Poems Of A Musical Flavour: Deluxe Edition

***This is the Deluxe Edition paperback consisting of all 6 volumes of Poems of a Musical Flavour

 

In 1989 I was 15 years old and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson. I also started analysing lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…

 

Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote songs that they were my practice for story-telling and much bigger and better scribblings, such as short stories, novellas, and mega novels.

 

Covering a wide range of topics from 1989 to 2002, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on. They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.

 

Enjoy!

Poems Of A Musical Flavour: Box Set 4-6

Music artists were in my life, and I started to analyse lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…

 

Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 125,000 words, and novellas, short stories and non-fictions.

 

By the time 2002 rolled around, I was 28 years old and wrote one song. That’s all I wrote. And I’m surprised I wrote that because I hadn’t written in six years. That was the last song, and all of them were my practice for story-telling in four verses, a chorus, and a bridge for much bigger and better things.

 

Covering a wide range of topics from 1993-2002, or volumes 4-6, mostly love, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.

 

They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.

 

Enjoy!

Poems Of A Musical Flavour: Box Set 1-3

In 1989 I was 15 years old and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson. Music artists were in my life, and I started to analyse lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…

 

Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 125,000 words, and novellas, short stories and non-fictions.

 

Covering a wide range of topics from 1989 to 1992, or volumes 1-3, mostly love, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.

 

They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.

This book is the last in the series and covers years 1994 to 1996 and 2002.

 

I was 20, 21 and 22 and my life was a little more…meh…and so much happened I guess I didn’t have enough time to write, but I certainly had the ideas. I was legally an adult, technically an adult, but mentally still a teenager. With everything going on in my life I wrote less and less. Clearly the endeavour was waning. Or I just needed a holiday. I did start line dancing and that grew into a full blown love for three years. It was music, after all…so clearly my love of music was now leaning toward the dancing side of things.

 

In 2002 I wrote 1 song. That’s all I wrote. And I’m surprised I wrote that because I hadn’t written in six years. I was 28, still living at home as I had taken on the chore of being a care-giver for my mother and I had moved into other things. Line dancing had stopped but my love of music hadn’t and never will.

 

That was the last song I wrote and all of them were my practice for storytelling in four verses, a chorus, and a bridge for much bigger and better things. And now I’ve honoured them with these publications.

 

The book also contains some witty one liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.

 

They are not perfect, nor meant to be, they’re just the musings of a young woman with crushes and dreams.

 

Enjoy!

1993 part 2 is another 100 songs to read and enjoy. Covering a wide range of topics, mostly love, and quite plagiarised by myself. Life in general had changed, the world, the people in it, the ways, the whys, the whats. What the hell were we doing to the world? If only we had kept things the way they were because they changed, and not for the better.

 

1993 is split into two parts because I beat my previous year’s record and wrote 200 songs, so cutting it into two parts makes for easier reading.

 

The book also contains some witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.

 

They are not perfect, nor meant to be, they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams. Here’s 1993 part 2.

 

Enjoy!

In 1993 I was 19 years old and still living in South Australia, but then, what else was I going to be doing? 1993 is split into two parts as, well, I beat my previous year’s record and wrote 200 songs, so cutting it into two parts makes for easier reading.
