Sunshine Award

20140423-142131.jpg

This award is passed on by bloggers to fellow bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” and this has been awarded to me by the very kind Hafsa Baba, a brilliant blogger who I recommend to anyone, so thank you to him! I really do appreciate it.

The rules for this award are:

Display the Award Certificate on your website
Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
Answer the 10 questions given to you
Present the award to deserving bloggers
List 10 questions for them to answer
Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

Now in regards to the 10 questions that need answering, unfortunately Hafsa Baba didn’t actually post any questions, but nothing to worry about! I will just answer the same questions that I put forward to the bloggers that I present the award to.

1. Where do you find inspiration?
It depends, sometimes it just comes to me, something that happens during the day, something I do, see or feel. When I’m struggling for an idea I tend to just have a look on here at other blogs and it’s not long before I’ve found something to write about.

2. Do you have a particular audience in mind when you write?
I think what makes my writing easy to do, is that whoever I’m writing about (if it’s not myself of course) I know they won’t be reading it. Obviously depending on what it is I’m writing too, if it’s a seductive or dark piece then it’s aimed at adults.

3. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher. I know it’s not as exciting as an astronaut or a singer or a firefighter…or even a writer or poet…but I always wanted to teach primary school children. I’d make my sisters and friends pretend they were pupils in my class and I’d be the teacher until they got bored of sitting still.

4. When/Why did you start your blog?
I only started mine at the start of this year, in January, with the hopes of just putting my things out there which I’d never done before, and it was a brilliant idea.

5. Who is your favourite writer/poet?
If we disregard the obvious William Shakespeare (my answer to everything!) I would say Charles Bukowski. I’ve only been aware of him for a couple of years. My boyfriend also loves him and bought me Ham on Rye to introduce him to me, and I couldn’t put it down. His style of writing in all his books and poetry is so fresh and real. I love it.

6. Do you ever get writers block? What do you do about it?
Quite often, I usually spend some time just thinking, a lot of my work is based on various moments and emotions in my own life, as I think I’ll never run out of ideas that way. If I really am stuck, just perusing other blogs will help.

7. Are you currently in love?
Very much so.

8. Is there a certain place that you prefer to write?
I can write anywhere, which I think is important. Inspiration can hit anywhere, so being able to write anywhere is a plus.

9. Do you do anything else creative?
I love to draw and paint, the pictures I post with some of my poetry are things that I’ve done.

10. What was the last thing that made you think “wow…”
It was an erotic poem written by one of the bloggers I’ve given this award to (I’m sure you can guess which one she is).

So here are the bloggers that I have chosen to give this award to. All of them have, in my opinion, been inspirational or positive or push the boundaries and write without fear. Give all of their blogs a look. And following them are the questions they are to answer.

Osharlequin

Sensual Desires

Retirement Legs

Paper Moments & Broken Lines

50 Shades of Me

(A couple of these bloggers don’t accept awards or re-post them, but regardless of this, I feel that these 5 are the people that inspire my the most and have a positive effect on the “blogosphere”. I want them to know this and I recommend all of them very highly)

1. Where do you find inspiration?

3. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
