Be Ready to Learn and Enhance Your Writing Skills

Write with a lyrical heart…..

SongSmith


Songwriting News

We make use of our mind to relay our feelings, to pass on what we are suggesting. Writing lyrics makes use of numerous elements of our mind; not only our feelings. For instance:

  • Awareness
  • Imagination
  • Education
  • Assessment
  • Study and Impartiality

You can enhance the expertise of your lyric writing and discover new methods of expressing yourself. As you gain knowledge, you naturally set up a tool kit which you utilize to articulate yourself.

Writing Lyrics Efficiently

Some songwriters and lyricists think that formalizing the building as well as utilization of a songwriters’ toolkit will in a way lower the validity of the formed lyrics; however, this is short sighted.

The reason is that to begin with, lyricists already implement a lot of skills which they gained knowledge of in a formal way, such as writing and reading.

You are going to have gained knowledge of the essentials of language, how…

She Writes with Spirit

happy writer of poetry

On my day off on Saturday, I put my car into the garage for its MOT test and whilst I was waiting on the results of the test I headed into the local coffee shop for a nice warm breakfast and a lovely cup of coffee.  It was snowing outside and I was all cosy sitting next to the glowing woodburner whilst drying off.  I wrote 8 poems during that time, the words just flowed out of me, it felt beautiful, it felt right.  Here is one of them for you:

She Writes with Spirit

She writes with spirit,
And passionate charm.
When her mind is free,
It releases all harm.
There is no pain,
In a purposeful thought.
An alignment of values,
Gives such a lot.
Her point is wise,
Her words inspire.
To capture all hearts,
This is her desire.
So she keeps on musing,
Whenever she can,
Like the oxygen she breathes,
Over the distance she ran.
She creates from space,
To feed her soul.
And continues this journey,
It makes her feel whole.

White Space

white space poetry

The miracle of white space is so magical it can be filled with anything, anything you want it to be filled by, anything….because I believe anything is possible my friend!!  This next poem is for you:

White Space

White space,
Speaks volumes inside.
Pages of hope,
Thoughts to confide.
To fill the blank,
To listen from within.
Changes the dimension,
Trophies the win.
Cast your eye,
Over the light.
Let it bring out your star,
Delivering dreams tonight.

The Coffee in her Cup

coffee in her cup

I love sipping a cup of coffee, watching the world go by and getting lost in writing poetry, I just love it. This is is for you.

The Coffee in her Cup

The coffee in her cup,
Ignites a letter.
Full of wisdom,
Inspiring to be better.
People take part,
In her unknown song.
Like mystical wires,
To where we belong.
Does it make sense?
Maybe not now.
But when you read back,
Then you’ll now how.

Creating Space

IMG_3597

Create a little more space for yourself in your life, do some decluttering of your environment, do some decluttering of you – maybe a detox, drink more pure, clear water, go visit the beach, breathe in the freshest sea salty air.  Clear out your mind, clear our your soul, dust away the cobwebs and revitalise your beautiful heart.  Creating space for you will create more space for the goodness to come in, I am sure of it, I believe that, I am living that.

Feel the space, love Clarabelle

Tune In

Love, Clarabelle

Do it with confidence.

Trip of a Lifetime

Take a trip of a lifetime, you know the place you’ve always wanted to go to, plan making that trip now. Even if it takes you 5 years to get there, start planning NOW how you’re going to do it.

Think about how amazing it will be when you get there, see yourself there, having the BEST time of your life, how great does it feel?

Life is made up of experiences, so try your best to have more experiences that take your breath away.

Where do you want to go to?

New York at Christmas Time?
Graceland, to be inspired by the spirit of Elvis?
Route 66, a truly amazing train journey?
San Francisco, to stand close to the Golden Gate Bridge?
Iceland, to watch the stunning Northern Lights?
The snowy Cairngorm Mountains, Scotland?
A luxury world cruise?
Watch the sunset from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town.

