Here is my nomination post for the Sunshine Blogger Award.
The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given to creative, positive and inspiring bloggers ❤
Thanks to Lorraine Ambers for the nomination, and I hope I’m doing this right~ LoL😁
Here are my answers!
Why did you start blogging?
When I decided to seriously pursue my dream of becoming an author, I started reading so much practical and applicable advice– and this advice transformed my writing.
As a lover of “the journey,” I wanted to share with other writers this journey of learning the art of fiction and storytelling 😊
Tell me your favorite quote to live by.
I live by this quote… in a way. I don’t even know who wrote or said it, but here goes:
Though my mother told me it was only a toy, I could not forgive the silence of the teddy bear.
I “live by” this quote because it shows me just how much magic, humor, and emotion you can inject into one simple sentence.
Best book you’ve read this year?
Non-fiction: Definitely The Radium Girls by Kate Moore.
Fiction: Atlanta Burns by Chuck Wendig. I’m going through a Wendig phase 😉
Name three things you do well.
I’d like to think that (1)writing is one of them! 😄
I’m also great at (2)sticking with things until I learn them, and (3)making Puerto Rican stewed beans 😊
How do you relax?
Lately I’ve been enjoying baths and chilling with a copy of Writer’s Digest. Oh, or binge-watching Buffy or Charmed 😘
What is your favorite movie?
Tank Girl. It is absolutely ridiculous and dystopian and deliciously 90s.
I love cheesy movies. Mystery Men and Guardians of the Galaxy come to mind too.
Tell me a little bit about your home town.
Part of my childhood was in Puerto Rico, but I was too young to remember much.
Then we moved to a small town in Florida that had lots of poverty and a growing pill problem. The kind of town that sinks its teeth into you and pulls you down like quicksand. I sometimes gather inspiration for my writing from its gritty sadness.
(I moved away asap, at age 17.)
If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
I would have to say a giraffe. They are strange and graceful, and have beautiful eyelashes 😉 I like that mix of strange and beautiful!
What quality do you admire most?
Strong values unattached to any religion. I love when a person is honest, hard-working, and compassionate, just because they want to be 😌
What’s your favorite hobby?
Right now I’m into bellydancing. World Dance New York has some really fun, easy, and awesome bellydance workouts and instructional videos ✌❤
