I had a lovely evening speaking about historical fiction and research at a writing group on Wednesday evening, a little further south from where I live. Since the train was the most sensible way to travel in a late November evening, I made the most of the forty minute journey down and took out pen and paper. I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy writing on trains, or in my favourite cafe. And this was no exception. By the time the train drew in, I’d written around 600 words of my WIP (I checked the word count when transferring it to the computer yesterday). So as well as enjoying time with old friends and new, while talking about a favourite subject, it was very productive evening all round. I read on the way home!
I’m delighted to accept the cute Liebster Award from a supportive and friendly online writing colleague, Angela Barton, for blogs with fewer than 200 followers. I also received one from another lovely online friend, Melanie Robertson-King for my Romancing History blog. Liebster is German for dearest and I love the way we encourage and support each other in this competitive world of writing. I do enjoy reading other writers’ blogs as much as possible. So in the spirit of the award, this is what I and my recipients must do:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger
2. Choose your 5 bloggers to receive the award and tell them by leaving a comment on their blog
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog
4. Hope those five people send it to their chosen bloggers!
It’s now my pleasure to pass the Liebster Award on to the following five bloggers:
Gwen Kirkwood: a genuinely lovely person and writer of great fiction with a farming background
Debbie White: a brave writer who is positively moving on after personal trauma
Jean Bull: a new blogger who has published a great sounding book with a lovely cover
Anita Chapman: another fairly new blogger whose posts are so interesting
Freda Lightfoot: prolific novelist of some great titles and more recent blogger
Happy writing and blogging,
