The Liebster Award

So, Shahashel from Crazy Ideas With Crazy Fun did this Liebster Award post and, while I wasn’t amongst her nominees that she listed, she did then add that anyone else who wants to do this can do it, so voila! Challenge accepted πŸ˜„

Thank you Shahashel for my non-nomination πŸ‘

She’s a great blogger – go check her out!


  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) gave you.
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers that deserve the reward.
  5. Create 11 original questions for the nominees to answer.
  6. Let them know they’ve been nominated.

Okay 11 facts about me:

  1. I get really tired with this section of the award
  2. I like to explore the darker reaches of my imagination sometimes.
  3. I won’t apologise for that
  4. I’m an eclectic writer (i.e. – can write a variety of genres fairly well even if I do say so myself)
  5. I love to write characters who are tormented/depressed/dealing with something terrible as it provides really solid drama and emotion to the story and just makes things overall even more interesting (that’s not to say I cannot write other types of characters as well – as I can – but the ones with the inner demons are the ones that, to me, are quite interesting to write as they challenge me a little as a writer more so than other types of characters).
  6. I love writing roleplay
  7. I love emojis
  8. I’m running out of things to say
  9. Oh! Last week, I finished another one of my Year 12 courses! 😎
  10. I loveΒ The Greatest Showman – most of all, I love the songs (I even sung one of the songs in it recently, which you can find if you click here)
  11. Yay! This part of the award is finally over! πŸ₯³


  • Would you rather stay at home and continue online classes or go outside and take classes??

Stay at home and study. While I do love going out, I’d rather study at home.

  • Candy or Chocolate???

CHOCOLATE!!!!! Hands down!!!!!

  • Have you ever done or asked someone something that after doing that you became paralyzed???

You mean with fear? Yes. Yes, I certainly have. A few times. Or sometimes the mere thought of doing/saying something can practically paralyze me with fear as well.

  • Have you ever believed something as a child which you don’t believe now???

Haven’t we all?

  • What’s the best quote you remember right now???

Actually, Shahashel, it’s from your blog. It’s this one:

Failure is the back door to success.
Failure is the true test of greatness. We must learn to become the kind of person who plans things but who doesn’t fall apart if that plan doesn’t work out.

From this post here:

  • Did you ever try to prank someone that backfired on you???

Not that I immediately remember as I’ve never been one to really pull pranks as I’m terrible at them. I may like to verbally “pull someone’s leg” (which has backfired on me a few times) but that’s the only real extent of my pranking life.

  • Is there a subject that you would remove from the world??

Hmm…will have to think on this one a little bit πŸ€”

  • Could you ever imagine a world made out of chocolate???



  • Is there something you always wanted to do but never could do???


  • What’s your favourite colour?????


  • Are you afraid of a specific animal????



Anyone who….

*drumroll please*

…loves romance!!!


Be Very Worried Anxious GIF - BeVeryWorried Anxious VeryTense GIFs

What is the most romantic thing that you have read? (i.e. – from a novel)

A morning or night person?

How do you have your eggs? (If you eat them)

Is there something about award posts that annoys you? If so, what is it and why?

Do you like surprises?

Conspiracy theories or no?

What are your personal opinions about reading fiction? Yay/Nay and why? (I recently got into a debate with someone about the merits of reading fiction, so am curious what everyone else’s opinions on it are)

What is some music that you would recommend to me?

Do you like medieval stuff like dresses/outfits/weapons, etc?

Have you ever participated in a roleplay group in any way? If so, how?

If I was to ask you to join me on a ride on the back of a dragon, what would you say?

    I sure hope you’ve been very well???

        If you checked the new one … to get the comment section, you would have to scroll down to the very bottom of the page to drop a comment, after adverts of older posts.

        Thank you for checking… would love to hear more from you

      4. Yeah, I understand that.
        I’m alright. Just had a really rough day yesterday, but it’s not something that I want to discuss on here at all.
        Nah, my family and I are unaffected by it. Well, we are affected in the sense that we are restricted in the number of things we can and cannot buy with some items, but otherwise we aren’t affected by it at all. Hope it isn’t affecting you too badly.

      5. Ohhh I do understand sorta… thank you for sharing that with me. Just try to rest the stress out yeah? Sorry.

        Glad you all are safe out there, better times are coming… just you hang in there.

        Yea, just the general effect it is having on my country and the economy. Other than that, we are also very well and safe… Thanks be to God.

      6. Yes pls and when you do need to talk, I’ll be here. 😊😊

        Not much really. Remotely doing some work for sustenance and sanity. Lol.

        Then I started a ebook, havent gone so far tho but I do hope to publish really soon so I’m going to have to be intentional about it.

        How about you… anything new?

      7. Thanks.

        Ah, okay, lol. Hope it all goes well.

        Nice! Wish you all the best with it. What’s the ebook about?

        Earlier this year, a couple of my brothers were in hospital quite frequently due to having seizures and such.

      8. Omg!!!
        Definitely this isn’t talk for this platform. I would love to ask more details but no please, it is definitely too public on here.

        But I do hope they are so much better now. So sorry to hear that, I can imagine how draining and scary that would have been.

        Thank you so much on the luck… I look forward to sharing the good news soon.

      9. Yeah, that and some other things – definitely not to be talked about on here.

        Yeah, they seem to be better now. Thank you. Yeah, it definitely was scary and draining.

        You’re welcome, anytime. I look forward to when it’s published!
