Leibster Award

Leibster Award

A couple of weeks ago, Jamila Jamison gave me the Leibster Award. 

Thank you so much, Jamila; it is greatly appreciated! I have dithered about, and had a very hard time picking only five bloggers out of all the wonderful people I have met in the past few months. I decided not to give the award to bloggers who had already received it, in the spirit of bringing deserving people to others’ attention. All of these writers have been very supportive of me and I appreciate their help immensely. The rules are to post the Award on your blog, link back to the person who gave it to you, and then to pick five bloggers to whom to pay it forward.

I also want to preface this by saying that I don’t want to oblige anyone to more work than they want to take on. Please take it in the spirit in which it was offered, and do as much or as little as you wish.

Matt Hofferth  Matt wears a bunch of hats, and I am amazed that he can swap them all out with such finesse. He has a life, a day job, and hobbies, but still manages to write, and write well. In addition to interesting posts about the craft, he talks about the characters in his book and how he worked to make them real characters, despite their being paranormal creatures. http://www.hofferthbooks.com

Ruth Nestvold  Ruth writes science fiction and fantasy, which I love to read. Her posts share some of the research she does for her writing, as well as posts about the craft.  She and I share an appreciation for early female writers, who are often neglected in the literary canon. http://ruthnestvold.wordpress.com

Tia Bach Tia writes fiction that reads like reality, and that is something, even for fiction based on reality.  Tia posts about interesting blog posts she has read, or what she is working through in her writing. She always has something interesting to say. http://depressioncookies.blogspot.com

Rebecca Fleming I also met Rebecca during this Round of Words.  Rebecca is juggling writing and school, which is certainly something I can understand, and I almost always identify with her, except that she can draw and I can’t draw worth a hoot. I love her “ranting” blog, which identifies her as an anti-social desk-hermit, and introduces one to Judgemental Dog.  I dearly love Judgemental Dog.  http://rebecca-j-fleming.blogspot.com

Violante  is a new friend from the Platform-Building Campaign. She and I share a love of Gone with the Wind, as well as most things from the 1940’s. Along with four others, Violante writes about an interesting range of subjects, from discussions on writers as recluses, to solutions for writing problems. http://divinesecretsofthewritingsisterhood.blogspot.com

All of these writers are interesting and well worth following.  Give them a look.

  1. Elizabeth, this is very embarrassing, but I am a techno geek. How do I post this award in the Sisterhood Blog? None of the Sisters seems to be around this weekend for assistance.

    1. No need to be embarrassed, Violante! I’m a medievalist, and as such have tried to avoid learning as much as I should about all this! I’m on WordPress, so what I do may not translate to Blogspot, but it might. If you right click on the award and select View Image, it will give you the url. There is a box for the image url in the Image Widgit ’settings. I hope that works for you..

  2. An awesome privilege. Cheers! Though I am always juggling writing, drawing and uni, I can’t say I’m always successful lol However, I’m sure if Judgemental Dog could read, he would feel proud as well 😀

  3. Congrats, and thanks for passing the award on to me. I feel honored to be in such company. I will do a post in the next day or two. Thanks again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Thank you again! I replied to your comment and I need to do a proper post, but I’ve been busy. Then Nadja tagged me too and now I REALLY need to do a proper post. And think of something clever, because I don’t think I know five people that this hasn’t gotten around to (I like to think that means I have good taste).

    Anyway, it is much appreciated and I will get on the post like… today-ish. 🙂

    1. I’ve commented on your site as well, Matt. But hey, whenever you can get to it, it’s all good. It took me a while, too–there are so many great people, but lots of them already had it, and I wanted to give it to new people. However, I’m seeing lots of people who have gotten it from more than one person, so perhaps all that angst was unnecessary.

      Again, I’m very glad to pay it forward to you–well-deserved! 😀
