  1. sunshine-blogger-award-2

Thank you so much to all three of them. They’re amazing. Don’t forget to pay them a visit and send some love. 

Now, The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you. <A beautiful Gesture>
  • Answer the questions from the person who has nominated you. < Not a necessary task>
  • Nominate some other bloggers for this award. < A must activity>
  • Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you have nominated. <Believe me it is very exciting>

Q&A

by Light at the end of the Tunnel

How do you see your blog?

It’s a small part on internet to share love and kindness and happiness.(and of course food)

Which genre are you most attracted with?

There isn’t just one, weather that’s blog or books. Though in books I find suspense and thriller more appealing and in blogs food, photography, artwork and travel blogs attract me more. 

What are the ambitions, being a writer?

Of course to publish a book someday, could be cook book or suspense thriller or cheesy romantic novel. Let’s see where life takes me

What can be the reason, according to you, of writer’s attraction towards coffee?

Ok, this might be too long answer. Writing is a work of art and you can’t force art. It just comes to you weather you’re sitting in a final exam of your degree course or at 3 am in the morning. Now it’s a fact that artistic people are night person. Now if you’re a writer and you are inspired at night you need that huge mug of coffee to keep your body up really late at night.
No, I’m just kidding. Writer or not, coffee is just an amazing thing. Who wouldn’t love it.!!

How and why writing can ever soothe a soul?

It’s not writing that soothes a soul it’s letting out the feelings in shape of words or a painting or speech that helps. Plus when you have expressed the feelings and people read and appreciate that and react to it, that’s what makes it soothing. That’s what I think anyway.

by Brewing Words – A reflection

As a blogger or writer, have you ever spent days without writing a single word? How did you bounce back?

Yeah, I have. I still tried to post something at least. If I don’t find words I dig into my photographs and share some of the good ones and share that.  

There is a belief that writers are introverts, have you ever been treated as such when you first introduce yourself to someone? The situation if any.

Yeah, My best friend was in shock when I, her and her boyfriend were hanging out for the first time cause I was having a good nice conversation with him and he said that she told him I won’t say a word at first cause I am bit shy when I first meet people.

Have you found your dreams or is the conundrum of” why,what” still exists?

Yes, I have found few. 

What does friendship mean in your life?

It’s important just as much as other relations in my life. It depends more on the person who I’m friends with then friendship itself. (Does it make sense)

For once in your life, do you want to be someone and live their life, if so who?

umm.. 
Few mins later..
At the moment I don’t wish to be someone else. Still thinking… Can I be 
Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.?
