Introduction to the blog and to myself
Hi there, Heloise speaking.
I decided a blog was in order. Why? Well, not only does today mark the publication of my first book, The Art of Being a Little Bit Crazy, and I felt like doing something to commemorate it, but also I realised I have learnt a lot in getting it out into the world and felt others might benefit from my endless—emphasis on the word 'endless'—mistakes.
A little bit about me...
I am a writer and a musician—a stubborn one. I decided to go the lone wolf route of creating and releasing my works and have thus far released two albums and one book, and other things are currently in the works. English-born, I grew up in France but moved back to England when I attempted (somewhat successfully, depending on your viewpoint) university. I then had a short stint in the PR world, which I quit to pursue my artistic endeavours. Quite contrary to the use of the word 'quit' in the last sentence, I am not a quitter—you will learn that about me when I later tell you all about those endless mistakes I mentioned earlier—it's just that it took me a bit of time to work up the courage to give in to what I knew I was meant to do with my life.
A little bit about my blog...
I want this blog to be a place where I can help out creatives but also a place where I can share a bit more information than I can do via a Twitter post. For now I'm thinking insights into the worlds of writing and music, tips and lessons, and a bit of information about what I'm currently up to thrown in. Anyway, let's just see where it takes us...
That's it for now! But I'll be back... **mwahaha**
