Now onto Jaya’s questions..
What is your favourite meal, and why?
Hmm, I like lots of different foods from different countries and cultures. If I have to pick one meal I’d probably go with, creamy chicken pasta.
What is a moment in your life you are proud of?
I’m struggling to think of one to be honest, obviously I was proud to become a Dad. I am so proud of Jack and Lily, especially with how everything that’s stacked against them, that they are doing so well.
About 10 years ago I did a short story writing course, which I completed with top marks. I was pretty proud of that.
What is your favourite childhood memory, and why?
It’s not one particular memory, but all the Football (soccer) matches I played in. I really enjoyed playing for a team, which is something I did from the age of 8 through to 25. Before I hung to football boots up, and I haven’t played an “official game” since. It’s something I do really miss.
What is your favourite family tradition?
Erm I don’t think we’ll really have a family tradition as such.
Why do you write?
It is my escape, and always has been. When I write fiction, I lose myself in what I am trying to create. It takes me away from what’s happening in the real world, and there have been times in my life when that was desperately needed.
Though slightly different, writing like this works much the same way. I immerse myself in what I am doing, and it also gives the opportunity to vent my feelings. I tend to bottle things up, and I’m not much of a talker . The written word is how I show my emotions.
My Questions to the nominees
- What was your first job?
- If you could be any other animal other than a human, what would you choose to be?
- What is your favourite genre of music?
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
- If you could choose one blogger to guest post on your blog, who would you choose?
Tom @ The Doubting Thomas Blog, a dad blogging about family life and being a parent. He writes really well, and is currently doing a great “interview with a parent” series off posts that are well worth a look.
Lauren @ Bournemouth Girl is a creative lifestyle blogger with a passion for stationery, who has lots of great posts on bullet journaling. I’m even sort of attempting one, you should check them out if it sounds like something you’d enjoy doing.
Luke @ the cask connoisseur is one of my favourite bloggers at the moment. There are not many young men out there blogging that I’ve seen. So Lukes blog about his passion for beer and whiskey, is really something different. He goes into great detail of the history behind the industry, and is a fascinating blog well worth checking out.
Claire @ Our Favourite Jar has a great blog, I highly recommend checking her different journal prompts posts out. I’ve certainly finding them very helpful, getting me to answer questions I hadn’t thought about, but needed to be answered.
Okay that is all, to be honest I always find it awkward nominating people. I hope these 4 great bloggers don’t mind. Thanks again to Jaya, and don’t forget to make a visit to Nin Chronicles, you really won’t regret it.
