Liester Blog Award…

Vikki from The View Outside kindly nominated me for this award. Thank you Vikki. Now to the nitty gritty…

What keeps you writing when you have writer’s block?
OK I’ll cringe and whisper it…I don’t get writers block. If anything I have to fight off my muse who crowds my mind with stories.

Most writers have a literary counterpart—a character from their stories who reflects themselves. Tell us about yours.
There are elements of me in my stories – my likes and dislikes and many ‘what if’s.

What are your passions?
My writing, learning more of the art, my writers circle and time with my kids.

You’ve had a fight with your significant other and you want to fix things.
Cozy up with a large bottle of wine, a great movie and popcorn.

What’s one injustice you see in the world that you would fix in a story?
I actually wrote a novel – Life in Slake Patch – which had women ruling the world and being respected.

If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?
To have my family from England and my life in Canada merge.

What’s important to you at this point in time?
Cultivating a writing community

Who is your hero/heroine?
I have many but a few are favoured – my father, Stephen King and Steve Irwin.

Do you make it a habit of telling others what you thought of their work, even if your experience wasn’t good?
I adhere to my writers circle mandate – use constructive critque and be respectful.

What is good will?
Kindness and friendiness to those around you.

What would it take for you to make friends with an old enemy?
Enemy is too strong a word. I have intensively disliked a couple of people but as time passed I found myself feeling sorry for them and let go of the ‘hold’ they had on my emotions.

I nominate –

Gerri Bowen    Linda Pedley (wildhorse)   Suzi Burkett (Sog’s Blog)

  1. Wow Mandy, thank you for the nomination! No writer’s block, but I suffer from frozen brain if there are great stresses in my life. 🙂 For me as well, being outdoors, walking or pulling weeds helps me recover and get the ideas flowing.
