Of Nicole Scherzinger & Writing Song Lyrics

By Shelton Bumgarner

I’m extremely bored and am avoiding working on a novel, so pardon me while I ramble idly about Nicole Scherzinger. I really like Ms. Scherzinger. She’s drop dead gorgeous and has a great voice. But oddly enough she hasn’t had the solo success one might expect. She seems like a genuinely nice person who might not freak out because some rando wrote one blog post about her.

Anyway. I like writing song lyrics and I wish there was some way I could write lyrics for her. But I’ve finally realized that the entire industry is designed to prevent people like me from breaking in. But anyway. I pretty good at telling stories in verse, but that’s not my destiny. My destiny is either a novel or being a fashion photographer. Both of those things take time and that’s something I am in short supply of right now.

I’m not getting any younger and I need to stop sitting on my hands and do something, anything to move forward with my life. I think I’m going to at least look into being a bartender, but even that is going to take time to implement for various reasons. If I’ve learned anything in my old age is that no body owes me anything. You have to make do with what you’ve got an move on when it’s obvious you’ve reached a dead end.
