Here we go again.Like my photography blog, I'll be posting little rambles and musings. Also, I'll be updating you on what work I'm undertaking and small extracts of creative pieces. This blog is basically a combination of my work and news, just in one big bundle.
So, the work I'm trying to do, but failing to do because of lack of energy (come on, it feels like January has dragged on for five years), is write five short synopsis for short stories. This has been set by a university lecturer. I may use a few of these ideas for actual pieces. Most of them are set in the modern day, so it is a step outside my comfort zone once again. Even though i passion is the genre of romantic period fiction, I like to challenge myself to try and write in a different tone, with a different audience in mind.
I think it's good for any writer to push themselves to write for a new genre. Not only does it give new experiences, it also broadens horizons and makes us more adaptable. So far, I'm enjoying the task as it's making me think of different plots and characters so I can bank these ideas for further use if I need them.
I've been musing a lot lately. Writing small bits and pieces that just seem to appear from thin air. I think it's due to the amount of music I've been listening to. I've been listing to a lot of television and film soundtracks, the repetitiveness keeps my mind occupied so I can get some work done.
One piece of music is from the movie, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. The theme itself is called "Harry in Winter" If you have a few moments, then go check it out.
Below is the piece based on the music mentioned above. Enjoy!
There once was a time when everything was perfect,
A time when we thought nothing could go wrong,
Then fate stepped in and dealt a sickening blow.
Now, nothing is the same and never will be.
Friendships crumble, hatred consumes,
We are broken beyond repair,
Dreaming of a time long ago.
A time when everything was perfect,
And nothing could go wrong.
Well, that's it for today. I'd better finish typing up my ideas for tomorrows lecture, otherwise heads will roll.
Until the next time.
