ASA and Brooke Fraser

What does a Parisian born  Nigerian old-school soul singer  and a New Zealand born christian leaning singer have in common. These are the  two women who were the sound track for writing and completing Still. I have profound respect and admiration for these women. They are so uniquely talented and they are not wasting their gifts.
In this world of over saturated pop plastic songs,  which I must admit I subscribe to. *Sings Taylor Swift’s  Bad Blood*  Side note if you haven't watched the video please go watch it for cameo galore and girl power. It was also absolutely hilarious bordering on cute to watch Taylor Swift try to act tough.

Anyway its refreshing to see women that go against the grain and stand out in a big way.
I wish I could compose music because its such a gratifying and quick process.
Step 1 Have an idea of a song
Step 2 w rite it
Step 3  put some beats
and viola a song in approximately 1 – 2 months.

However in writing,
1, have an idea
2. brood on the idea for a year
3. Start writing the novel
4. complete writing in 2 years time
5. Edit in 6 months – 1 year
6. Then publish.
Sigh lets not go into publicity and marketing.

But they say the
Grass is always greener right….
I also truly believe we are all uniquely created by God for a specific purpose…nothing is a mistake with God. Even  my personality was carefully calculated

Psalm 139 vs 4 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Its absolutely refreshingly to have women like these though. I love their creativity ! All Creativity is a testament to God because He made all things for his pleasure.
Hear that Kanye! Your creativity is not by your own doing. You aint Yeezus.

PS I absolutely love medical residency .. all about saving lives (insert heavy sarcasm here)

PPS how do you post videos on a blog? I could only post a hyperlink.

  1. Yes, indeed, we owe our gifts, talents and all to God. Thanks for reminding me that I do have my unique place in God.

    Love your blog.

    Congatulations on your first book annd, just for the record, I think that "Aspiring writer" on your tagline is kinda out of place ;)
