My 3 questions to answer:
1. What are some of the things you like to do that make you happy (besides writing)? Getting out in the sunshine, swimming, walking, bike riding, horse riding, reading, and coffee, shopping, summer holidays, and spending time with family.
2. Are you a fan of Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”? To be honest, I had never heard of Weird Al’s Word Crimes before, but just watch a video of it and thought it was pretty cool. So perhaps a fan in the making?
3. Are you a Sun Goddess/God or do you pal around with the Abominable Snowman? Defiantly a sun goddess! I love summer! Which is great because I live on the Gold Coast, in Australia. It’s pretty much warm all year round!

Encouraging Thunder Award

encouraging-thunderThank you Tessa for nominating my blog Ink and Quill, for the Encouraging Thunder Award. I’m humbled by the nomination and thank Tessa for her support and words of encouragement. Check out her inspiring site Tessacandoit

I started my blog around April this year and have found it to be a wonderful way to express myself, and be creative.

Before my blog I had always loved writing fiction. Not the best at short stories as I get carried away, just as I’m doing now…

I found out I loved writing poetry and have taken great pleasure in writing and sourcing beautiful imagery to share with you. I have also made some great connections with other incredible writers. Quite frankly I’m addicted to blogging.

There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, It’s hard to choose, but without any further ado, I nominate the following incredibly talented people;
