Snow in the Mountains
Snow is beautiful most any day Even when it's cloaked in gray I prefer it in the mountains far away For humans, snow causes such a fuss Sometimes people even cuss When shoveling is a must When I look at the mountains near I imagine antelope, elk, and deer Who have nary a care or fear Funny how looking out the window Can make you love the snow And prompt your imagination so - Ashlynn R.

I was nominated for a blogging award and along the way, I was inspired to write the poem above. Now on with those pesky things called rules and how I fulfill them.
- Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Thanks are now going out to Jim Webster at https://jandbvwebster.wordpress.com/ who nominated me. You might recall that I’ve helped Mr. Jim out on a few blog tours.
- Write a post to show your award.
That post is progressing, well don’t you think?
- Give a brief story of how your blog started.
I began this blog to journal my writing. Somehow, the writing stalled out but the blog post continued on. I suppose that’s a good indication that I need to slow down my social media interactions and write more.
However, if I had done that, then I wouldn’t be reading Take Off Your Pants by Libbie Hawker and learning how to get an outline done in order to get my book back on track.
I suppose finding balance is the key.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Write something that interests you and you believe will interest others. Find a central theme for your blog – my theme is books and authors.
Share other bloggers’ work from time to time when it relates to your theme.
- Select up to fifteen bloggers you want to give this award to.
Belinda Witzenhausen’s Boho and Books blog: https://bohoandbookish.wordpress.com/
John D. Ottini – Author: https://jdonovels.wordpress.com/
Sylvia McGrath via Professor Owl’s Book Corner: http://www.professorowlsbookcorner.com/
I interact with these blogs and bloggers on a somewhat regular basis. If you are into books (in some form or fashion), I imagine you’d like their blog posts as well.
- Comment (or pingback) on each blog to let them know that you’ve nominated them and provide a link to the post you’ve created.
I’ll work on letting them know that I’ve mentioned them here.
Thank you for stopping by today.
