Okay so my quill pen is actually lilac but the wonderful Rhonda has deemed me worthy of an upgrade, many people knock the internet but I cannot thank it enough for allowing me to get to know wonderful people I never would have met otherwise and this special lady is right up there with the best and in a few weeks if all goes to plan I shall get to meet her in person and I cannot wait. You can check out Rhonda’s answer here.
The rules for this award:
If you choose to accept, are to paste the logo of this award on the top of your post. Thank the person who nominated you. Answer the questions below. Nominate five or more people, list them and let them know that they have been nominated.
1- Do you prefer rhyming or non-rhyming poetry?
I am easy when it comes to reading poetry and enjoy both if I am writing it then non rhyming I feel the flow of the words is more important to me than rhyming
2- What’s your favorite Shakespeare Play?
A Midsummer Nights Dream, fairies and humour what more could a girl want
3- Who is your favourite author?
Hmmm actually a tough one as I love so many different genres but I guess overall I have to go with Jane Austen
4- Name three people who you greatly admire.
Hmmm not as easy as it seems, do they have to be alive? Am saying not for my answers
1. My great grandad who went off to fight in the first world war for a country that had treated him like a second class citizen just to try to provide a better life for his family (okay it didn’t work out that way but the fact he went still changed our family forever)
2. Elizabeth I, a strong woman that took no bull and refused to be forced into marriage in order to secure her reign, okay she had her bad side but don’t we all
3. Boudicca, the woman who inspired in part my novel, strong, brave in the face of certain defeat and unwilling to surrender to save herself.
5- What’s your favourite album ever?
Hmmm has to be…Rio by Duran Duran I can’t listen to it without smiling, partly because the music is still so good and partly because of all those dreams it inspied in a young girl
6- Which primary color do you most dislike?
Not sure I really dislike any of them but maybe blue because as a child I was always dressed in blue with my two sisters stood either side of me in pink
7- Name a song or a poem that makes you feel emotional.
There are so many for so many different reasons, but one that sticks out is The Cars – Drive even to this day I canno hear it without seeing those Live Aid images, for those who know what I mean I apologise for the clips but for those who are too young to remember I dare you to watch it all the way through without a tear.
So on with the nominations
