Sharing My World – Smells, Writing and Books

The Share Your World-  writing challenge is brought to us each week by the lovely Cee via her Photography Blog. It consists of 4 questions she makes to get to know each other better.

These are this weeks’s questions:

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

I love the smell of fresh roses, fresh laundry, fresh baked cookies, the smell of new cars, and I’m a citrus girl when it comes to wearing perfume.

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?

I still use my handwriting which is a combination of cursive and print for grocery lists, jotting down directions (I don’t own a GPS or a smartphone), and surprise love notes that I leave around for my hubby.

For everything else, I type in my laptop.

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

I can’t pick only one so here’s a few:

What’s one of your favorite books from childhood?

“The Knight in Rusty Armor” Spanish edition. (I like this cover better)

The Knight in Rusty Armor” by Robert Fisher is a book that I read when I was very young and has stayed in my heart forever. I think every young person should read it, and adults too. The plot is really simple and easy to follow but it has profound meanings throughout. The book gives different lessons to every reader, but mainly has a very spiritual theme about finding our true-self and getting rid of all the “armors” we put on ourselves to protect us from others, making mistakes, or getting hurt.

I also really liked “The Last Book in the Universe” a dystopian novel based in a post-apocalyptic world with a great message about not judging others, and I’m definitely a “Harry Potter” fan.
