My Questions to You.


  1. If you could meet any fictional character from literature which one would it be and why? Josephine “Jo” Marsh of “Little Women” – I so enjoyed the story of “Little Women” and her character because of her imagination for creating stories, as well as her strength to become a woman who could write a novel.  I also appreciated the idea of her not wanting to settle down and marry until she pursued her dream.  
  2. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you choose, if anything? To be completely honest, I truly wish I was a better poet.
  3. Do you prefer Romance in your comedy or Comedy in your Romance, or should the two stays wide apart? Are we speaking in real life or movies?  Either way, I think I would prefer comedy in romance. 
  4. You are invited to a fancy dress party, What do you decide to go dressed as? Well, if it’s a fancy dress party and not a costume party, I think I would show up as myself.  Sound okay?
  5. What have you recently learned that you wish you’d known a lot earlier? I wouldn’t say it’s that recent, but I wish I learned how time-consuming these awards were.  LOL!  They take away from what I really want to do… Read and write. 

Three (3) Things About Myself:

  1. I am more socially equipped to handle and chat with people here, than in my personal life.
  2. I obviously procrastinate when it comes to responding to awards.  LOL!
  3. I’m an ex-smoker, but I turned to vape  3+ years ago.  I seriously loathe the smell of smoke and my roommate chain smokes.  That is another reason why I stay in my bedroom a lot.

My Nominations Are:

 The Haunted Wordsmith

King Ben’s Grandma

The Eclectic Contrarian

 Chelsea Owens

Short Prose Fiction

Bee Halton


Grounding Growth


Cyranny’s Cove


My Five (5) Questions Are:

  1. Do you collect something, if so, what?
  2. Other than writing, do you have any other hobbies or activities that you enjoy?
  3. What is your most embarrassing moment in public?
  4. If you had your choice of sleeping on a bed of nails or eating chocolate covered ants, which would you choose, and why?
  5. What is your worse pet-peeve?


To be honest, I seriously don’t have a favorite post of mine to share.  Sorry, folks.  I leave that all up to you!  (Sneaky, aren’t I?)


There is no time limit or pressure to accept the nomination if you don’t want.  However, I hope you do.  I look forward to your answers to the following questions and love to learn three things about you!  (Ha!  No pressure at all)  LOL! 😂 






  1. Thank you! As I have been nominated nearly a dozen times in the last two months, I do hope you understand if I just answer your questions here…
    1. I guess one could say I collect digital files lol. I used to collect Venetian masks and music boxes but that was a life before unemployment.
    2. I am an avid hiker. I also enjoy painting (not good at it), baking, gardening, and reading (obviously).
    3. I don’t really get embarrassed in public – I just don’t care what others think in that way.
    4. Chocolate ants…I’ve eaten worse.
    5. I dislike people who think they know it all (they are the ones who usually prove that a little bit of knowledge is a very dangerous thing).

  2. Loved your weird question. I’d say I’d sleep on a bed of nails, but it would be the Flowee spiky mat, which is really a sensory-style mat But its Dutch name literally translates to “ nail mat” too.

  3. Thanks, Beckie! I get a bit behind on my reading, so I appreciate that you told me you’d named me. 🙂

    I also enjoyed learning more about you. I, too, wanted to be a better poet. I started writing poetry as an adult when I started my blog, and have improved in confidence and ability since! Read my post about poetry (, don’t feel discouraged by my snarky tone, and write, write, write!

    Enter other bloggers’ prompts, look at what poets do and try their style, try different forms, etc. Plus, keeping in mind that my preferred flavor of poems is different than others, I’m always willing to give you specific feedback. (

    Happy poeming! 😉
