Infinity Dreams Award

Hey, everyone!

I’ve been nominated by writinganyone for the Infinity Dreams Award, which is something I’ve never done before.

id-awards

Rules are:

-Thank the person who nominated you. (Thanks, writinganyone! :))

-Answer their 11 questions.

-Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions.

 

Now, onwards to the rest of the mission!

1. What is your worst memory?

Ah, lovely cheerful start.

Probably one of our dogs dying. Gilligan, our dog who I actually put into my first book, Odd Team Out, had some heart problems and died after being completely fine two days before. He had a horrible cough; we took him to the vet, got some pills and took him back. We put him on the dog bed, and even though he could barely walk he got up and gave the bed to our other dog, Ginger. Then when I went out to say goodnight he was dead.

Not fun.

But, he lives on in Odd Team Out, and a picture on my wall. 🙂

2. If you could be any book character, who would you be?

Oooohh . . . how can you make me choose? *thinks really hard for a long time*

I’ll just list five top ones, okay?

Fergus Leatherhead. My favorite character from my favorite books.

Tintin. Because Tintin does everything awesome. (We’ll ignore the fact that he gets knocked out roughly 70 times over the course of his series. I counted.)

Cobalt Winter. Because he’s mine. 🙂

Lady Carliss, from Chuck Black’s books. One of my favorite book heroines.

Imogen from The Ascendance Trilogy. Because I’ve said to many boys to say *ahem* Sage.

 No pic for her, sorry.

 

3. When you were really little (3-7?), what did you want to be when you grew up?

At 3, the only recorded ambition I had was to be the ugly duckling’s friend.

A year or two down the line after that I got really into crafts. I made myself a shirt and apron out of construction paper and when Mom hurt herself I would worriedly ask if there was anything I could craft her. So, maybe Craft Mart employee?

The only job ambition I really remember having was being a sailor, other than that.

I was also really into making up stories and acting them out with my sister and multiple stuffed animals. I loved coming up with stories and was constantly running off to an empty room to play my new character. The thought of actually writing those stories down never really occurred to me until I was 12 . . .

 

4. Least favorite candy?

Well, milk chocolate Hershey’s Kisses are pretty dang gross (though I like the other kinds). And Butterfingers, just for the fact that I couldn’t care less for peanut butter.

 

5. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?

Umm . . . well . . . *thinks* I like my name pretty well. But, maybe something nature-y? Like Ivy or something. I also like my book character Robin’s name pretty well.

 

6. Cake or ice cream?

Ice cream, thank you. 🙂

 

7. What is your favorite thing to do?

What sort of a question is that?! Out of everything I could do in the whole world you want me to pick one thing? Outrage!

I’ll say . . . be outside. That’s my favorite thing to do because I can do a lot of things while I’m doing it. 😛

 

8. Favorite winter activity?

Sledding. Down an enormous hill. All day.

 

9. Favorite continent (other then the one you live on)?

Europe. And more specifically, The UK and Ireland.

 

10. Least favorite cookie?

Raisin-y ones. I don’t like raisins.

 

11. What is your middle name (and if you don’t want to answer this, what do you wish your middle name is)?

Jean. Well, that explains the name of my heroine in Odd Team Out. She was originally supposed to be me. But, *shrug* characters develop. She’s only one of my moods now. 😛

So, that was fun! Now, I nominate:

Gabrielle at Write For The King

Audrey at The Measure of a Book

Erin at The Upstairs Archives

Daisy at A Bookish Flower

Rivkah at Fruitful Vine Wife Blog

  1. YOU DON’T LIKE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES?! *cries*
    I miss my dog, Diamond. He was a superhero. He had a purple cape. He didn’t try to fight the baby even when the baby was picking on him. (What breed was Gilligan? Diamond was a black Labrador Retriever, though at the end he had some gray coming in.)
    Also, who’s Imogen?
    And hey! i remember that! I tried to make myself a pair of overalls out of printer paper when I was little. I wanted to be my mom when I was tiny. Fun times 😉

    • Nope, not really. Though that is the most palatable form of raisins. 😉
      Aaww, he sounds sweet. Gilligan was a shelter dog, but I think he was an Irish Wolfhound-black lab mix. He was so sweet. 🙂 Our dog now, Bullwinkle, is the same breed, though with a bit more lab in him.
      Imogen is a side character in the ascendance trilogy. I’m afraid to say more because of spoilers. Those books are chock full of surprises…
      Haha, cool! XD great minds think alike, I guess. 😉
