A Real Neat Blog Award | Blogger Tag!

Hey friends! I was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by Haley (thank you, Haley)! Today, I get to answer some questions, nominate other awesome bloggers, and ask them questions!

Let's get started!


  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Thank the person that nominated you and put a link to your award post on their blog.
  3. Answer the 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  4. Nominate any number of people linking to their blogs and letting them know you nominated them by commenting on their post.
  5. Come up with 7 questions for the people you nominated.


1. What is the most impactful advise you've ever been given?

Wow, this is a really good question! It's hard to think of just ONE thing! I guess the biggest advice I've been given is to base everything on God's Word. If something doesn't line up with the Bible, then it isn't true.

2. What three books have most shaped the way you think?

The first two are easy: Do Hard Things and Miracle for Jen. I had to think about the third one, but finally decided it's Lynn Austin's "Chronicles of the Kings" series.

3. If you had one wish, other than more wishes, what would it be?

One of my greatest wishes is to get published and bring glory to God with my writing. (Okay, I guess that could be considered two wishes bundled into one. XD)

4. If you could be any fictional character, who would it be and why?

I think it would be so neat to be one of the Pevensies, from Narnia. I can't say a specific one. I'm a girl, so that rules out Peter and Edmund. Susan is the older sister (like I am), but she eventually deserts Narnia. Lucy is the youngest, but she finds Aslan and Narnia and has amazing adventures! I think I'd like to be Lucy, but not the youngest sibling.

That was probably longer than you expected. ;)

5. What skill have you found to be most useful?

This is a very broad question, but one skill that I have found to be very useful is knowing how to write non-fiction. Some writers are considered non-fiction writers, while others are fiction writers. But honestly, all writers need to know how to write non-fiction, even if you don't want to write an entire non-fiction book (which I don't plan on doing, at least not at this time). I write non-fiction all the timein school, for websites (like TheReb), and for blogs.

6. Which blog post was the hardest one for you to write?

There have been several articles that have been hard to write (three from The Rebelution). But as for blog posts, I'd say this one (a guest post I wrote) was one of the hardest. It turned out well, but I had my doubts about it at first.

7. Have you ever not written a post that you wanted to write, and why not?

I can't think of any specific time, so no.

My Questions for Them

1. What is the best advice you've received about writing?
2. Who is your favorite author?
3. If one of YOUR characters could come to life, which one would you choose, and why?
4. Is there a character of yours that you would NOT want to meet in real life? Why not?
5. Would you rather have the rough draft written first so you could edit it, or would you rather write a rough draft and let someone else completely edit it? In other words, would you rather "draft" it or edit it?
6. How long have you been blogging?
7. What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Thanks again for tagging me, Haley! This was fun!

what about you?
If you weren't nominated in this post, answer the questions in the comments below! I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Yay! Another tag!!
    1. Write what you need to hear. When I first started writing actual novels I wondered sometimes about writing a story that was strictly one I wanted to read. I'm so glad I learned, that's the best thing ever.
    2. Douglas Bond or Joe Wheeler!
    3. LT Corey Schreiber, my medic. He's so much like me, but also not. <3
    4. Nope, honestly! I don't write villains, so...
    5. I'd rather draft it, let someone else mark everything needing editing and how, and then go through and implement their suggestions myself. I'm learning, but I'm still a super protective author, haha!
    6. Six months this week!!
    7. Connecting with likeminded writers and seeing my writing impact people. :D
    Also, tagged you for the Project Inspire Award!! https://soldiergirlstories.com/index.php/2019/07/24/the-project-inspire-award/
