Nominated for the Liebster award…

I’ve been nominated by https://whatsonsidsmind.com/author/whatsonsidsmind/

for the Liebster Award. I’m not sure what to do or how to respond. I’m hopeless with links. These are questions he asked me:

What is that one hobby/interest/talent which you have side-lined but would like to revisit and why?

Cooking. I have travelled a lot a picked up recipes. I worked as a cook in Barcelona, Spain and Enniskillen, the North of Ireland. I love feeding people and experimenting. I still cook, but less lavishly.

Who is your role model (if any) and why?

My Dad. He could mix with royalty and the poorest without distinction. He was kind, patient, loving and tender. He was universally loved, and taught me to love nature, respect it and leave it alone. He was my strength when I had none.

What do you think are your greatest strengths?

Gosh, I’m not sure I know. Determination, grit, compassion, being a friend, thinking outside the box, not conforming. I am generous and have a huge capacity to love.

What is that one piece of writing/post that you are most proud of?

Any piece that confronts racism, poverty, hunger, and war. I hope all of these are reflected in my poetry as well as blog posts.

What do you do to motivate yourself when you are down?

Self talk. We are what we think. I try to tell myself I am worth loving. That giving up fails myself and my family. I tell myself things will get better.

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by madswirl.com and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.

Hi Chrisssie,
Sorry to have managed to have confused you with regards to the award nomination process and to have got to your post late. Its been a hectic last couple of weeks. In my intimation to you, about your nomination, on your post dated 3rd June – “Rain at last”; I had attached a link (which was my post on the nomination process). If you had clicked that link you would have seen all the questions on my post. This is the link, I am talking about – https://whatsonsidsmind.com/2020/06/04/liebster-award-nomination/ (please click the link).

If you are still experiencing difficulty in accessing my post, here are the questions for you:
What is that one hobby/interest/talent which you have side-lined but would like to revisit and why?
