Britt’s Life Enthusiast Chronicles

This is not a picture of my dog. This is a mixed wolf – half gray wolf and half Husky. Her name is Spirit. She was abused by her owner, but later she was rescued and rehabilitated by a woman named Brenda. Doesn’t Spirit have a sweet face?


wolves inspire me with my writing

The fun-loving, energetic, and talented Britt Skrabanek is an indie author who has recently made a move to Portland, Oregon. While Britt is unpacking her bags, I am making myself at home on her blog.

Please come on by and read about one of my greatest passions. I’ll be waiting for you!

Versatile Blog Award!

Thanks to the loveable writers over at Limebird Writers I have been  nominated for the Versatile Blog Award!

Now I get to pass it on! But first I have to follow some rules. I love rules. So, I am right in my element here.

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post. Yup. See above.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.  Yup. See below.

3. Pass this award along to 15 blogs you enjoy reading. Yup. See farther below.

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award. Yup. Can’t you hear all the hoots and hollers?

Okay, 7 things about myself:

I am left-handed.

My hero is Walt Disney.

I used to own two cats named Garlic and Kahlua.

I can name all the United States Presidents by heart–in sequential order.

My favorite drink is a Harpoon IPA.

I can make a mean dessert.

I collect bird feathers.

     Now for the passing on of the award:

  1. A great self-published author (and a wonderful human being). Al is a master in the social media arena and routinely goes out of his way to help other writers market their work.
  2. As a writing coach and a facilitator of creative writing programs for children, I refer to this site regularly. Great info here.
  3. This title says it all! If you love dogs, this is a must-visit!
  4. Josh Alexander started Wolf Defender to “draw awareness to all of the unjust actions that are being taken against wolves in the United States [and] to hopefully educate the willing on the true nature of these great animals.” He had me at Wolf Defender.

And this might seem unfair because number 5 is for Josh Alexander again but regarding his amazing photography on nature and wildlife.


6. Professional writers from my home state of New Hampshire talk about the craft and business of writing.

7.  “Thoughts on life from a simple traveller – no more, no less.”

8. A travelogue blogged and penned about an RV trip down US Route 1.

9. Cyranette stimulates writers through a daily question, beginning sentence, beginning paragraph, prompt, and word-of-the-day.

10. “Here you’ll find writing and publishing tips, thoughts on the philosophy of writing, and weekly prompts supported by a community of both new and seasoned writers.”

11. A journalist from Savannah, Georgia who also writes fiction.

12. I just really love Pat’s blog filled with photos and notes on her RV travels. She has a dog, too, and I’m a sucker for dogs (as we know from #3 in this list).

13. A writer and a photographer who loves wolves as much as I do.

14. A fun blending of flash fiction, short stories, essays about the craft of writing, and interviews.

15. If you love Nancy Drew, you must check out this website.
