Suck it up for she writes again

Suck it up for she writes again

She writes it all so she can heal and mend

You can’t stop her, you must not

She needs to write and she can’t stop

You must let her drivel away at words

You should allow her to sound absurd

Because you don’t know what lies beneath

The truth of everything that hides in a sheath

sailing into the moonbeams

moonbeams 1This is a song I wrote this morning, again I can hear the music and I know how it should be sung, but when reading it on paper it doesn’t seem like it makes much sense, but as a song in my head it’s beautiful and I wish I could write music so I could have done the music to go with it and sing it – it has a very Kate Bush mixed Sarah Brightman sound to the vocals.  I can sing, when my throat isn’t suffering it’s regular viruses, hence why I don’t aspire to be a singer/songwriter, just a songwriter/composer.  Hope you enjoy it?

Look at me

I am sailing into the moonbeams ahead of a dream

I am happy, with silver showers

Guiding me to be free

The night is a friend

I know her well

She is there for me always and is true to me

I trust her

She means the world to me

She helps me set my heart released

From, from the memory of you

I wrap myself up in a milky way – blanket made of silk

I feel the coolness of the air tonight

She has given me the sight – to know

That your weren’t the one for me

So now, I live my life free

Oh woe is not in my heart anymore

I am free now

I can live happily on in my dreams

Ahh, I can see that the night is an angel

She washes me as I sleep

Taking the badness of my day away

In my bed making me sail away

Into the moonshine, into the glaze of the universes wonderful maze

Oh it is true

Look at me

I am sailing into the moonbeams ahead of a dream

I am happy, with silver showers

Guiding me to be free

The night is a friend

I know her well

She is there for me always and is true to me

I trust her

She means the world to me

She helps me set my heart released

From, from the memory of you

current project (gargoyle in world war III)

8903447-gargoyle-statue-emphasis-on-face-and-eyes-with-a-dark-borderI am currently working on a short story about a magic gargoyle, this is based on world war III like the world never really moved on from being stuck in a 1940’s way of life, but with some technological advances we had in the late 70s.  I am unsure what category this story would be if it ever becomes a novel sized piece of work and published, I have no confidence in it’s structure so far, because it’s mostly dialogue and dialogue isn’t my strong point, in fact I think it’s my biggest weakness, so I am taking an enormous risk here.

I aimed for the story’s word count to be between 500 – 800 words, unfortunately it’s not even halfway yet and I have already done 596.

I think taking a creative writing course in September would help me immensely, because I would be able to receive feedback from other wannabe writers and they can help me hone in on my skills with dialogue writing.  Though I have heard from other people that these courses tend to shatter confidences, whereas blog writing builds you up.  I do like honest feedback, if I am showing a weakness somewhere I am prepared to talk it through and make my work better.  So any help out there, I’m ready to receive it!

Thanks!
