Versatile Blogger Award

I must start by thanking both Eclipse and Seabell for nominating me for this award. I always tell myself that I write for my sake only, but it is at times like this that I confess it’s good to be appreciated.  Just being part of being human I guess – we’re social animals after all. What I can say for sure is that the feeling is doubled when the award comes from others you respect so highly.  And that in a nutshell is the root cause of much of our motivation- the wish to please parents, lovers, children,etc…but I have found that so long as you know who you are spending so much time trying to please, and they deserve such attention, then a potential neurosis is transformed into a force for good.

And now to deconstruct myself a little more and in accordance with the rules of this award, here are ten things you don’t know about me:
1. I am 32 years old
2. I was born in south London
3. I am writing this sitting in the bath (too much information, probably)
4. My favorite author is Ray Bradbury
5. My favorite song is Heroes, by David Bowie
6. My favorite film is Contact starring Jodie Foster, or maybe The Never Ending Story…after all you can’t really beat a story that never ends, can you?
7. I first started writing stories as a 7 year old, when I largely copied a ‘choose your own adventure story’ , showed it to my mum proudly and pretended it was mine! I like to think I’ve got a little more original since then.
8. When I first went to school the teachers told me I was left handed. My mum disagreed and battle commenced. She won, but to this day I’m not completely sure which hand to hold the fork in, or which way round to put in a belt.
9. I started this blog at the suggestion of a writing tutor, and have barely completed an assignment since.
10. I am currently writing a Zen Self-Help book called The Zen Doctor. See upcoming posts for imminent details!

Last but certainly not least I nominate Another Man’s Dream for this award.
