By Judith Wibberley:

Play music before you write, during writing and at breaks you take.  
I listen to Vittorio Grigolo, Il Divo and Andrea Bocelli for romance and passion. I listen to James Blunt for words to inspire stories. I love Mika for fun music and I listen to the local radio when I go into the kitchen to make a drink, have a quick dance around the kitchen to chill out between writing. Music is great to inspire your creative ideas and your moods. Here are some lyrics that really make you think.
As strong as you were, tender you go
I’m watching you breathing for the last time
A song for your heart, but when it is quiet
I know what it means and I’ll carry you home
I’ll carry you home
If she had wings she would fly away
And another day God will give her some
Trouble is the only way is down, down, down
My life is brilliant
My love is pure
I saw an angel of that I’m sure
She smiled at me on the subway
She was with another man
But I won’t loose no sleep on that cos I’ve got a plan
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful it’s true
I saw your face in a crowded place
And I don’t know what to do
Cos I’ll never be with you
The are children standing here
Arms outstretched into the sky
Tears drying on their face
He has been here
Brothers lie in shallow graves
Father’s lost without a trace
A nation blind to it’s disgrace
He has been here.
And I see no bravery
No bravery in your eyes anymore
Only sadness

Here is something to contemplate if you feel that you will never get published - never achieve your dreams.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us
We ask ourselves: who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't
feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to manifest the Glory of God that is within us: it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Written by Marianne Williamson

Spoken by Nelson Mandela in his inauguration speech

"Every time Nelson Mandela walks into a room we all feel a little bigger, we all want to stand up, we all want to cheer, because we'd like to be him on our best day."

Former President Bill Clinton
