My songs are always based on something true. A story about me or someone I know. Sometimes they are just to express my feelings on a subject - could be love, friendship, family, or just life in general. Once in a while, random words come to mind in the way of a hook and how to give those words meaning might come along later.
Well I'm a singer-songwriter, I teach vocals and I'm a wife and mother so that leaves very little time. When I wrote my first novel I very often wrote in the early hours of the morning. I'm a bit of an insomniac so it seemed the ideal opportunity. At the moment I've set myself a challenge to write a minimum of 1000 words per day as I try to finish my second novel.
