Brown eyed Girl 

Van Morrison

I first heard this when I was fairly young, because my mum's been a fan of his for many years. I remember thinking that it was nice having a song dedicated to a girl with my eye colour. It's been a constant favourite, dipping up and down the list of my favourites, but never quite disappearing.

I've used it to inspire some stories, and actually used some of the lyrics to create a story line a few years back. It always reminds me of summer, and makes me happy every time that I listen to it, regardless how I'm feeling at that moment.

I can't help but smile when I hear this song

"“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.”"

"Writing means sharing. It's part of the human condition to want to share things- thoughts, ideas, opinions.'
"

"“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
"

William Faulkner
