I got a lovely surprise in receiving the Sunshine Blogger Award. This award is given to creative, positive and inspiring bloggers.
So, I want to give a super shoutout to the awesome Lorraine Ambers, who is a great writer and friend. Thank you!! Make sure to visit her blog, it’s full of really helpful and interesting posts.
It is always wonderful to know that there are people out there who actually enjoy what I write. Every follow, every like, every comment is truly appreciated.
So, let’s get to it! These are the questions Lorraine gave me.
Why did you start blogging?
The short answer was to help people. I was on an art community website called deviantArt and was asked a writing question. My answer turned out to be quite long so I turned it into a tutorial post.
Several posts later and a lot of positive feedback and questions, I decided I wanted to put all my tutorials, tips and tricks in one place. Hence this blog was born.
Tell me your favourite quote to live by
“A writer is a split personality, putting their other-selves down on paper to avoid the asylum.” ~Unknown
I feel this really captures how I feel as a writer :p
Best book you’ve read this year?
It was a re-read (I re-read a lot of books I love). It was The Invisible Ring by Anne Bishop.
I love all of Anne Bishop’s books, and this was no exception.
Name three things you do well
- Write (ego much? :D)
- Shoot arrows
How do you relax?
Relax? What’s that??
I guess I have less manic moments, usually when I’m reading or watching stand-up comedy or movies. Otherwise, I’m just always moving.
What is your favourite movie?
I hate this question because it suggests I have one! lol
The two movies I can watch over and over and are good at de-stressing me, so I guess they would be considered favourites, are Tangled and Jumping Jack Flash.
I have a lot of “favourites” though and with each year, and more movies coming out, that list grows.
Tell me a little bit about your hometown.
When I was growing up, my hometown lived up to its name as a shire. However, over the years it has lost much of its greenery and been built on.
Last year, they built on the fields behind my parents’ house, where I grew up. After that, it stopped feeling like home. I consider it a “grey” place now.
If you could be any animal what would it be and why?
An octopus because they are super smart, ingenious at times and have some great defence abilities 😀
They are also super cute… am I the only one who thinks that?
What quality do you admire most?
I think if people can be more understanding of each other, we’d all do better. Many problems are often caused by a simple lack of understanding.
What’s your favourite hobby?
It has been and always will be something I love.
And now the people I decided to nominate:
