Lynda Spiro - There is Always More To Say
I can’t believe that we are now in August!  Another week has flown by! And it’s time for more reviews and results on the blog. It’s been a good week Nikki Bywater from Nikki’s Books4U read and reviewed ‘There Is Always More To Say’. I was overwhelmed by the lovely review that Nikki gave the book. And you can read it here. Also Julie Boon from Boon’s Bookcase very kindly put an extract of the book on her blog. All these lovely bloggers, readers and reviewers have been so positive towards both me and the book. It’s seriously very humbling. You can also read a piece that I wrote for Nikki’s blog, ‘Eight Tips I Wish I Had Known Before Becoming An Author‘. Hope you find them useful. And thank you, Nikki for having posted them.
I am seriously overwhelmed by the kindness of the lovely bloggers who are reading and reviewing for me. You are helping me in this journey of promoting my book in a way that I would never have dreamed possible.
On another note, I entered some lyrics that I had written into the UK Song Writing Competition http://www.songwritingcontest.co.uk/ I am delighted to say that I have been named a semi-finalist which means that ‘You Tell Me’ now goes into the final. The next stage of the competition. Apparently, only 20% of entries get selected as a semi-finalist. So I am obviously very excited. I have this dream that these lyrics will be used for one of the songs when I finally make ‘There Is Always More To Say’ into a film. If you want to read the lyrics. Here they are. I can’t play any instruments so if any of you fancy writing some music for my lyrics please do so!

 

When I’m by myself and all alone
I think of my sins and try to atone
As I lie in bed awaiting sleep
The thoughts that I have would make you weep
Often I think of you all day long
Is this right or is this wrong?
I want to call you it seems so unfair
Of course I won’t I would never dare.

You tell me you know what’s going on in my head
About the words I haven’t yet said
You tell me you know what’s going on in my heart
About the pain when we are apart

When I see couples walking down the street
It makes me wonder when we’re next gonna meet
I see them walking hand in hand
And next to you I want to stand
It’s true for now you’re not by my side
I hope our happiness won’t always be denied
It’s barely tolerable how much I miss you
I seriously really want to kiss you

You tell me you know what’s going on in my head
About the words I haven’t yet said
You tell me you know what’s going on in my heart
About the pain when we are apart

When everything else is said and done
For me you are the only one
Why has it taken me so long to discover
I love you like I have loved no other
I’m not sure I can handle this situation any longer
It’s making me weaker as opposed to stronger
I think of you each and every day
I know there is always more to say

You tell me you know what’s going on in my head
About the words I haven’t yet said
You tell me you know what’s going on in my heart
About the pain when we are apart

This week I have set time aside to really knuckle down and continue writing the first draft of my new book. My head is totally overloaded with ideas. I need to get them down!  And as quickly as possible.  Catch you all soon. Thanks for reading this blog. Thanks also for sharing your views and ideas with me about ‘There Is Always More To Say’. I am always happy to answer any questions that you might have. I am enjoying the emails that you are sending me. They have definitely fed my creativity this week! Keep in touch. Thanks.
