Crack the bubbly……Fez
Okay…technically speaking, I’m breaking a few rules here on follower numbers but to quote Lady Fury who went and nominated herself for this award yesterday…..
Some rules are made to be broken
It is an absolute pleasure to receive an award and an even bigger one to pass it on. Puhew, it takes care of the next two blogs for a start! So, what are the rules? Well, display the logo …DUH, obvi to quote Fury again and link to the blogger who nominated me. That is the lovely Harliqueen,
Mishka Jenkins. Mishka has a fabulous blog, not just sharing her journey to publication but writing processes and she’s well worth checking out.
Mishka set ten questions for me and the hamsters to answer. We then need to set a different ten for those we nominate. So, here goes…
1. Who is your favourite author and why?
Right? Next question please……. Okay.. This is difficult I mean the hamsters probably like Rabbie cos he wrote a poem about a mouse- -close–or maybe even Steinbeck…of Mice and Men ….close again. I love so many authors, but probably one I read and read again is James M Cain. Why? Cos I love the way he wrote women.
but tackle taboos.
2. Do you have a favourite type of character?
3. Is there a part of writing that you struggle with and want to improve?
All of it quite frankly.
4. Apart from writing, what are you most passionate about?
5. Favourite colour?
At the risk of sounding chronic, all colour is beautiful. Being gothy in some respects, probably black.
6. Are you currently working on anything? e.g. Novel, novella, short story, poem, etc.
I’m editing one just completed manuscript about a very sumexy Viking and half way through writing my second London Jewel Thieves book, Splendor. The hamsters are just busy on the wheel. Like I am looking at muses..
7. Do you remember your favourite childhood book?
Tough choice here…. .I can’t make it.
8. Have you ever cried over a book? If so, which one?
That shit about how the dying swallow stands by him. And, let’s not even go there re how traumatized I was trying to read this stuff in my best ooncle Paul Scofield…your mother cannot be with you any more Bambi bloody accent. To a kid of three?
The hamsters now….they cry all the time.
9. Your favourite song of the moment?
Me? Right now? I’ve been loving listening to Vogel Im Kafig. Oh not a song I know but nicely inspiring
10. Is there anything you do particularly to get inspiration for writing?
Think of the deadline.
Okay… now we have the hamsters questions….. for their nominees… Lady Fury better be holding her breath here after what she did yesterday, I tell you.
1 Which fictional character would you most fancy having a fling with and why?
2 You’ve been shipwrecked on a desert island, what book can’t you be without?
