At this point I feel I should apologise to anyone who knows me and has already heard this news multiple times in the last few hours. Usually in a high pitched, sing-song voice whilst I jump up and down. Common sense and maturity will prevail at some point I promise... But I make no promises as to when that might be.
My guest blog will be looking at the writing process from the slightly different view point of a lyricist with stage fright.
Whilst I write short stories and novels, my love of writing started with writing lyrics. This is still the form I am most passionate, and yet most secretive about.
I'll be looking back at my journey from a disastrous debut performance as a singer songwriter, through years of confining my dreams to secret notebooks, to finally finding the courage to enter a song writing contest.
I hope that by sharing my experiences I'll shed light on the lessons I’ve learnt and the humorous way I discovered them. Writing, in any form, requires you to take chances and criticism. I hope that my story can encourage others to be brave (and in key).
I do hope you'll stop by the Mslexia blog and say Hi.
