptance of Liebster Award!

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

As per Rowen Black‘s nomination (THANK YOU!!!!! I am very honored to have been nominated!), here are the guidelines for accepting and passing on a Liebster Award:

  1. Post the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to his/her blog.
  3. Write 5 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 5 bloggers (they should have less than 300 followers).
  5. Answer 5 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 5 questions.

Five Random facts about innerdragon:

  1. Innerdragon can go from happy to anxious in a split second.
  2. Innerdragon is a phonetic speller and relies heavily on spell check.
  3. Innerdragon wants to go camping.
  4. Innerdragon likes feeling like part of a community.
  5. Innerdragon loves animals.

My Answer to guildedinblack’s Questions:

  1. What is your favorite thing to have on when you write/draw? This is strange, but I focus best if my hair is pulled back in a pony-tail. Otherwise, I like cozy PJs or something soft.
  2. What is your favorite memory? I have many favorite memories but I did draw a comic from one of my favorites that I turn to whenever I’m down — a certain person telling me whole-heartedly that they loved me.
  3. Where would you go if you could pick the perfect inspirational place? Aside from any random place untouched by humans, I would have to say I’d love to see the enormous salt flat in Bolivia.
  4. What would you say to a person who writes, is good at it, and never shares? I know somebody like this and I just hope that before he dies, he allows me to somehow organize and publish his writings.
  5. Do you love with your whole heart? I have trouble fully committing to any humans. There are just a handful out there I love with no walls. But there are two animals out there whom I love with all of my heart. All. One is a horse and one is a dog. A cat came close.

Okay, so I have to come up with five questions for my nominees:

  1. What is your favorite subject/s to take pictures of?
  2. If money wasn’t the issue, what sort of things, if any, would you use to decorate your walls?
  3. Would you visit Antarctica if the trip was all-expenses-paid and you somehow wouldn’t lose your job/schooling?
  4. Are there any particular mountains in the world that you’re interested in visiting (or perhaps have already visited)?
  5. Do you focus better when writing indoors or outdoors?

Now the hard part!!! Picking only 5 nominees!!!

Okay! So as far as I understand it, to “accept” this award, you have to thank the person who nominated you (a zillion thanks to gentlekindness). Then you answer the questions I’ve written for you, and then pass along your own set of questions to your own nominees. It took me hours to figure out who to nominate! It is very hard to keep it down to these few people. And I’m still not sure if I’ve gotten females on here or what — some blogs are pretty ambiguous. 🙂 So I mean no offense if I’ve nominated you for this and you’re not actually female. 😉

I think you’re supposed to choose 5-11 questions to ask your nominees. And you’re supposed to choose 5-11 nominees to pass this award on to.

Acceptance of The Sisterhood of the Bloggers Award – Answering questions

gentlekindness nominated me for this! So I will do my best to fill it out and pass it along to some of you!

1. Name someone famous (past or present) in your country that you admire. Tell us what you admire about them. John Lyons. His videos and books were very accessible to me and made so much sense. They helped me a lot with my pony years ago. / But I’d also put Cesar Millan up here. He’s a favorite of mine.

2. Name someone famous from another country that you admire. Tell us why you admire them. I’ll put Clinton Anderson here. I thought Julie Goodnight and Monty Roberts were both in different countries, but their websites currently read USA. Weird. Anyway, I’m sure Clinton Anderson’s stuff is also accessible. I believe I’ve read some of his articles in magazines and appreciated them.

3. If you were to get a job that had to do with the making of a motion picture. What job would you choose and why. (actor, screen writer, producer, music , make up artist…) Hmm. I’d probably want to take care of the animal actors off stage.

4. What type of movies do you like to watch? Comedies and documentaries.

5. If you were teaching an aspiring writer, what would be one important thing that you would want to tell them or teach them? I’d say, don’t censor yourself when brainstorming. Don’t be strict on yourself for grammar, properness, all of the “rules” etc, until you have gotten down all of your creative ideas onto paper first.

6. What do you like about blogging? I like having a place to say things when / how I want to say them, for the most part. And I love hearing from other people, and getting to see how other people are dealing with somewhat similar issues. I feel like I’ve made some friends on here. It can have a community feel.

7. What are your 3 favorite movies ? Silver Lining Playbook, …I can’t think of any others.

8. Write your own question here and answer it how you like. “What kind of question would I like to ask myself?” I have no idea.
