Wake me up
‘All this time I was finding myself and I didn’t know that I was lost’
This song is another that helps energise me, as despite the lyrics referring a person who’s lost and desperately trying to stay young, it’s a upbeat melody. I relate a little too much to the song, but I imagine that many people will have felt the same way as described in the lyrics, at one time in their lives.
I hadn’t watched the video until today, and didn’t realise quite what the story line was in it. I certainly never picked up on any supernatural, alien themes in the lyrics. I thought it was merely about someone who hadn’t quite achieved what they wanted to do, and was struggling to be all that they wanted to be in life.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
