The Daydreamer Award

Blog Award, Daydreamer, Coffee n' Notes

Happy Friday everyone ❀ I hope you are all having a wonderful day and a great weekend πŸ™‚

This week was busy and a bit hard with the hot weather. However, I had a couple of days to myself where I was able to write, edit and just rest, how wonderful πŸ˜€

Onto the award, though… I was nominated by the lovely author Kate from Kate M. Colby to do this fabulous award, so long ago (sorry for that, Kate). Thank you so much, Kate, for this unique award, I loved how different it is from other awards. If you don’t know Kate, you must go to her blog and check out her wonderful posts and her amazing book and ebooks. I assureΒ you, you’ll love them and her ❀

Divider, Coffee n' Notes

Now, onto the award Β πŸ˜‰

Daydreams

Wow, daydreams for me are mostly about the things I need/want to do that day. How I will need to organize papers for my mom, or tidy around the house, calls I need to do, making dinner and about more chores like that, lol (not glamorous at all).

However, I also do daydream about scenes in my book and about my characters (as most authors might do, I think, lol). I play out in my head a few scenes I’m still not sure about or want to tweak a bit and Imagine my characters’ daily life before my story began and see how they lived and what their dreams were.

Night Dreams

My night dreams are mostly about three things and they are one of my biggest inspiration:

My family, friends, and people around me, I dream about helping them and trying to make things easy on them. Let’s say my friend has a problem and we talk about it, I may dream of some new path she can go that might help her with her problem and so on. I have these dreams about myself as well when I have a problem and I’m trying to find a way how to fix it in my dreams, lol. I call these dreams work dreams (don’t know why).

At night I also dream about ideas and newΒ worlds. My dream-journals are filled with new characters and royal families for many fantasy worlds, having many issues that must be resolved, lol. I even wrote two novels from that dream journal. I call these dreams writer’s dreams, as I think most writers tend to do that Β πŸ˜€

Goal Dreams

I mostly dream about being a published author  ❀ I want to be published traditionally and independently.

Why both? Well, I want to experience them both Β πŸ˜€

Cat

Well, that is all for this award and you got to know a little bit more about me and my dreams ❀ Hope you enjoyed reading as much as I loved doing this award. I will not nominate anyone, but if anyone would like to take on the award and share their dreams, please do Β πŸ™‚ And Kate, thank you so much for this award Β πŸ™‚

What are your daydreams and night dreams? Don’t be shy and share in comments, I would love to read all about them πŸ™‚

As always, thank you so much for reading  ❀

One Lovely Blog Award

one-lovely-blog-award-badge1

I was nominated by the lovely Claudia from Claudia Marie πŸ™‚ If you don’t know her or her wonderful blog, you must check it out. I love her posts both on beauty and health. There are so many inspiring posts, in a very clean and beautiful package and Claudia is an amazing blogger to follow ❀

Thank you, Claudia so much for nominating me. It truly made my day.

I will list 7 (random, weird and hopefully interesting) facts about me πŸ˜‰

Let’s get started:

  1. I love writing. Just in this year and a half, I’ve written 3 full books (now the hard part is here, the editing stage). I love the writing tons more than the editing, but this as well must be done, lol.
  2. I do not like shopping for clothes – I know it may sound weird, but shopping for clothes always seem to bring anxiety and stress with it.
  3. I love the sound that my thumb does when I move it from side to side (yep.)
  4. I love inventing new languages as a hobby (My first inspiration to start playing with this was the time I’ve read LOTR for the first time).
  5. I really can’t handle the hot weather, more so since my Addison’s Disease.
  6. I love reading books so much. My E-book collection is growing way too fast, lol (over 400 books, yep) and printed books I have about 500.
  7. My love for nerdy/geeky things is growing as I get older.

I hope you liked these random and weird facts about me. Please let me know some nice/weird/interesting facts about you in the comments below!

Thank you so much for reading ❀

I have multiple Tags and Awards that continued to gather in my drafts folder. I truly meant to do and post them, but I couldn’t find the right time.

The Liebster Award

LiebsterAward

Happy Tuesday to you all,

I hope you are all having a wonderful and restful day. Today was a nice day beside my eye swelling up (don’t know why), but other than that it was a nice and calm day at home while I caught up on some blog posts and house chores.

I was nominated for this award a while back by the lovely Karen from Shade But No Shade blog. Thank you so much for this amazing award Karen and I am so sorry for being so late in posting this award. If you don’t know Karen or her lovely blog, go pay her a visit and say hello πŸ™‚

RULES:

  1. Once you are nominated, make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
  2. Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too.
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you.

  5. Lastly, COPY these rules in the post.
  6. ALL THE NOMINEES ARE FREE TO ACCEPT OR REJECT THE NOMINATION.
    Stay Blogging Peeps! πŸ™‚

Karen’s Questions:

What inspires you to be the best you that you can be?

Such a great question. I think for me it’s since I was a kid, if I loved something I wanted to be the best I can be. As a person, I think what inspire me to be the best I can be is the people I love. They show me who I am each day and who I want to be… For me they are very inspiring and motivating πŸ™‚

Choose one life changing moment. What would it be and why?

It’s hard to choose, but I will make this more specific to blogging. Starting Coffee n’ Notes changed my life in so many ways. I became less scared of sharing and talking to others, I enjoy the community so much and the supporting people but mostly it made me love writing even more than before.

Do you prefer paperback, hardcover, tablets, or e-readers? Tell me why! πŸ˜€

I love them all, lol πŸ˜€ Each and every one of these have their own purpose in my life. But printed books are the best I think. The smell of a new book as I flip through the pages is beyond amazing to me.

