R-ising from the ashes
A-cting really really strange
Tell me about your blog(s), name(s), what does it mean to you?
Bended Spoon was born while my kiddos and I are bending spoons for fun, it struck me that I am very much like a bent spoon – useless to some, fun-to-have to some, special to the One.
When have you started blogging?
When I felt that I need to do something new – that was July 2010.
What's the theme(s) of your blog(s)? What do you write most? Poetry, fiction or novel, or short stories?
Bite size servings of pun, fun, and wisdom. Most of my posts are actually based on writing challenges that I join but I honestly don’t know what to call my writings – all I know is I am having fun!
What are the inspirations of your writing?
Usually it’s the bright side of things and beauty in imperfections.
Does music impact your writing?
Just to give you a background: I am in my 30’s who loved and soaked in music only in my 30’s. Pain caused me to forget about music when I was young; pain caused me to love music again.
So now, before I write I oftentimes listen first to music be it meditation, soulful, or lively. Sorry, I don’t know yet how to properly categorize music.
