Who is your favorite music artist and name three things you like about them?
I have always enjoyed their music whether they are rocking or doing a ballad. They sound better in person than in any recording. What got me hooked though was their stance for Christ!
How old were you when you did your first creative writing or graphic design (drawing)?
I used to do calligraphy in high school and oil paint. Sold several pieces during my junior and senior year. My first drawing was of my pet lab named Pooch standing in a field pointing at something off the page when I was in elementary school. I have also done portraits of friends that I would give to them upon completion.
Why and how long have you been on WordPress blogging?
I’ve been blogging for almost six years now and I chose WordPress because of a recommendation of a friend.
What is your favorite holiday, if any to celebrate and why?
Favorite holiday 🤔🤔🤔
It used to be Christmas until I worked for GameStop. I still love Christmas for the true meaning of it, but the retail and shopping at Christmas can kiss my rear!
If you were on the dance floor, what’s your best dance move?
Key word being IF….it would be a slow dance so I can hold her. But I prefer dancing in the comfort of the living room or bedroom while listening to love songs with one special person. I have only truly danced with her.
What inspires you to write?
The things that inspire me to write are my kids, my friendships on and off WordPress and the desire to see God move in people’s lives in one form or another.
Do you find it challenging to write through adversity?
Nah, struggles are what I write about. And more often than not, writing during a struggle gives clarity.
If you were offered to live in a different country and write for a year, what place would you choose and why?
I would go back to Honduras and write about the mission work being done there.
What is your favorite color?
Kind of a tie between red and purple…
Do you still enjoy using handwriting your work?
I do all my writing on my phone, though I will take the time and write a love letter. More personal that way.
When is your favorite time to of day or night to create your work?
I do most of my writing at night around 8.pm with a pot of coffee and some music playing in the background.

For those who have been wondering why Stu adds to the title of each award the number of times he has been nominated here is your answer…
It is NOT a look at me thing but rather a means for me to keep them all straight. This way I can assure myself that I am not repeating myself in answers and questions.
Whew…I feel better now!
