Mystery Blogger Award

Thanks to Suzi for tagging me into the Mystery Blogger Award. Suzi has a very colourful blog (and hair) so if you don’t know her go and have a look. She’s got bright and sunny tips for brightening up life in general so please make sure you say hi!

According to the Mystery Blogger award it’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts… you think they’re ingenious now – you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!


Award Guidance

Thank whoever gifted you and include a link to their blog

Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well

Tell your readers 3 things about yourself

Answer the questions from the person who gifted you the Award.

Choose 3 – 5 bloggers that you wish to gift the Award to.

Ask 5 questions of your choice with one weird or funny one

Notify those you gift the Award to.


3 Things About Yourself!

I always struggle to think of things to say about myself… I try and be original but it’s difficult. Here goes though:

1) I was once forced to jump out of a tree from about 12 feet up.

2) I’m an engineer but I’m not pleased with how technology is going in terms of cheap, disposable devices that clog up the eco and waste systems. This should and can last.

3) I fix things… sometimes things I think are unfixable.


Suzi’s Five Questions

What is the biggest lesson you have learned in your time blogging?

I’ve learned a few things. People come and people go, even recently a keen blogger has upped and gone without warning. It”s hard to keep it up and to do it you have to adapt. But the community here is great.

If you could travel to any planet which one would it be and how would you get there?

Neptune, it’s so blue and cold. Oh no hang on Saturn and it’s rings. But… oh all of them and I would get there in the Millennium Falcon.

Do you ever give your cars (or other transportation) names?

No, unless it were to fly or float.

What’s your weirdest habit?

Thinking…

What are your 3 desert island must haves?

Food, water and pen / pencil / paper. IS that allowed?


My Five Questions

My five questions will be the same as those Suzi gave me… I’m curious too.

As always no pressure to do this but I look forward to any replies.

Three Things You Might Not Know About Me

As a recipient of the Mystery Blogger Reward, I am magically compelled to reveal secrets. I”m not sure what secrets to tell… here goes:

  1. I want to have a tattoo but I don’t know what / where.
  2. I once jumped about 15 – 20 ft out of a tree becasue I was forced to
  3. I hate heights

Here’s More…

I am also contractually obligated to answer five questions posed by the person who has nominated me for the award. So here are Matt’s questions and my answers…


1) What writer or book made you want to be a writer?

It has to be Arthur C Clarke and 2001 initially but the man was visionary.


2) What is the value of speculative fiction in the modern world?

I think it’s an imperative part of writing, it’s about visions, hopes, dreams and what could be in the future.


3) Is there anyone that you will not allow to read your work?

No, mainly becasue those people won’t read it anyway.


4) What is your most impressive physical feat?

I’ve not don’t much that’s impressive physically, except that jumping out of the tree thing. But in a way that’s just gravity.

Let’s Connect with the fun Writers Tag

My friend and fellow writer Ari and her friend Lorraine have created the fun writers tag as she says: “Being a writer can be a lonely business.  So we thought we’d create the Writers Tag to get the ball rolling and in a fun way, introduce each other to all the wonderful writers who blog.”

Ari was kind enough to tag me into this and so here I am passing on the tag magic.Before we start the Writers Tag, here is a little work to put in:

☆ Post the Tag and Image on your blog (see above).

☆ Thank whoever nominated you and give a link back to their blog.

☆ Mention the creators of the tag and link back to their blogs.

☆ Nominate 6+ deserving bloggers and notify your nominees by commenting on their
blogs.

This Writers Tag was created by Lorraine Ambers and Ari Meghlen.  Click on the highlighted names to check out their blogs and don’t forget to leave a comment to tell them that you’ve played the fun Writers Tag so they can connect with you too.

So let’s get started with this fun, quick-fire Writers Tag and get to know each other a little better. 


 

Questions for the Writers Tag (and my answers)

 

  • Name one novel that inspired you to write.

I think many novels have inspired me, and each one I read helps me grow in some way as a writer. 2001 was a big inspiration for me, but since then have been many more. Most notably the Martian.

