Passing on the Award

(Conveniently, a double "P" post for today!)

Shannon Lawrence at The Warrior Muse and Melody Jackson at The Tales of Sirius the Dragon both presented me with this award (thank you!!):

Melody had some rules to accepting the award. They were as follows:

1. Link back to the person who gave you the award.
2. State seven things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
4. Contact the bloggers and let them know they've won.

Seven things about me:

1. I got married when I was eighteen. My husband and I had known each other for two and a half months when we married. We've now been married for over nine years.

2. I lived about half my life in Tennessee and only moved away about three years ago.

3. Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my all-time favorite TV shows EVER and it's a cartoon. It had some of the most amazing, beautifully put together storytelling that I have ever seen.

4. I like socks. I can't stand being barefoot for very long and I'm not very fond of shoes. I do like my huge black winter boots because they're fun to clump around in, but only when I have to go out in the snow.

5. I love music. I write much better if I have music, and there are some songs that get listened to so much while I'm writing certain stories or characters that afterward, I can't listen to that song while writing anything else.

6. I enjoy many sci-fi shows. Star Trek: Voyager was my favorite Trek show. They used to play reruns every night during my junior/senior years of high school, so I caught up on reruns on a tiny TV I'd bought for my bedroom and watched the last season as it aired.

7. My favorite color is blue.

I know this award is going around, so some might already have this, but I'm passing this onto:

1. Robin Weeks

2. Becky Taylor Books

3. Rachel Morgan

4. Elizabeth Twist

5. Elouise Bates

6. Threadmaiden

7. Alexis Bass Writes

8. My First Book

9. Moody Writing

10. Laura Pauling

11. Karen Jones Gowen

12. Dawn Embers

13. Musings of Penniless Writer

14. NiaRaie

15. Rebecca Dupree

I have no rules about accepting this award. If you want to pass it on, lovely. If not, enjoy. :)


  1. Yay! Thanks! I was thinking I already had this one, but looks like I never actually accepted it (Donna gave it to me a while back). I guess I'll have to repent and pass it on, huh? :)

  2. Thank you so much!
    Ooh, and I also don't like being barefoot for long, even though my family looks at me strangely for always wearing some kind of shoe.

  3. Thanks Laura, very sweet of you.


  4. Thank you for my award! It made my day!

  5. Congrats to you and the new winners on the award!

  6. I don't often hear people say they like socks. Usually they hate them. But I like those fuzzy socks that are always on sale around Christmas time.
    And Of course I'm interested. Thanks so much for my award. :)

  7. Thanks for passing along the award!

    Voyager is my favorite Star Trek, and one of my all-time favorite shows, too. I know a lot of people didn't care for it, but I love all the characters.

  8. Thanks for the award...cool info about you. I thought I was young getting marries at 23. My mom got married at 19.

  9. Thank you!!!

    And I also enjoy socks :) haha

  10. That is awesome, Laura. Thank you!

  11. I'm completely opposite... I hate socks and will rip them off at the earliest opportunity. Sometimes my husband wears socks to bed, and I have to get up and rip them off him in the middle of the night because I CAN'T STAND THE TEXTURE. Heh. Heh. Heh........

    I'd go barefoot year-round if I lived in a warmer climate :)

  12. Thanks so much for the award!

    How are you enjoying Across the Universe?
