Leibster Award


No, I don’t know what it is either, or who started it off.

I would like to thank James Harrington for nominating me. He is a very creative writer and has published lots already, so I am humbled.

Now, for the rules:

– Answer the 11 interview questions
– In your post, link back to the person who awarded you.
– Choose 3 other bloggers to award, focusing on those with 200 followers or below.
– Link to those bloggers in your post, then go and leave them comments to share the good news!
– Be sure to ask them 11 original questions.

Here are my answers to his 11 questions:

1. Describe the best character you’ve ever written.
My best character (I’ll ignore Jack, for the time being) has to be Rachel Jones, “The Raven”. She is a very complex person, and made a great impression on me.

2. Dog or Cat?
I’ve had both, but my little black and white Springer is my current doggy companion.

3. Favorite mythical creature?
Pooh Bear

4. Favorite book?
Too many to choose from. Maybe “Black Hills” by Dan Simmons.

5. Favorite Movie?
“Metropolis” by Fritz Lang.

6. Best literary quote?
“Infinity goes up on trial” – Bob Dylan, in “Visions of Johanna”.

7. Favourite author?
Too many! Charles Frazier has a very poetic command of the language.

8. Rain or Shine?
Definitely Sunshine!

9. Place you want to visit?

10. Favorite place to hangout?
“Band-On-The Wall” when it was still smokey, and they played real jazz.

11. Person you are most inspired by?
My Missus.

Now here are my nominees for the award! If you have already been nominated for this award, or think it is intrusive, a waste of time, or a rather pointless excercise, don’t worry! At least, it taught me finally how to include links, cut and paste from other blogs, and copy images. You never know until you try. 😉
