This is the first award that I have been nominated for on this website, so I’m really excited about it, with many thanks to Pete Denton. I started this blog as a way to get a little more creative writing in during my time at university, and to establish an outlet for some of my observations of life there. It’s given me every opportunity to do so, and I’ve had some brilliant feedback, so thank you to everyone who has commented here! (:
1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along 15 or 20.
4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.
Seven Things About Me:
1. I love knitting, sewing, and making things generally. I just love a good project.
2. The first story I ever wrote was based on a Miss Marple story, and I gave it a title page and colour illustrations. I made all members of my immediate family read it too.
3. I like walking, especially in pretty places, early in the morning. There’s a degree of peacefulness there, and the air is always sort of clear, and fresh. Before all the events of the day clutter the world up. (:
4. Rice pudding is my favourite dessert of all time, and cheeses, especially Stilton, are my favourite food.
5. Unlike most people, I love having a job; I even like getting up early to get there because it makes me feel I have a sense of purpose; I feel as though I have some control over everything.
6. I have been submitting pieces of writing, both long and short, to magazines for a number of years, and I will continue to do so until I break one of them down, and make them publish the ramblings of just another student.
7. I completed not one, but two AQA Extended Project qualifications for A-Level. I only submitted one, but finished off both. One in History and one in English Literature, which can be found above.
The Blogs I’d Like to Nominate:
These are some of my favourite blogs, but it is really hard to narrow them all down. Thank you to everyone who has had a look around my little blog, and thank you again for all the encouraging feedback! I hope you’ll take some time to look at the blogs below, and submit your thoughts! They are in no particular order; they’re all fascinating.
It was tough to choose only a few, but I really do like the ones I chose, and I hope you’ll all stick around, and have a look at them! Thanks for the award guys, and come back soon.
