Just when you think you have put one book to bed, another comes barrelling through – uninvited, unformed and wanting to be told. Yelping, Hey, hey, pay me some attention! Alright, alright, keep your knickers on (Stories are such drama queens). But with the arrival of a wonderful new idea, you also have to accept the luggage. Suitcases stuffed full of self doubt. Fear sewn into the linings.
Time for a pep talk.
This song kept me sane and upbeat while I worked away at The Colour of Tea manuscript. It was particularly helpful to get me concentrated after a tea/lunch/general procrastination break. Jem‘s video for the song stitches together thousands of photographs (stop motion, hoorah!) featuring her playing all sorts of roles, not least of all, successful musician. Not bad for a wee lass from Wales.
So, with this new idea yanking at my trouser leg and demanding my full attention, looks like it is time to once again crank up the music. And get down to business.
