It seems each passing day brings something to this mere blogger that I am. This is me saying that I was, once again, nominated for the Liebster. This time, it was all thanks to a great follower (whom I also consider as a long-distance friend), Charlotte. Before I start, I have one question: when’s the ceremony and it is equally distributed? I don’t want to be part of something that might have to live through the Oscar debacle. End of rant.
So, here are Charlotte’s questions
- What is your favourite thing about yourself? (No dodging this question, I want some serious self appreciation!)
- What is your favourite book and why?
- Who is your biggest inspiration? How do they inspire you?
- Can you tell us all about a moment that made you really proud, or when you took a huge leap of faith?
- What is the biggest adventure you have ever been on and why?
- If you could have written any book that has already been written, which one and why?
- If you could have any dream job that is not your own, what would it be?
- Would you rather live in a world with unlimited money, or a world where Pokemon are real?
- If you lived in Middle Earth, would you choose to be an elf, wizard, hobbit, human or dwarf?
- What house would you be if you attended Hogwarts and why? Take an online test if you’re not sure!
- Who is your favourite character from any book, film or TV show and why?
And here are my answers.
- Having a low self-esteem (and an even lower cholesterol level…), I’m not my number one fan, in general. But, I sometimes enjoy the fact that I’m a bookworm (I could read anything I lay my hands on, from a book to a panel on the side of a road, and everything in-between) and that I make people laugh.
- Hmm. That question is like asking a parent who their favourite child is. But I enjoyed reading “The Stranger”, for the relationship between a son and a mother, dead or alive.
- Poets and my father. They inspire me by being there when I need to have a boost of any kind (emotionally or creatively) and by making me want more out of my mere self and out of anyone.
- My proudest moment so far was when I decided to take a month off and fully focus on my writing. That was the spark I needed to finish my first novel, currently in editing.
- Same as last question. It was an adventure because I am not a world-class organizer and I decided to play it by ear. Not an easy thing when you are tone-deaf. (Laughter? No? Oh, well…)
- War and Peace. I would have made it shorter.
- Writer (It is not my job, at the moment). For the thrill of spending time with “real” people.
- Unlimited money! Even if that might bring forth undesired relations and sudden additions to the family, like a really distant relative from a place I never visited.
- I’d say wizard, simply for the thrill of saying “Thou shall not cry!”
- If I were to attend Hogwarts, I would be riffing doors. (rim shot?)
- My favourite character is Don Vito Corleone. That.Is.All.
I must now nominate people and come up with a series of questions. Can this be any easier? I don’t think so. But it has to be done, nonetheless.
So here are my questions
- If you received a transport ticket (plane, train, car, bus) for any destination in the world. where would you go?
- Who would you spend time with, if you were given the chance?
- How important is social media in your writing adventure?
- Music or silence, when writing or reading?
- Why did you become a writer?
And here are my nominations
- Brianna da Silva
- Tarquin Carlin
- Nicole L’autore
- Rebecca Frohling
- H.K Morrison.
