And we have been tagged, by our frabjous bloggy friend Krazy! I’m a bit new to the whole process, though, because mime usually takes care of tags and such. But she’s sick. Poor mime. I have been delegated to complete the task, so here goes…
This is the Liebster award (again).
Rules: (not too notorious, I hope…)
Post eleven random facts about yourself, answer the eleven questions the awarder has given you and make up eleven questions for your awardees to answer in return. Tag eleven fellow bloggers, and notify them of the award.
What is it with the number eleven?! And I won’t be tagging 11 people…just sayin’.
1. I like to get up early. 6am is fun, but more often it’s 7am (but it does get lonely being up so early when no on else will. Eh, mime?)
2. My parents both have a bit of Italian blood, so I have dark thick hair and I tan easily. They also have a bit of German, hence our last name of…Drews… But none of us are blue-eyed blondes. I guess the Italian genes won out.
3. A lot of people mistake me for a school teen. I’ve been graduated for 2 years now. (They also ask me if I’m in Year 10. Come on!)
4. To me, the best books have awesome characters. A good plot is a bonus…ah, but the characters! They must be real and spectacular.
5. I’d like to be able to take photos. Properly.
6. I have a competition in mind that I’m going to enter my novel into (next year!).
7. I like necklaces, but can’t stand watches or bracelets/bangles because I play too many instruments.
8. All up I’ve learnt 4 instruments, but only kept on 3 (just the violin, cello, and piano). I think it’d be fun to try the viola, but not the double-bass. We’d have to get an even bigger car.
9. A lot of the time, I’d rather listen then talk. Unless it’s just mime and I, and then we talk over the top of each other like good sisters should.
10. Lots of people around make me nervous. Unless they’re on the blog…
11. I love walking (or running, but walking is decidedly easier). I have to walk at least twice a day or I go bonkers. Even if I’m chatting while walking with my mum or mime, it helps me work through any writers’ blocks I have. My brain writes better if I can walk a lot.
