He also has quite the penchant for prompts and combined with his fun loving nature will ever take on new genres displaying the versatility of his clever mind.
Kristian’s 11 Questions
What is your least favourite genre of books to read?
Do you have a particular favourite book or author?
If yes, please tell me.
No, l don’t have a specific favourite anything, l like to read and will read from a selection of authors.
Do you have a happy place?
Describe it to me.
Nope, afraid not.
Could you spend a week in a shack with no access to phone or computer?
If l had to, and l have done – yes of course.
If you were in that shack what book would you want for company?
Well in truth, if l was in a shack, would l perhaps not be out in the open anyway and if that was the case, then l might be too knackered to read anything. So probably none, l might find more comfort from a pen and paper and then l can jot down ideas to stories.
What one human trait would you like to see eradicated?
Name a place you want to go to but never have been?
Do you prefer reading to writing or vice versa?
Both are my favourites, for me there is not one without the other.
If someone bought you a box set of a TV show or a particular Actors work, what would you want it to be?
Well, a few years back l had nearly 6000 DVDs and they were all catagorised into actors. However, whilst there are many actor’s that l am fond of, l have no real passion for film collecting as much as once [now having sold all but 300 and they are now also going to sale] and so if they asked me what l might want, l would simply request that they didn’t do that and either save their money and just get me a card or a book. Suze has a hellish time buying for me, as l don’t really have any desire for anything.
How does blogging make you feel?
That’s a good question, it’s a vessel for my reflections and memories to be stored and archived within. What l like more about ‘blogging’ in truth is the community aspect.
Is there one particular blog post that you’re really proud of?
No, not really, l write almost like a man possessed or in the very least driven, l don’t rate my writing or indeed my poetry that highly. I write because l love to write. I don’t have any specific post that l could lay my finger on and say ‘That’s the one, that says it all’, because l haven’t written that yet. I suppose l am just glad that people enjoy what l do, and tend to let readers decide what they like over what l may like.
I think that is a question that would be best answered by a poet or a fiction based story teller, whereas my poetry and my writing are either reflective of moments in time or of memory of my actual life. Maybe the answer is that my works are a series of ongoing moments and my story at the time of writing is far from over and/as l still have much of my life to write about.
When l am done, then my autobiography then in collection form, l might say, l find this the best works of me as they reflect who l am.
But it still comes back to what the readerships themselves like and not really me.
Right Ok, a note to my nominees. You are under no obligation to accept the nomination, equally as much the same applies to the questions, if however you wish to answer just the questions, that is also fine. This is just a way of me showing my appreciation to those who l follow and enjoy your blogs.
My nominations are chosen because l like your blog, your style, your writing and because l like what you do, and also a way of saying Hello and give some positive vibes your way. Because we all need that at times.
The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award for bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring – people who spread “sunshine” to the blogging world!
The questions part is the longest part of a nomination for me, l spend time answering the nominators questions, then l spend time of selection, more time on and with the prettiness of it all – but devising questions, well that takes the longest. I try and make them a little more edgy, a little more fun, maybe glitzy and with each nomination it gets harder. This time l have opted for a completely random abstract pondering!
If I could spin round on my chair fast enough how long will I need to spin round to move forward in time to next Friday?

If you only had one year left to live, what would you do with those 12 months?
Okay, your best friend has really bad body odour and bad breath at the same time do you tell them and risk offending/upsetting them or not?
Ok, you are given the chance to flip the card to win 1000 [your currency] or keep the 500 [your currency] that you already have. Do you take the risk and flip the card?
How very odd!
