Flight of Fantasy Blog Award! YOU’RE tagged!

Woots! I’ve have been nominated for The Flight of Fantasy Award (created by the wonderful Sophie Tallis. Give her a follow!) I was nominated by both Maegan Provan (my book sistah) and Tricia Drammeh (our appointed book-mama). She’s been awesome, and Maegan and I are growing steadily under her tutelage. :)

Here are the official rules for The Flight of Fantasy Award:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 11 things about yourself (it’s a Spinal Tap thing!), including why you love fantasy and your first or favourite fantasy book.
  4. Nominate 7 bloggers for this award and link to them. (If you want to link back to me as well, that would be lovely but isn’t required!)
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

My eleven random facts:

  1. I just had my wisdom teeth out four days ago.
  2. I got in trouble for reading during class in high school. (Better than getting in trouble for sleeping I guess.)
  3. I’ve always loved fantasy. Most of my childhood was spent dreaming, writing, or drawing myself as something other than human. I’m still disappointed I’m a human, lol.
  4. I’ve got a lot of favorite fantasy books. Epic fantasy type stuff, I’ve fond of Jim Butcher’s alera books. Other than that, I’ll read absolutely anything that’s modern fantasy.
  5. I recently got engaged to my boyfriend of ten years. (Wearing the ring since December 8th, 2012!)
  6. I become randomly obsessed with songs. It’ll get stuck in my head at random, and I’ll listen to it on repeat for a couple of days.
  7. I’ve always wanted to fly. You know when they ask you what super power you’d have? Mine would be to fly. How sweet would that be?
  8. I’ve always wanted to learn to play the cello, violin and piano. I played the flute in middle/high school though.
  9. My favorite food ever is orange chicken.
  10. A lot of the characters in my books / planned series are recycled characters from the MMOs I’ve played, or RP’s that I’ve done. (I’m a nerd, shut up.)
  11. I sing things to Maegan over skype between editing/writing.

My seven nominees for The Flight of Fantasy Award:

  1. Maegan Provan
  2. Tricia Drammeh
  3. Shelina Valmond, A Writer Inspired
  4. Cynthia Dumarin
  5. Dawn Chapman
  6. Everyone else! If you’ve read this, write fantasy of any kind, or know a blogger who deserves to be mentioned, PASS THIS ON. Seriously. Jump in, participate! YOU are tagged! :D

  5. I love modern fantasy stuff, especially shifters, despite my first book being about Witches.
  6. I’m learning ASL (American Sign Language.) I want to be an Interpreter (if the book thing doesnt work out… maybe even if it does. Sign language is beautiful.)
