As the long winter months stretch before us and I am gearing up for some short days and long nights ahead, I started thinking again about a concept I read about earlier this year. The concept of Hygge. This is a Danish idea that basically translates into English as the art form of creating feelings of cozy, warm contentment and wellness.
First, thank you so much to Sarah for nominating me for this tag! As she correctly guessed, I do love music 🙂 Secondly, I accidentally hit publish when I wasn’t quite finished the first time, so here it finally is now with all the questions answered! It was such fun to do! This tag was right up my alley!
I have very eclectic music tastes so this should be interesting…
First off, though,
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their post.
- Answer the fourteen questions listed in this post.
- For any questions where you choose to share YouTube videos, try to stick to one (1) embedded video to avoid overwhelming readers. Feel free to add links to additional videos directly in the text.
- Nominate at least three (3) bloggers for this tag.
1. Do you like listening to music?
Yes, yes! A thousand times, yes! 🙂
2. What songs have you been listening to lately?
Well, Thanksgiving is coming up as I write this so I have been listening to this wonderful playlist by Craig Duncan.
So, is anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this month? I am thinking about joining in for the first time. 🙂 I am almost finished with my second novel and I thought that this would be the perfect push to help me finish! We will see how it goes especially since Thanksgiving is this month and I have some vacation time planned!
Lately, I have thinking about how fun it would be to have a personal writer’s retreat. In the autumn, I always get the desire to travel and see new places. I have been imagining how wonderful it would be to have a cozy writing retreat to travel to and not only explore new places, but work on one of my writing projects too.
So, if I had a personal writer’s retreat to go to this is what I would have –
First, it would be in a gorgeous old house with amazing views.
Any writer should also be a reader. I have been for a long time and though I have read hundreds of books, only a few have become truly my favorites. A lot of them are books that I read when I was younger and that left a deep impression on me. Everyone remembers the first time they visited the Kansas prairie of the Little House books or the fantastic realm of Narnia.
One of those books for me was undoubtedly, Robin Hood.
Who wouldn’t want to write in this gorgeous little nook?!
