Hamlet, by Simon & Garfunkel

Hamlet, by Simon & Garfunkel

Today I want to talk about Hamlet. I mean, I’ve got no particular reason for wanting to talk about Hamlet now except that I always want to talk about Hamlet. It would make more sense for me to talk about, I don’t know, Dance Academy or something, given that I watched the whole of series three in less than a day this week. But nah. Hamlet. At the beginning of year twelve (my penultimate year of school), I went through…

Music Is My Substitute For Talking About My Feelings

Music Is My Substitute For Talking About My Feelings

And I still believe that everyone, Can find a song for every time they’ve lost and every time they’ve won — Frank Turner, I Still Believe I know I’m not alone when I say I rely on music not only to help me express my feelings, but also to avoid doing so. As a result, it tends to play an important part in my writing process, because I need it to evoke the moods I need for characters and to…

Iron Cold

Iron Cold

A song/poem I wrote in my notebook earlier today. Let me know what you think! Write me a story, sing me a song Tell me it’s ending and we won’t be here long Watch the world burn as all right turns to wrong And hear the bells ring, hear the call of the gong. We ride through the night in the blackest shadows We’re tired and we bleed and everyone knows That we lost the fight with the dead when…

I have to admit that I am one of the many Who thought NaNoWriMo would win her a book deal My novelling years, they were a publishing drought And I…

Mad Monday: Still Got Legs review

Mad Monday: Still Got Legs review

So, yesterday Chameleon Circuit’s CD, “Still Got Legs” finally arrived. Hooray! Amusingly, to those who know what I’m talking about, the postmarks informed me that the parcel had gone via France. Paris, in fact. It was posted from America – looks like it did a Michael Aranda. Let me tell you about Chameleon Circuit. They are an incredibly nerdy band who write songs about Doctor Who. The name, Chameleon Ciruit, is referring to the part of the TARDIS that is…

Terrible Tuesday: Because I forgot to post yesterday….

Terrible Tuesday: Because I forgot to post yesterday….

So, I’ve been having a great time writing songs, and here are the lyrics to ‘Anwen In Pink’. Demo will be up on YouTube shortly, thought you might like to see the writing side of it all… Anwen in Pink Born amidst the darkness, A child of fights and war, Who grew up in her mother’s arms, And who knows what she saw? We couldn’t hide forever They’d find us soon enough. I only thought to keep her safe, Don’t…