  • What’s your favourite genre to write and read?

The major genre I read and write is Scifi but I also have a bit of a taste for fantasy too.

 

  • Do you prefer to write stand-alone or series?

I’m not sure yet, I haven’t written enough.

 

  • Use 3 words to describe yourself

Geeky, thinker, imaginative.

 

  • Reveal your WIP aesthetics or an image that represents your MC or setting.

 

 

  • How long did your first MS take to draft?

The clock is still ticking…

 

  • Who is your author idol?

Arthur C Clarke. His imagination and inspiration was amazing.

 

  • Share a writing memory that made you determined to carry on.

I can’t actually think of one….

 

  • Tell us something surprising or unique about yourself.

I don’t know.. Am I unique?

 

  • Share the hardest part about being a writer and how you overcame it.

Finding time and headspace to write really is challenging for me.

 

  • What’s your favourite social media and why? Share your link.

Twitter is my favourite social media platform, it’s so easy to find and engage with writers and other creative people of similar interests.

 

  • Share some uplifting wisdom in six words or less.

Keep going, don’t stop!

 


 

I nominate the following deserving writers:

Scribes Canvas

Amaris Wenslaslas

The Amity Award

Every now and then in the blogging world we get those little surprises. I got one a couple of weeks ago when Acire from Scribes Canvas tagged me into her new award – The Amity Award you may not have heard of this before that’s becasue it’s brand new and Acire’s own creation.

In her release of this award she states that I’ve been a supporter of her blog from the beginning and that’s totally true. Acire has a great, creative mind and this shows really well in her work. I also learned ages ago that’s she’s a keen science fiction reader so naturally that kind of person deserves every support and I’m more than happy to help her launch this award into the blogosphere and give it wings.


 

Here are the details of the Amity Award:

  • Premise: To recognize those bloggers who promote kindness and support, as well as to acknowledge those who you feel deserve to be recognized for their positive contribution to the blogging community.

    • It could be anything you feel fits this idea. For example kind comments, showing support to others, bringing art and/or beauty into the world, sharing personal experiences that you have found helpful, a place where you enjoying going to have a rest-bit from daily life, etc.

  • Guidelines:

    • Write a post thanking the person who nominated you.

    • Include the Premise statement and Guidelines of the award.

    • Write a few sentences about why you started your blog.

    • Write a bit about what you appreciate about the blogging community and/or a way that you like to spread kindness in the blogging community.

    • Nominate 2 or more fellow bloggers who you feel deserve to be recognized.

In my own personal side note – I would like those I nominate to tag back to Acire’s original Amity Award post  so the origin is known about and the word spread.

I would like to start off this award by answering the questions and nominating a few fellow bloggers.

Why did I start this blog?  

When I started this blog over five years ago it wasn’t Planet Simon and I had no idea about what I was doing. I struggled to get to grips with WordpRess but I persisted (mainly because I’m a persistent bugger) and I think it’s paid off. I wanted to share my thoughts with the world and give myself  a place to share with the world my ideas. Over time this has progressed and Planet Simon is now a place of thought, word, creativity and exploration where I can show what I’m capable of and also help others.
This path has meant I’ve had to split what I do and for my general log / random stuff is now in another place on Simon’s Blog, becasue I wanted to have that place to kind of do what I want.

What’s something that I appreciate about the blogging community?

I’ve found great friends in the blogging world and a whole world of thinking and of perspective that I never knew existed. People here are great and I appreciate everyone who views, likes, comments.

How do I like to spread kindness in the blogging community?

It’s hard at times, but I make sure all comments are replied to and I’m giving a little back for the bloggies here to learn about what I’ve learned and help others get closer to where they want to be in their creative blogging world. I also think at a personal one to one level it helps when we all help each other find our way through our separate path’s.


