Versatile Blogger Award

I have been given the honor of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award from Missy @ Missy's Reads & Reviews. :) Big thanks to her for the award.

I also have the pleasure of passing this award on to 15 of the blogs I am following.

How the award works:
  • Shout from the mountaintop and slap this up all over your blog. :) Link back to the person who gave you the award.
  • Share seven things about yourself.
  • Once you're done doing a happy dance, pass this award along to 15 other blogs.  It can be awarded for any reason.
  • Make sure you contact the bloggers so that they know they've won! :)

Seven things about me:
  • I have two older brothers with autism. (They're 19 and 20.)
  • I've been writing since I was about eight-years-old.
  • I'm working on a young adult urban fantasy story right now.
  • I play the piano.  SHAMELESS SPAMMING: (Bella's Lullaby -- How It Was Meant To Be, performed by yours truly)
  • I was home schooled in the seventh, eighth and ninth grades. (I'll be in the 11th grade this coming school year.)
  • I was NOT this crazy until this past winter (blame my classmates in all my second semester classes my sophomore year).
  • I am a huge feminist and non-conformist. (My mother got exasperated with me one day and said, "You are such a nonconformist." I just smiled at her and said, "Thank you.")
The fifteen awesome blogs that are receiving this award: (You don't have to set up your list like mine.  But if I'm going to hand out an award to somebody, I want them to know why. XD)

  • The Mountains of Instead - Another awesome layout (what's with all the drop-dead gorgeous layouts!? XD) besides that, she's BRITISH!  Enough said!
