QUESTIONS and ANSWERS:
What made you start blogging?
I realized that the more I made myself write, the more creative I became, the more certain parts of my brain would spontaneously reveal themselves. So I wanted something that would motivate me to write consistently.
Where do you get ideas for your blog posts?
Since half of my posts are news related opinion pieces, the news is my inspiration. Sometimes it is what I see in it that makes me want to write about it. Sometimes it is the behavior of people around me that makes me want to write and I use news pieces to support my thoughts.
The other half of my posts are creative writing pieces, which are inspired by various writing prompts.
What’s the best advice anyone ever gave you?
It will sound jaded, but the best advice – You can only truly count on yourself. And if you want something done, do it yourself. While I do have a few people I rely on every now and again, these pieces of advice saved a lot of my sanity.
If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?
resourceful, committed, silly (in a good way)
What is your favorite animal?
Dogs are awesome. Tigers are majestic. But all animals are great.
What do you wish to accomplish in 2018?
Keep blogging. Face certain challenges in my life and come out happy on the other side.
Are people outside the blogging community aware of your blog? i.e. family,friends
What is your favorite dish to cook?
It depends if I cook it by myself or with someone else. And there are different answers depending on how much time I have.
How did you choose the title of your blog?
I am often told that I need to plan further ahead than I do. I disagree. We are given today. Yesterday no longer matters. We might not be alive tomorrow, so why worry. One day at a time…
Summer or winter?
Both have their pros and cons. Right now I will say summer. Ask me next year. It might change.
What made you smile today?
These awards. And some comments I received from other bloggers.