 

I would like to nominate the following blogs for the Amity Award:

Cyranny

The Darkest Fairytale

HotShot Headlines

Lolsy’s Library

House of Heart

Books and Bakes

Illuminated Literation

Reveuse

All these people are great bloggies, some have been with me from the start and others are new. All of them are supportive and I hope you all appreciate this and carry it on. Cheers muchly guys 🙂

Mystery Blogger Award

mystery-blogger-award

I woke up this morning to a blog award nomination from MacKenzie. You really should go and have a look at her blog, she has a pretty long list of conditions she’s been diagnosed with but she refuses to let this get in the way and has some pretty inspiring posts so go and pay her a visit please as she’s great!

 


 

Mystery Blogger Award:

“It’s an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.”
Created by Okoto Enigma.

The rules are:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • You have to nominate 10 – 20 people.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).

Here are my answers from MacKenzie!

To do what I do and have fun doing it.

  • What’s your favorite holiday?

A quiet one near the great outdoors.

  • If a genie gave you 3 wishes, what would they be?

I thought about this and it drove me nuts. I would either have to be selfish or not and if I wanted to help others I couldn’t help everyone. So I gave up.

  • If you could go anywhere on vacation where would you go?

The Lake District

  • If you could only have one type of sandwich the rest of your life what kind would it be?

Cheese and pickle! 😛

 

Three things about me are:

I always struggle to think of something new to put into these, but I’ll have a good go:

  1. I try to make sure I go for a walk everyday – I can’t stand sitting around.
  2. When I was at school I was really crap at Maths – so I went into engineering as a career. Nuts eh?
  3. I’ve recently been using step / sleep tracking in my everyday life. It’s funny the effect this has on you as I now try and take the long route when walking to get a few extra steps in.

Some questions I have for my nominees:

  1. What’s do you hope to better yourself in this year?
  2. What was your favourite Christmas yummy?

Lise tagged me on her Summer Tag: Would you rather post the other week and being a sucker for a tag I thought I would join the Summer fun and take part!

 

Now, would you rather . . . 

  1. live in a tree house or a castle? I would love to live in a tree house, being high up, feeling like you’re above the troubles on the ground and able to look out the on the worlds horizon.
  2. be able to sing beautifully or dance beautifully? I think to be able to dance well would be much cooler. You can do that with someone!
  3. ride a horse or a camel? A horse, to be able to ride that noble animal and have that connection would be amazing!
  4. know a fairy or a unicorn? A unicorn, the ultimate fantasy beast.
  5. have a backyard that was a huge bounce house or a huge ball pit? I would love a bouncy castle, so much fun can be had with them. Even at my age 😀
  6. travel or stay home? I would like to travel a bit, but there’s no place like home.
  7. be able to fly or be able to breathe under water? I would like to be able to fly, the world in all it’s glory can be seen from up above.
  8. know where you’re going or have it be a surprise? I want and need to know where I’m going. The surprise build up can easily lead to disappointment.
  9. be on a boat or on an airplane? I love boats, they’re a very peaceful place to be.
  10. be able to see in the dark or be able to never get tired? I would like to be able to see in the dark, so I can take in what’s going on when everything think’s it’s hidden.
  11. go on a vacation to the beach or to the mountains? I love mountains, nothing beats the joy of reaching the top after a hard climb.
  12. have picnics in the forest or in the park? How about a park in a forest?
  13. swim in the ocean or swim in a pool? Swim in a pool, there’s sharks in the ocean!
  14. be a dolphin or a cheetah? A dolphin would be cool, to be able to swim fast and keep out of trouble and be able to talk still!
  15. be able to make people laugh or be able to make people trust you? I want to be able to make people laugh, you can’t make them trust you.
  16. be surprised by a present or be able to pick what you get? I want to be bale to pick…
  17. eat popsicles or watermelon? Water melon, it leaves me feeling good, a popsicle has guilt attached.
  18. go camping or stay in a hotel? Camping, being outdoors is a tonic for the soul.
  19. do art or read? I can’t choose, so I duck out and say both.
  20. experience an epic waterslide or an epic zip line? Zip wire – I don’t like heights but having been on an epic zip wire it’s the best.
