Ze Liebster Blog Award:

1. Thank the Liebster Blog presenter who nominated you and link back to their blog.  First, I would like to thank the kind bloggers over at Write Despite for nominating me!  I was so glad to have found them because their journey is much like mine, except clearly more structured.  I can’t wait to see how their year of writing goes, and I hope this post helps get them more followers to join them on their Epic Quest. (Second, I’d like to thank the Universe for creating dinosaurs, for without their inspiration in my formative years I never would have had an excuse to write.)
