Hearing that I’ve been nominated for starlight blogger award is a beautiful surprise. Lately, I’ve not been accepting some awards, thinking that they’re for new bloggers but this one comes from a very diligent blogger Prakash Hegade and the fact that he is among those readers of my blog who have been here with me from the beginning of my writing journey made me feel that I need to accept this kind gesture of him.
Do check his book Run – The Secret Destination. Once, you’ll finish reading his book, you’ll find yourself looking at life with a whole new perspective.
Here are my answers to his three questions
Share the link of your first blog post you made on your blog?
Hmm.. it’s tough, actually before writing here on WordPress, I started with some writing forums. I posted some of my posts there then I shared them here. Once, joining here on WordPress, I was lucky that I discovered a blog named the writers’ hub with weekly hub challenges which were intended to motivate and help bloggers in writing.
I wrote these six words stories for the hub challenge.
Thrice defeated; still charged, I’m optimistic.
Hospital sounds haunt me, she’s gone.
Associate a meaning and describe black and white?
I don’t believe that things in life needed to be black and white. There are lots of colors between them, why not enjoy little bit ambiguity? 🙂
If you were to invent something, what would be it?
A medicine, people would take in the morning which would force them to keep a smile on their face throughout the day but ignore it what I’ve written for I believe it is very much in our own control 🙂
That reminds me of a Mathematics teacher in our ninth grade, who was stern in her appearance and responded to our queries quite rudely. Gradually, students stopped asking her questions, she noticed that change and as she was young, we took liberty and discussed our issue with her. Surprisingly, she readily accepted that problem in her attitude and from the next day, I saw a smile on her face.
She’s still teaching in same school and last week when I met her after some more than ten years, she welcomed me with a great big smile on her face 🙂
Keeping the beautiful gesture showed by Prakash Hegade in mind, I’m also including three of my nominees for this award here.
Deb author of the blog ONCE UPON A HOT FLASH believes in showing gratitude for every blessing in her life.
A positive attitude with an abundance of gratitude and a laugh at menopause is her tagline. She has taught me to remain hopeful in life.
Ancient Skies believes in compassion and love for nature.He’s among those readers who have been here from the day one of my writing journey. He writes that he’s always learning and growing, I like his humble attitude.
I’m so glad to discover Nashrah author of the blog PAINTED IN WORDS. I like her photography and reading her posts is always a refreshing experience for me.
