Kate Evans at her blog Writing Ourselves Well has nominated me (and my blog) for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award, and I’m very honoured. Thank you very much Kate. You should visit her site, which is full of inspiration!
The Award Guidelines:
1. Thank the person who has nominated you and add a link to their blog
2. Display the award in a blog entry
3. List the award guidelines so your own nominees will know what to do
4. State 7 things about yourself
5. Nominate 15 others for the Award
15! Nominees probably run into the hundreds by now! Anyway, I will comply and list my nominees below.
Seven things about me:
1. I drove a car in Isfahan with three female friends as passengers when we nearly got caught up in a sea of demonstrators during the Iranian revolution, and I had no scarf or any other item to cover myself
2. Not to worry, we got away!
3. I’ve lived and worked in three countries, The Netherlands, Iran and England
4. I’ve written a memoir about the time I lived in Iran and a novel about a Dutch girl living in a claustrophobic religious community in The Netherlands
5. I love (fiction) writing, novels and short stories, and have a number of projects on the go
6. I am fluently bi-lingual Dutch / English and speak a couple of other languages
7. When I stopped full-time work last year I decided not only to spend lots of time on writing and publishing but also to learn to play a music instrument and chose the clarinet – it’s great fun