If you could go back in time, what is one moment you would tell the β€œyounger” you to avoid?

Don’t listen to the people who said I can’t do things.

What is your all time favorite song?

Breathe Me By Sia ❀ But I also love the song Who will love me now By PJ Harvey. They are so… perfect and always make me emotional πŸ˜€

You only get one meal to eat on a Friday. Would you eat healthy or go all in?

All in, lol.

Who do you look up to and how did they make an impact?

I have some authors that inspire me to work harder when I know how they worked and struggled, but lately there are a few bloggers here that make me think of my writing and blogging as I read their posts.

What has blogging done for you?

Wow! Big question πŸ˜€ Blogging changed my life so much and I have learned so much about my writing and my life. The people here are so amazing and so supportive that it helped me free the anxiety I feel each time I want to share my writing or any socializing, lol.

Do you have any favorite activities besides blogging? Please share! πŸ™‚

Writing πŸ˜€ Reading ❀ But also I love to play the guitar, sing (badly, but I still love it, lol), draw, color, and paint, game as much as I can (gw2 mostly) ❀

Describe your best childhood moment. Do you miss it?

I stared at this question for too long, lol and sadly I really can’t think of the ‘best childhood moment’ But I do miss people from my childhood.

That is all for this award, hope you enjoyed reading and getting to know me a little more πŸ™‚

Most of my fellow bloggers had already done this award, so I am not going to nominate anyone for this award, however, if you want to do this award consider yourself nominated πŸ˜€

Blogger Recognition Award

bloggerrecognitionaward

Hello to all my wonderful readers and fellow bloggers πŸ™‚ I hope you are all having a nice day.

I was nominated by the awesome blogger we all know and love Katie from Plus+ Beauty. Thank you so much Katie, for this amazing award and I am so excited to do it. If you don’t know Katie or her blog, go and say hello and I am sure you’ll love her posts and the lovely blogger herself ❀

Rules

1) Write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips.

2) nominate some of your fellow bloggers.

3) comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

Why I started blogging?

Wow, thinking back a whole year is getting hard, but for me, there were two major reasons for starting a blog:

  1. To have some sort of a Writer/Author Platform.
  2. To be able to share my passion for writing, reading and share my thoughts while overcoming the anxiety and fear, I had (and still do sometimes) when it comes to sharing my writing.
  3. To meet new people who share this passion I have for writing and reading.

Here are some little tips that work for me πŸ™‚

  1. Interact with other bloggers and your readers. Comment, like, share and just enjoy this wonderful community. I’ve met so many amazing people here and I’ve learned (and still learning) so much from them. You would be amazed just how much this will change your life ❀
  2. Be kind and nice to all that come through your blog, even if sometimes you will get a hurtful comment, stay professional and kind.
  3. Be yourself and show who you are and who you want to be, after all, you are special just as you are and your readers will love your blog when you are true to yourself.
  4. Be creative and fun. Think of your readers and yourself as you write your posts πŸ˜€
  5. Be patient. Don’t worry about the numbers and just keep blogging ❀

Blog Tour Award

the-blog-tour

Hello to all my wonderful readers πŸ™‚ How’s your week going? I hope things going smoothly for you this week πŸ™‚ I was nominated by the lovely Katie from Plus+ Beauty for this lovely award! If you aren’t following Katie’s lovely blog, then please get over there and give her a follow. I love her blog a lot and Katie is just a wonderful and down to earth blogger. She is amazing and you will love following her a lot ❀

Thank you so much, Katie for nominating me and it was really fun doing it πŸ˜‰

The Rules

  1. Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
  2. Give your nominees the rules and a specific Monday to post.
  3. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
    • How does my work differ from others in my genre?
    • How does my writing/creative process work?
    • Why do I write or create what I do?
    • What I’m working on at the moment?
  4. Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nominator) – Mine was the 22 of June.

My AnswersΒ 

1. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

Wow, This is such a hard question! I don’t think my blog differs very much from other writer’s blogs. I know that I try hard to make it more relatable to others that are not writers/authors and keep things more light and fun. I try to keep up with all my reader’s blogs and see what they like and how I can better my blog that way, for them (and for me).

2. How does my writing/creative process work?

If this question was meant for blogging, then it’s much simpler than my novel writing process πŸ˜‰ I write an idea in my notebook, then on my laptop, I try to write all I want on that idea and I take in consideration my readers here as well. I try to keep my posts short (most of the time) and I write what I want but in a more light way. I also try to find nice pictures to keep things on the same level as the posts.

3. Why do I write or create what I do?

Okay, I want to be truthful here. At first, I started the blog because of two major reasons. 1. To have some sort of an Author Platform. 2. To share my writing process, my thoughts about writing.

But… things changed so much for me. Having an author’s platform is nice and a must if I want to be taken seriously, but having this special connection with other writers/bloggers/authors/readers is beyond what I ever thought it would be. Now I write my posts because I care even more about my readers (I know it sounds cheesy, but I really do think so), and so I take my time and not go into this with a lazy approach. Writing may be my passion but this connection is something far more unique.

4. What I’m working on at the moment?

If it’s a question about the blog, I am working on a small feature that may be introduced next month. I still need to work on it a bit, so will see how it goes. More hints will come as soon as we get closer to July πŸ˜‰

My Nominees:

Herminia from aspiringwriter22

Tony from The Blog Of Tony Burgess

Erika from Rickus Bookshelf

Heena from Heena Rathore P.

The date that I am going to set is two weeks from now, which will be July 6th! I hope that everyone I tagged will participate, though please don’t feel obligated to.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀
