Very Inspiring Bloggers Award

Very Inspiring Bloggers Award

I was nominated for “The Very Inspiring Blogger Award” on Monday by fellow blogger at Imagineer-ing and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Chelsea Brown for this award.

Thank you very much Steve, I truly appreciate this and I am paying it forward now.


Here are the rules of the award:

  1. Display the award logo,
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you,
  3. State 7 things about yourself,
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.

Alright, let me try to share seven things that you may not know about me. 

  1. I love to read, read, read a lot of books. I find reading relaxing and enlightening.
  2. I love listening to music. i prefer a bit of everything when it involves music: classical, rock,  slightly jazz, so on. I typically hear music once I am within the workplace. I stream music from an online station or alternative online tool. the idea is to listen to something while i’m working. I listen to music also betting on my mood, and i often find that I connect songs to sure moods and thoughts. for instance, in my writing, i’ll occasionally  use a line from a song lyric as an epigraph as a way to line a context or mood for the writing. I positively love definitely music, and i think music is a crucial aspect of my life.
  3. I might sometimes write for other publications. I also ghost pieces pretty regularly. And I’ll also occasionally blog for the SelfPublish101. It’s a big Internet out there.
  4. I go to the gym occasionally. And jog every Saturday and Sunday.
  5. During my leisure time I played Video Games with my brother, it’s fun. Try!
  6. My ambition in life.. I want to become a writer! I want to write stories that are capable of changing the lives of people. I always had writing as a hobby. Whenever I was unhappy or dissatisfied with my life, I would often write short stories emerging from my imagination.
  7. I am also doing some image editing/designing.

Writing For 100 Hours?

What’s this all about?

My name’s David Varela and I’m a writer. I’ve written films, plays, games, poems, global ad campaigns, and all sorts of other strange things – but now, for one week only, I’m taking requests. I’ll write what you tell me to. You can also watch my writing process in action – live, via webcam – and you’ll be able to see every keystroke as I type it on our website. For 100 hours, my every word is yours. I’m taking a vow of silence and I won’t have any private communications – no texts, no tweets, no emails. Every word is public domain. And everything I write is copyright-free.

The View Outside

Are we all still here? Lol 😉

Could you write for 100 hours, straight? LIVE on a web cam?

Well that’s exactly what David Varela is doing, and in the process, raising money for charity. David is hoping to raise £3000 for The Arvon Foundation to go towards their work with children. They run writing schools to encourage children to write.

So David will be writing for 100 hours, with as few breaks and as little sleep as possible. If you donate, you can request a subject for him to write about.

Thanks to Hannah in my writing class for the heads up on this….absolutely amazing!

Please check out David’s Web Cam & Site which I can’t embed here, but what I can imbed is an interview David did recently about his challenge.

He must be absolutely shattered poor luv!

Would you ever consider a writing marathon? I wrote for…
