Writing Challenge “One”

Before we begin, check the post about my book, written by A. Shepherdson (Blog from UK) – So Absurd…

Rules: answer 11 questions below. 

1. One person who inspired you.

Helen Keller.

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” 

2. One moment that changed the course of your life.

The day I bought my first computer. 

3. One thing that you would change about yourself, your life, the world. 

About myself – learn to listen
About my life – PA (help with cleaning, cooking etc)
The world – A LOT. Definitely more than one thing. 

4. One hero/heroine from past/or present.

Nelson Mandela. 

5. One cultural recommendation (film, book, song, painting).

Film – “Leon”
Book – Demons, Dostoevsky
Song – “A couple More Years”, written by Dennis Locorriere and Shel Silverstein
Painting – Claude Monet, any.

6. One challenge the world is facing.

Climate change.

7. One great thing that we has achieved. 


8. One regret

Nothing comes to my mind…

9. One nugget of advice for humanity.

Learn your damn lessons! 

10. One alternative career path you might have chosen.


11. One thing that you could do better, but you don’t.

Anything. But I don’t…

    Life is made up of a series of issues that all have 2 sides! Why concentrate on the negative!

  8. Robert Sherriff Author of NOBODY’S HOME
    Please read this. Don’t run away. This book it is about (“Domestic abuse”) and (‘Sexual Abuse”) Most people don’t want to talk about it? You say taboo you say “NO” too hard subject.
    Everyone is entitled to be brought up in a safe and secure environment, free from violence, abuse, and cruelty. It is one of the fundamental rights of anyone brought into the world by parents who should love and care for them above all else.
    But for Robert Sherriff, it wasn’t like that. First behind the closed doors of a seemingly ordinary family home and then in the dark recesses of a society that was ill-equipped to deal with the trauma and suffering he experienced, Robert found that mercy was just a dream.
