Robin’s Questions:

  1. What’s your favorite song at the moment?

I love music that inspires me and helps my writing flow. I love music that sobs and swells. For me, the song that holds that feeling for me now is Kings and Queens by Ava Max.

2. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

There are so many beautiful and breathtaking places to see in the world. While I often think I would like to visit a big city, like Paris or New York, I think I would prefer to roam the English countryside for the villages that harbor untold stories.

3. What’s your favorite YouTube channel?

I am not a big Youtube user so there are only a few channels I actively watch/listen to. Right now I enjoy the Merry Writer Podcast; it is a great place to be for fun writing-related questions and advice!

4. What’s a talent you have that may not be widely known?

When I think of myself, I do not immediately think of talent. I am good at what I enjoy and do well at what I apply myself to. If that is not a form of talent, what is?

I write, I garden, I cook, I sing, I dance. I do not do exceptionally at the former two, but I enjoy it and that is what matters.

5. What was your favorite subject in school?

I have always enjoyed history and writing. Being homeschooled, however, I always had the joy of studying what I enjoyed.

6. What blog post of yours do you feel is under appreciated?

I am always deeply grateful and honored by the people who enjoy what I write. Since I am being honest, though, I was surprised Ode to True Caramel did not make more mouths water!

7. What are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to seeing three of my poems appear on the printed page of a second anthology coming out soon! It is a pleasure to share pages with writers of honest words and raw emotions and know my experiences and stories are valued by people.

The Original Outstanding Blogger Award recognizes the people who put an outstanding effort into their writing, so I am thrilled to be able to share the love further with all of you.

My ‘What’s’:

  • If applicable, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?

  • What is your favorite bird?
  • What is the most courageous thing you have ever done?

  1. Congratulations! I always love reading and learning a little bit more about the person behind blogs, behind every poem.

    I hope, that 2021 will be a good year for you!
    Achieve everything you want AND roam the English countryside! 🙂 And if you find there untold stories, let them inspire you for new poems! 🙂

  2. Hi Jaya. A well-deserved award, I must say. I love reading your writing. Keep up the good work.

    I also enjoy reading more about fellow bloggers so thank you for sharing your answers to the questions raised. I admire your parents for being able to home-school you – I don’t think mine would have had the patience! 🙂

  4. Congrats on your nomination Jaya, and also on getting three more poems published, that’s amazing!

    I always loved school. I played in the band and was an athlete, and I loved learning, but I was often very bored by what my teachers taught me. The part about home schooling where you got to learn about anything you liked sounds amazing!

  5. Congratulations on the nomination, it’s always great to learn a little more about people. I found your answer to the talent question really interesting because I feel the same way when asked something like that. I’d never call myself talented, but I guess we’re all good at something x

  7. I enjoyed reading your answers! I liked what you said about talent too. Passion seems like a bit part of talent. But it’s more about what you like to do.

    I’m the same with traveling as well. I want to see the big cities, but I also really want to see the country sides. I think traveling the country side would bring more novel stories and memories than the cities lots of people have already seen.

    1. Yes!! I am all about finding the stories other people have not glimpsed or found yet. One way to do that is to go to smaller places.

      Love your thoughts on what makes up talent as well. 🙂 Thanks again for the nomination!

  8. I loved your answer regarding talent. I think that passion beats talent, and that if you are passionate enough about what you do, you can only become better at it. 😊✨ Congratulations on this, Jaya! x
