My foray into serious writing began with a poem. A simple dedication of love.
At the time I was also interested in making music and a friend gave me a tip: anything you write, you can sing, you only need a guitar. I taught myself a few basic guitar chords, took my poem and converted it into a song. It became the first song I ever wrote.
Since then I have written hundreds of lyrics. Many of them became songs but many didn't. The writing of lyrics became my passion. I found converting them into songs as the best way to express my writing. However the writing, much more than the music, was my focus. Music was just a tool to convey the words. At some stage I decided to go a step further and write a musical.
I made several attempts at writing the musical but it never really came together. The story behind the musical, though, has stayed with me ever since. About four years ago I decided to take the plunge and write something more substantial than a poem or a lyric.
I decided to write a novel.
As I was used to writing very short and concise pieces, usually to depict or describe a single event or emotion, writing an entire book seemed daunting. It required so many words. I started with a few ideas that I had, but in the end the pull of the story behind the musical was the strongest. It wouldn't let me go.
It has now become my first novel.
