I'm happy to announce that I recently received the "Versatile Blogger Award" from Karoline at "As a Teen Writer." Thank you, Karoline! :D
Unlike some other awards, all I have to do for this one is accept it and pass it on to a few of my favorite bloggers. I will pass it on to . . .
My parents at "Sushi and Pizza."
My brother at "I Don't Eat My Drumsticks."
nevillegirl at "Musings From Neville's Navel."
Miriam Joy at "Miriam Joy Writes."
Bethany at "Rainbows and Penguins."
seventytwofishes at "Seventy-Two Fishes."
It seems as if a bunch of my favorite bloggers have quit blogging. :/ What a shame. (Carla and Cici, if you're reading this, please keep blogging)!
As you can see from the title, I'm looking for a critique partner. For those of you who don't know what a critique partner is, I will explain.
A critique partner is a writer you can depend on to help you with your writing (whether it be books, short stories, poetry, etc.). You can count on them to be honest, kind, fair, and invested in your work. If you happen to find a great critique partner, you will become theirs and, therefore, will have to do your best to be honest, kind, fair, and invested in their work. You and your critique partner critique each other's work and help each other to perfect your writing abilities.
So . . . any takers? Please leave a comment if you're interested! :D

The Versatile Blogger Award and a Search For a Critique Partner
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
