On… new writing and new music

Two cool new TV projects dropped in my lap in January, gang.

So obviouslah, I needed some new music to listen to while I’m playing make believe in my head. Writing, for me, starts with daydreaming. And then, if an idea comes, scribbling it – whatever it is; characters, plot ideas, dialogue – down as fast as I can, on paper, on my iPhone, on my hands, inside of book jackets in the middle of the night when I’m too asleep to get some actual paper but too scared of losing the idea, anywhere. Yes, it’s incredibly annoying for the people around me. Where was I? Yes. New music. (Or new old music.)

This is what I’m listening to:

Nana Adjoa – Late Bloomer


Gizzle – Get Loud For Me


The Beatles – It Won’t Be Long


Gin Wigmore – Kill Of The Night


Dum Dum Girls – Coming Down


Electric Six – I Buy The Drugs


The Cure – Close To Me


Gary Clark Jr – Come Together


The Romantics – What I Like About You


Iggy Pop – Candy


Harry Nilsson – One

    Dylan does a stellar job (as it’s his song) playing “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue”. If you like the song, check out Van Morrison’s version.

    Hey Gemma, do you have any new books coming out soon? I just adored ‘The Dating Detox’ and ‘A Girl Like You’, so relatable. I would love to read more from you. Or see these books on the big screen!
