My friend K, at pibbsdreamquest has nominated me for a Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
I have to answer 10 questions put to me by K, and nominate 5 other bloggers that I follow, create 10 questions that I would like my nominees to answer, and then notify them on their blogs.
K’s questions are as follows:
1.If you ever wrote a novel–what genre would it be and what would the name of your main character be?
I’d write about a police woman, so that would make it crime/fiction? The name of my main character would be Katherine Holcroft.
2.If you ever wrote a Non-Fiction book–what subject would it be about?
True Crime. I’d love to write about Col. Russell Williams, who is a convicted serial rapist and double murderer, and who was the base commander at the largest Air Force Base in Canada when he committed his crimes.
3.Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen one?
I do believe in ghosts or spirits, and yes I have seen one. I woke up one night and there was this little old man standing at the end of my bed, with a peaked cap on. I said “who are you?”, but of course got no reply. It took a good 60 seconds before he faded away, and I never saw him again, but it really scared me half to death!
4.What is your favorite season? List your five favorite things about that season.
Spring: Tulips; everything starts turning green again after a long cold winter; the tree buds are blooming and will soon sprout leaves; you know you’re in for at least 6 months of nice weather ahead; and camping season starts!!
5.If you had one minute to talk to your 17 year old self, what would you say?
Have a lot more fun! You’re not fat, you’re gorgeous!, you’re smart, and you should definitely go for that law degree. Also, start investing now into RRSP’s. The earlier you start, the more the money will compound annually.
6.What song would you choose as your theme song?
“I’m Still Standing” by Elton John
7.If you could witness one event in history, what would it be and why?
The D-Day Invasion – For whatever reason I’ve always felt a connection to WWII, since I was a child. I used to love watching “Combat” with my brothers and dad when I was about 5 or 6. I’ve always loved war movies; they are my constant go-to picks when I’m looking for something to watch. The D-Day Invasion was SO big, and SO devastating, and involved so many countries all acting in concert with one another, that it must have been an overwhelming site to see all of those ships and landing craft, soldiers emptying onto the beaches at Normandy, paratroopers running lost all over France (but ultimately confusing the enemy). I am fascinated by people’s ability to face fear like that, and still do their jobs.
8.Who has been the biggest creative influence in your life?
Patricia Cornwell (Author). Her writing style is very similar to mine, and I enjoy her books immensely.
9.What is your Dream Quest?
To be able to travel as much as I want to, when I want to, and have the money to do it!
10.Have you started it yet?
Yes. I’m building up from nothing, budgeting to hopefully start tent camping, then trailer camping when I have a little more in the budget, and eventually RV/Motorhome travel. I can’t wait to meet all of those free spirited women who are already living the dream.
I’ll have to get back to this later, but wanted to share my excitement with my friends!
