Creakingbones has nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you :)
As I understand it, there are three main requirements for recipients and they are:
1 Answer questions posed by their nominator.
2 Nominate another group of bloggers you deem to be worthy of the award.
3 Pose a number of questions for the fresh bunch of nominees to answer.
So here goes answering the questions posed to me:
Q: How long have you been blogging and why do you blog?
My first blog post was around October 2014. I started blogging to create an online presence with which to market a novel I am writing. However now I blog simply because I enjoy it and the other bloggers I’ve met.
Q. Are you an inquisitive person?
Yes. Most things fascinate me.
Q. Do you collect ‘friends’ on Facebook?
Tough question. To begin with I did. Now I don’t really.
Q. What is your preference in music, e.g., country, hip hop, popular or classical etc?
I have no real preference. I simply enjoy music that reflects my mood at any given time. Hence I can at one moment really enjoy Adagio in G Minor by Albinoni (a piece of classical music I first heard on Space 1999), then go through an 80s and 90s pop music moment, followed by a bit of 50s and 60s rock, and finish off with some Lady Gaga or Bruno Mars. I also tend to be like that with art. On the very odd occasions that I get my guitar out I am more likely to play a ballad. However my guitar-playing is so bad that this does not happen very often.
Q: What is your favourite movie and your favourite book?
I’m not really a person who has particular favourites. I love adventure movies and science fiction, but I think the movie that has had the deepest impact upon me has been Big Fish. It is the one film that causes me to cry each time I watch it, and yet it is full of funny and philosophical moments too. As for my favourite novel, I would have to say either Lord of the Rings or To Kill a Mockingbird.
Q: What has been your favourite road trip?
I’ve really only been on three long multiday car dives. The first was from Sydney to Fraser Island (world’s largest sand island in Queensland and back). The second was around Britain. The third was from Sydney to Swan Hill and back. I loved all three for different reasons.
I guess I must nominate some other bloggers that I know. You are not obliged to participate, but hopefully it will be fun if you do. And if you already have the Liebster award then just do as you se fit. :)

Now for some questions (mwhahahahahahaha)
- If you could decorate your home in any style possible and cost was no barrier, how would you do so and what “look” would you hope to achieve?
- If you could be any famous person in history, who would you be and why?
- What is your favourite talent (not necessarily your best) and why?
- What qualities do you most admire in other people and why?
- If horror movie monsters were real, what monster would you most hate to have in your neighbourhood and why?
- When you hear terms such as “creative” and “artistic” what thoughts and feelings come to mind?
- What, in your opinion, is the most important lesson to teach the children of the world?
- If you could do a cameo on any tv show past or present, which one would it be and what would your character be like?
Once again, I would love to see these nominees take it up but you are obviously free to do as you wish. :)