WOW, I bet you’re getting really excited, just thinking about it, I know I am. I have been extremely lucky to have been to some of the above places, inspirational journeys that really did take my breath away.

Start making plans today, I see you there and you are having the BEST time EVER.

Little words of inspiration to move you, love Clarabelle

I’m Free

I’m free,
As the air I breathe.
I’m happy,
Like an autumn leaf.
I’m loved,
Like the moon so bright,

I’m smiling,
As my dreams come true.
I’m here,
Always believing in you.

Touched by Emotion

Touched by emotion,
Loving life.
Freeing my spirit,
From worry and strife.

Keeping it together,
Hoping for all.
Rising faith,
Breaks down the brick wall.

In the twist of the wind,
No enemies appear.
All friends together,
Filled with good cheer.

An unfulfilled heart,
Takes you beyond.
Frozen miracles,
Reflected in the pond.

Catch the light,
Let it shine all around.
Mystic and magic,
Will soon be found.

Sprinkles of Dreams

Sprinkles of Dreams

They sparkle,
I smile with delight.
Loving hands,
Glowing in the light.

They tell a story,
Of hope and truth,
Like the charming spirit,
Of a child’s fairy tooth.

They touch another,
A soft gentle caress,
Washing away problems,
Sorting out the mess.

And glistening in my palm,
The miracle dust holds,
Sprinkles of dreams,
As my passion unfolds.

I Didn’t Know This!!

IMG_3575.PNG

I didn’t know it, I honestly didn’t know this, for the best part of my life, I didn’t know this……I just didn’t.

Well, what is it, that I didn’t know?

I didn’t know that I could write, I didn’t know that I would want to write, I didn’t know that I was passionate about writing, until I started writing.  I mean really started writing, regularly, consistently and being inspired to write on this blog.

It’s not that I didn’t write before, sure I’ve wrote many policies and procedures, I’ve written University Assignments, I’ve written Board Reports, I’ve written Client Summary Reports but and I mean a BIG BUT, to me, although they obviously were writing, they weren’t freedom writing, they weren’t my heart speaking and flowing with inspiring graciousness.

So to me there is “writing” and there is “real writing” and I am now captivated in the latter.

I am 41 years young now and I started this Clarabelle Blog at the age of 38, wow, has it really taken that long for me to hear my calling, for me to really truly listen to the whispers of my heart??  WOW!!

I guess it has…………………..and you know what, it doesn’t matter when in life you discover what your calling is, what’s more important is that you respond positively and do what your heart is telling you to do and in my case, I guess, it is writing……writing like this, yes, just like this, nothing too fancy, nothing too wordy, keeping it simple but full of inspirational wisdom with a poetic verse thrown in for good measure.

Isn’t life kinda funny, one minute you think you’re headed on one path and all of a sudden, something happens and you’re nudged up another path (notice I said “up” not “down”)!!  Cos we’re on our way up here, right!!

I wonder what your heart is whispering to you…..I wonder?  Do you wonder, or do you know the answer already to that one?  I really hope you do and you are acting upon it.

Lots of love to you today, as always, Clarabelle

Experience Life

A Good Life

A good life can give you all the stability and certainty you need….that I feel, maybe a staple foundation for a good life…..you know, you have a safe and secure routine and it kinda works out alright for you – I know this because I’ve been there…..for 20 years I had a good life like that.

A Great Life

A great life, a super duper amazing life, may often give you much less of the above – less stability, less certainty, less security however for me, this great life offers so much more, more excitement, more freedom, more creativity, more time for myself, more love for what I do, more giving, more sharing, more authenticity, more surprises, more adventures, more new experiences, more new people, more fun, more exploration……wow, the list goes on.

A Gamble

So today I gamble my “good life” for a “great life” and you know what, it really is working for me right now. It was a brave step forward but I know in my heart of hearts it was definitely the right thing to do for me. Not everyone sees it that way but this is MY LIFE and I have to live it and experience it my way…..the great way!!

