SCRIBBLED TO PAPER

COLLECTIONS OF WRITING, PHOTOGRAPHY AND MORE; EXPERIENCES YOU CAN CONNECT WITH. THIS IS LIFE SCRIBBLED THROUGH THE EYES AND HEART OF AN EVERYDAY JOE.

Because I was curious, I looked up the word “Liebster” and realized its origins were German and it means sweetheart/dearest which I think is so wonderful.

 

Random things about me:

  • I am a follower of Christ.
  • I hate tight spaces and am severely claustrophobic
  • I absolutely LOVE dark chocolate, like a lot.
  • I started writing when I was 5 years old.
  • I once wanted to be an actress on Broadway
  • I sing karaoke all the time just for fun when I’m alone
  • Disney is the best thing ever, you cannot change my mind

 

Here’s ten questions I’ve been asked to answer:

  1. What emotion do you want to convey the most in your writing?
    • Encouragement! I really hope that through my blog, in particular, that I am encouraging other writers to write more and to write better!
  2. What emotion do you want to feel the most when reading someone else writing?
    • I want to feel moved. Whether this is indignation, love, disgust, admiration, I just want to feel something. Writing isn’t writing to me unless their is an emotional 
  3. Would you prefer a poem that is more eloquent in words or more expressive in emotion?
    • A good poem should have both, but if I had to chose, I would must rather be moved by the emotion of the poem than to notice the wording.
  4. Do you set a goal for how often you post?
    • Ha, that is something I am currently trying to decide. I don’t know if it’s possible, for me at least, to post every single day. I know for sure I plan to continuously post twice a week (and hopefully more like four times a week). I’m playing around with that right now.
  5. Where do you write the most?
    • I write the most at work actually (shh, don’t tell my boss)
  6. What time do you write the most?
    • I write better in the morning surprisingly since I’m not really a morning person
  7. Do you write spur of the moment or do you spend long periods of time writing or editing a post?
    • BOTH! I will spur of the moment write a post, but schedule it for a week or so away so that I can go back and edit it.
  8. What do you drink first thing in the morning?
    • Some form of tea, cold or hot, tea is life
  9. What moments or situations in life can bring you back to an important memory?
    • Smells. For me, a certain smell can trigger an avalanche of emotion.
  10. What is one of your favorite comfort foods?
    • Chocolate. Sorry, that’s such a female answer but it’s 100% true. If I am mad, if I am sad, if I am happy, give me chocolate and not that milk chocolate stuff, I like the dark chocolate the best.

  2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
  3. Write a 150-300 word post about your favourite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.
  4. Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.
  5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!
  6. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here or simply link to this post.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to.
  7. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine (Jack Henry) if you don’t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!) Post a comment in the comments below (on the website https://theglobalaussie.com/blog/liebster-award-2017/ ) so I (Jack Henry) can view your post and check out your blog.
