The first time I saw my name on the Amazon website listed as an author was so exciting! I realised in that moment that my journey as an author had begun. A writer's work develops over time and my writing skills have evolved in time too but the quality of writing words and sentences rhythmically was evident from my first audio book and has continued in every audio story I have written since. As I've mentioned in another Blog post, I don't over think! This just happens naturally.
I have lots of ideas for stories all the time! I’ve always had a very creative mind and stories and music just seem to pour out of me. I like the idea of unlikely heroes and characters overcoming obstacles or saving the day! I tend to write fast and once I have begun a story, I'll finish it straight away while the idea is fresh in my mind. I don't like to get interrupted as this can stop the flow of music and words and as I experienced last year with a story, I can find it hard to find the inspiration to pick up where I have left and finish!
Sometimes I go and sit in my local park writing my ideas down in a book. As our stories are all about nature and animals, this is a great location to find inspiration but I have also had ideas randomly whilst traveling on the tube for instance!
The responds to our audio books has been amazing! I'm so glad people can hear how unique our stories really are. You can read a few press snippets here: http://www.musicaudiostories.com/press
I can't wait to see where this incredible journey takes me next!