Are you living a “good life” or a “great life”?

I trust you know the answer to this one immediately.

Lots of love to you, Clarabelle

Who is this Woman?

Poetic moments from my poetic heart to you.

Who is this Woman?

Who is this woman?
With dreams for the taking.
What is she doing?
What is she making?

She talks of big plans,
And all things good.
She always shines,
In a positive mood.

Why is she writing?
Like she’s talking to me.
Building me up,
Taller than a tree.

Will she tell us?
When her desires show.
Moving from her soul,
And her spirit do flow.

I like her a lot,
This woman on a mission.
Encouraging my heart,
Retrieving my vision.

So I guess I’ll listen,
And set my goals too,
This woman is an Angel,
She lives inside of you.

Fairytale Ending

Do you believe in Fairytale endings?… I certainly do, you’ve got to. You’ve got to believe that everything you are working towards on the pathway to your dreams is going to manifest just the way you want it to or even better than that.

Your Fairytale ending is the ultimate vision you want for your future, even if it only feels like a whisper in the wind at the moment. Keep digging, keep trying, keep putting the right energy out there and something’s got to catch, like a ripple effect on the water, only this ripple is connected to your Fairytale ending.

See your reflection in the lake, see it as a mirror image of the person you are becoming, your future self dancing joyfully in your Fairytale ending.

Do something today to get you closer to your dreams…….keep up the great work and never stop putting in the effort that you need to put in until you get there.

Do you believe in Fairytale endings? I do. 🙂

Happy days, Clarabelle

When Will You Get There?

Let me tell you something, I was thinking about this, only this evening. If you’re looking for the end, if you’re wanting the process to “hurry up” then whatever it is that you are doing, may not be for you.

I write to you, everyday I write, I never look for the ending, I never think, when is this piece of writing going to end. The reason being is that I love it so much, love never wants to end, it’s continuous it’s unbreakable, the bond only gets stronger.

So if you’re looking into the distance and questioning, when will you get there…….maybe you have to change the question…….and if you have to change the question, then I guess you already know the answer.

Never ever will I stop writing to you, because even when my soul has passed on to another dimension, my spirit still shines in you, the reader and this then inspires you…..and the light continues to shine on.

You may only be one candle, but this one candle, has the power to light up the Universe.

Please remember how empowering you can be.

Light up your world and you light up the world of everyone around you.

I see your light, love Clarabelle

Inner Inspiration

At the moment I do 3 blog posts per day and people ask me where I get my inspiration from to write those articles and keep it up. Let me tell you something, I have no challenge at all with being inspired to write, I could write to you all day everyday, it would always be a joy for me. I know writing is for ME, I just love it, I never ever get tired of writing to you, for you and for me. Writing keeps me going, writing on this blog to you inspires my soul and uplifts every part of my being. I can write at any time of the day, inspiration is always there……it’s never ending.

I know creative writing is definitely ME, I live and breathe it with my passionate heart.

I have amazing, fabulous plans going forward that will allow me to write even more and more and more…….so my beautiful friend, watch this space, watch how this all flourishes before your very eyes.

I love having you here, I really do and I’ll never stop writing to you for I know in my heart this is ME.

Love Clarabelle,

PS: Staying committed to the dream, I trust you are too. 🙂 IMG_3447.JPG

Oprah Winfrey’s Hands

In a previous blog post last week, I wrote a poem about Oprah Winfrey reading my book, this is what I want. I moved forward with this desire last week and posted to Oprah Winfrey a copy of my Amazon book, “Clarabelle’s Musings”.

I researched into 3 addresses to send it into Oprah Winfrey, so, yes you’ve guessed it, I sent a copy of my book to each of the 3 addresses – it could be in her hands, right now, as we speak.

I really do believe this is a book that Oprah Winfrey will absolutely love, I truly do and I guess if it’s meant for her to read she will definitely get the opportunity to read it, the Universe will make sure of that.

