In 1989 I was 15 and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson, on whom I was also majorly crushing. I thought I was hot and wrote prolifically, although I started writing late in the year.
That led me to analysing lyrics, which I guess led me to analysing books…
Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote songs that they were my practice for story-telling with much bigger and better scribblings, such as short stories, novellas, non-fiction, and mega novels.
These lyrics cover a wide range of topics from 1989 to 2002, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on. They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.
