Oo-err! My first play, Some Girl I Used To Know, opens in the West End this week at The Arts Theatre. I’m not gonna lie: as well as being a bit scary it’s bloody exciting! Being the playwright of a show in the West End has always been a dream of mine. I have friends who’ve done it in spectacular fashion but I never really thought it would happen to me, and it got me thinking about some of my other milestones and highlights as a writer and songwriter.
These are my top five I guess: the things I thought I’d only daydream about when I started out as a backing singer in a post-new romantic club band wearing too much blusher. NONE of these things have made me rich, and they haven’t all been as successful as i’d have liked, but they’ve all made me happy and proud. In the past i’ve been guilty of spending too much time worrying and lamenting about things in my career that don’t work out or that go tits-up, but lately I’ve realised how important it is sit back appreciate the really good stuff (must be the yoga, dear). It’s good for the soul and it keeps me doing what I do. (Of course, It’s more important to be a decent, caring person who does good in the world, but as i’m quite horrible i’ll stick to my career highlights). Here goes…
The next one is to finish writing my musical and to get that on stage. I s’pose I’d better get a move on with that one or i’ll be watching it from a wicker bath-chair with a blanket over me.
So…What’s your good stuff?
