WHY DID YOU START A BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Boredom. To connect with other people. To begin to meet people who might provide input on the novels I’ve been writing. To learn about more cultures. To see different styles in writing and opinions on books I’ve read. That enough? 🙂
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?
I’m often asked this question, and I have a few in rotation. So I’m picking a new one for people to take a look at: Ken Follett’s “Night Over Water.” It takes places about 60 years ago when planes weren’t all that popular, but the thriller and mystery aspects associated with the traveling is amazing. The characters and multiple stories intersect at such wonderful places. It has romance, intrigue, history and humor. A great read.
WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE THE MOST?
People who treat others with disdain, anger or indifference. Words and actions hurt. Rather than continue the cycle, step away and let it go. Be the bigger person and don’t add another link to the chain. Throw out a hand to try to make things better and find common ground. Just be nice. Costs nothing. And if you don’t want to be positive, then walk away rather than do something negative to another living person or creature.
Sounds of me getting down off my soap box.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT THE MALL?
I like cinnamon buns and the chinese restaurants. So bad for you, but it just says “mall” to me. I have to eat when I’m done shopping otherwise the clothes end up too big from eating so much beforehand. Ugh!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PAST TIME?
Reading. TV. Writing. Genealogy. Cooking. Gardening. In that order.
*I tried to pick people I haven’t tagged before (or that much) to start spreading more news about great blogs to check out. But I would tag everyone if I could!
I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. Once you hit my site “ThisIsMyTruthNow” at https://thisismytruthnow.com/2017/05/20/award-awesome-blogger/ you can join the fun and see my blog and various site content. You’ll find book reviews, published and in-progress fiction, TV/Film reviews, favorite vacation spots and my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge.” Since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life… see how you compare! Each month, I will post a summary of a trip I’ve taken somewhere in the world. I’ll cover the transportation, hotel, restaurants, activities, who, what, when, where and why… and let you decide for yourself if it’s a trip worth taking.
Feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Tell me what you think.
