Liebster Award 2.1 - With Thanks

Golden Circle Basic

Hello all!

I was nominated again for the Liebster Award by the wonderful Sarah Rodecker @ Pen of a Ready Writer!! For those who don't know her, she is the co-founder of Order of the Pen, which is a Facebook/email group also devoted to clean YA. Please go check her out, she is a fantastic writer!

Instead of spotlighting another blog, I'm going to follow Sarah's example and give statements of appreciation. Especially since this is Thanksgiving and all.

Lia ~ My dearest sister, no matter how much praise I've given you, you deserve more. Thank you for being the sister I never had.

Mary Katherine ~ Thank you for being a listening ear when I have plot troubles. And for the dry humor in all of your posts :).

Gray ~ Thank you for starting the #RebelliousWriting movement. This movement means a lot to me, and I hope to serve for years to come :)

Anna ~ Thank you for those wonderfully beautiful deep posts. They always make me think of the world in a different light.

Melissa ~ Thank you for creating the "Questions to Ask When..." series. World building is always something that I struggle with, and these are going to help so much!

Audrey ~ Thank you for your uplifting and inspiring blog posts :)

Clare ~ Thank you for your wonderful reviews of movies. They are my favorite posts of yours, and your rating system is the best!

Lila ~ Thank you for your humorous blog posts. You always bring a smile to my face :).

Faith ~ Thank you for being a blogger that isn't afraid to speak her mind. I highly respect you for that.

Abby ~ Thank you for helping me out with those formatting issues with the Book Scout Bulletins I had earlier this year. You sacrificed a lot of time for me, and I greatly appreciate it so much.

Keturah ~ Thank you for taking on a certain project of mine after I was forced to abandon it :).

Ivie ~ Thank you for being a crusader and also not being afraid to speak your mind :)

Ceci ~ Thank you for being an unapolgetic fangirl and an awesome-sauce blogging buddy!

Belle Anne ~ Thank you for creating a wonderfully clean opera! I love the opera style, but I haven't listened to many because most have such...well... dirty plots. Here's to your success!

Lucy Agnes ~ Thank you for your wonderful posts about books and writing! My favorite of yours was "Define Favorite Character", most assuredly.

Jane Maree ~ Thank you for allowing me to join the Fellowship of the Keyboards for July Camp NaNo and for being an awesome cabin leader!! It was a wonderful introduction to the NaNo world :).

Quinley (Tes) ~  I always look forward to seeing your comments on both my blogs. Thank you for being such great NaNo and blogging buddy!

MiddleEarthMusician ~ You've been a cheerleader for me. Thank you also for being such a great NaNo buddy!

Julian ~ Thank you for that 10 post series on drafting, and the Shared WIP posts this year. I greatly enjoyed both of those series and I knew it took a lot of time and coordination.

And last, but certainly not least:

Sarah Rodecker ~ Thank you for this nomination (again!), and for creating another organization for clean YA. With more people making waves and more young people speaking out, we can create change :)

To all of my American readers, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Scribblingly yours,
