Beckie‘s 11 Questions:
1. Do you search for difficult words in your writing? like I do. I have to search for meaning.
Sometimes the prompts that I follow are words that I am not familiar with so I look them up. But when I write I use words that I know and am comfortable with. Being too verbose is not my style of writing.
2. What do you prefer tea or coffee? For any specific flavor, please mention the same.
I prefer coffee over tea any day. I like all the flavors that come unsweetened. Like French vanilla, Hazelnut, Caramel in coffee. And though I love coffee, I cannot have it more than twice a day. So if I want something in the evening, I love earl grey tea.
3. Most of the time, I am found writing while walking to and fro in my room, on my phone’s notepad. Do you like writing on phones or tablets or laptops?
I love blogging from my phone or iPad. It’s the easiest thing to just pick up the phone, open the app and write the ideas swirling in my mind. I got a new laptop but I have not gotten into the habit of blogging on it. Maybe one day!
4. Where would you like to live, if not the current country?
I am happy in my current country. I do like to go on vacation to other places, but love living where I was born.
5. How many books do you have in your own library?
Like most people, I have downsized my book collection a lot. It’s not easy to lug around books especially if you move homes. So when I moved into my own home, I sold/ gave away most of my books that I had already read a few times. I still have my classic book collection and all-time favorites. So maybe about a couple of hundred books.
6. Have you participated in any protests for any social cause? Which one and why?
In my younger day I did but nothing as an adult. In school, we did protest against the infringement of human rights.
7. A motivating line of your own, if this was an award given to you on stage.
Thank you so much for this honor. If I can do it so can you. It only needs hard work!
8. What genre do you prefer in movies?
As life is too serious these days, I prefer lighthearted comedies, superhero movies or documentaries.
9. Are you a bathroom singer?
Nopes. No singer of any sort. I like to whistle along with my favorite songs while walking and listing to my playlist.
10. How do you spend your Sunday?
Relaxing. But since my husband likes to socialize, we usually visit friends and family. I like the weekdays better as I can plan my day according to my own wishes.
11. Do you like watching TV? What do you prefer watching?
I really don’t have time to watch tv anymore because between blogging, walking and meeting my family and friends, there isn’t enough time left. If there is some new show on Netflix, I do catch it but only if I have spare time on my hands.
