Hello there inmates!

I hope you’re all having a fine day! I know I said this was going to be last night, but it seems that I either fell asleep or simply forgot. Apologies for that! I’ve finally got around to one of the awards that I’ve been nominated for recently. This time it is something known as the “Sunshine award”. A truly suitable award name for this time of year, since it’s beginning to warm up here in the UK. In my friend Becky’s words, this award is “passed on by bloggers to fellow bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. How very uplifting!

I was nominated for this award by my good friend Becky over at Creativity is Key! It’s not the first time Becky has nominated me for an award and for that, I am very grateful. So yes, once again Becky, thank you very much for considering me again. It means a lot!

Now this award, so far as i can tell, is very similar to the Liebster award in terms of rules. The only major differences that I can see are the name and the fact there is no notified number of people you must nominate. Anyway, allow me to be more specific.

The rules for the Sunshine award as follows:

1. Display the award certificate on your website.
2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award.
3. Answer the 10 questions given to you.
4. Present the award to deserving bloggers.
5. List 10 questions for them to answer.
6. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post.

Right! So now I must answer the questions that Becky gave me. Here goes!

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in a number of things. I take inspiration from music, books, video games and anime. Ideas just sort of “poof” into existence as i watch/listen to these things. I can’t really explain it. I occasionally get rather bizarre ideas when I’m sat gazing out of the window. Inspiration is mysterious like that i think.
Do you have a particular audience in mind when you write?
Not at all, to be honest. If someone enjoys what I write then great. If not, then fair enough.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I’m not sure i really remember. I think I wanted to be a video game designer or otherwise work in video gaming.
Why/When did you start your blog?
I believe it was either October or November last year. I started it as a kind of gamble I suppose, I simply wanted to know if anyone would enjoy my sort of work.
Who is your favorite writer or poet?
It’s got to be HP Lovecraft, without a doubt. Such an inspiration, in writing terms at least.
Do you ever get writers block? What do you do about it?
Of course, who doesn’t? I quite often just sort of wait it out, I’m not too knowledgeable of writing block techniques.
Are you currently in love?
Most definitely! I’m in love with my wonderful girlfriend Lee!
Is there a certain place that you prefer to write?
I will almost always write in my own bedroom. It’s something of a sanctum for me.
Do you do anything else creative?
Well, I do attempt to draw occasionally. The ideas for my drawings often come with the ideas for my writing. I’m not really very good at it though.
What was the last thing that made you think “wow…”?
I think I saw a random animal picture on Facebook. Can’t really remember what it was, but I remember it being rather exotic.

I hope those answers are satisfactory! Now I must nominate fellow bloggers for this award. According to the rules, there is no designated number of people i must nominate. Therefore, I’m just going to nominate 5 bloggers. It seems like a nice, simple number.

There we are! Five extremely deserving nominees. Be sure to check all of them out. Now i must attempt to come up with ten questions for my nominees to answer. Here goes!

1. Do you post your writing/work anywhere else?

2. Do you listen to music while you write?

3. What sort of music?

4. What piece of writing/work are you most proud of?

5. Who is your favorite author?

6. What inspires your writing/work?

7. What is your favorite color?

8. How do you deal with writers block?

9. What would be your favorite thing to drink while writing?

10. Describe yourself in 3 words.

So there you have it. Hope those questions are interesting enough for you. So that’s my response post to the Sunshine award. Thank you once again Becky for nominating me. Be sure to check her blog and those of my nominees as well. You shan’t be disappointed!