I shall keep you posted on developments, it may be 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 years, but let’s just see what happens.

I hope that you will take some encouragement out of this blog post for yourself, I hope it inspires you to take your dreams one step further.

Happy days to you, love Clarabelle.

Champion Heart

Remember this, you have a champion heart, yes you, I feel its strength, I see its purpose and it’s ready to take on the world. Here’s a poem for you, just about that:

Your Champion Heart

Your champion heart,
Is beautiful to see.
So special and true,
A passion to free.

It’s bursting with pride,
With a forever smile,
Stronger than an ox,
Mile after mile.

No matter the path,
That you are on,
Your willing attitude,
Is where you belong.

So hold on tight,
Because excitement is ready.
To lift you higher,
Go rock steady.

A winning love,
A happy ever after.
You are the one,
Sing out with laughter.

Creativity is the Key

Position yourself into a “create” mindset, by “creating” you’re setting your imagination free. Imagination is the starter key to your success, because everything starts there first.

Yes the whole process takes a lot of commitment, time, energy and effort but if it’s something you’re really passionate about that will never stop you. Nothing will stop the passionate heart…..believe me, nothing!!

I am living and breathing my passionate heart and I will never stop…..never because I believe in what I am creating.

Share your dreams with the world by creating what’s in your imagination. Your imagination is the genius of all geniuses……do the work and make it happen for you.

Stay determined my friend, love Clarabelle

Writing Mood

I really love it when I am in a writing mood, it can happen to me at any time of the day and when it does I just have to capitalise on it, as best I can. This moment is now, suddenly I have an enthusiastic urge to write and I just have to do it. Here is a little poem to you from this happy mood moment:

Creating My Tomorrow

Fluffy and white,
Like cotton wool.
Clouds in the breeze,
Air fresh and cool.

Snowy moments,
A blanket of space.
Tranquil surroundings,
A different place.

Making it happen,
Hopes and dreams.
Fill up my corner,
Rainbow beams.

Moonlit skies,
Are pretty and pink.
Soft melting colours,
Make me think.

Time is not here,
I am at one.
Always myself,
Smiling at the sun.

No questions to answer,
For I know what’s true.
Creating my tomorrow,
In today what I do.

Experiencing life,
Embracing this treasure.
Loving the journey,
Surprised with pleasure.

Be Open to this Understanding

Sometimes in life we want to be a little shut off from the world….like having “temporary me” time, to give ourselves time to adjust, adapt, heal, plan, write, reflect…..or whatever that needs to be.

It is important to recognise when you need that time and not to feel obliged to expose it. When you are ready you will and not before then….this is valuable “me time”. It’s okay if others find it strange to understand at first, it’s better for you to “seek first to understand before being understood”, than the other way about. See it from their perspective first…..it will free your mind up to continue to focus all your energies on you.

If this is you, and/or you are in need of some “space” and some precious “me time” make sure you have it…….it will be good for your soul and you will re-emerge out of your cocoon with renewed energy and a fresh perspective on life.

Be open to this understanding and it will help you every step of the way.

Soon you’ll be flying……soon my friend, believe that. 🙂

Much love to you, Clarabelle

What Chapter Are You On?

Imagine you have a book of your life, what chapter is today on? Is it the beginning of a new chapter or is it the start of a new page. Are you telling a positive story or is it somewhat more challenging?

Reflect on your life as it is today and get prepared to fill in the future blank pages…..what do you want the pages to say about your life going forward?

My future pages are filled with love, happiness, adventures, exploration, new discoveries, exciting experiences and the achievement of passionate aims….I see myself super healthy, wealthy and forever happy and I am inspiring people all over the world with my creativity.

Go on create today your successes of tomorrow….see that for yourself now and feel how good that feels.

I see your book on the shelf and I want to read it. 🙂

Looking forward to hearing all about it soon.

Love Clarabelle
