I can’t tell you how excited I am about this post.
So, a bit of history. Jaymay has been one of my absolute (and I mean all time) favourite artists for a couple of years now. I can’t remember how I discovered her music, but I’m thrilled I did. She is brilliant.
When Caroline spoke to me about me contributing to her charity collection 100 RPM – stories inspired by music (more on that here) (click here for the US page) using one of Jaymay’s songs as a starting point for my story ‘Two Minutes’ (which I read here) was a pretty obvious choice. (I used Rock, Scissors, Paper, because I love it).
A couple of weeks ago, Jaymay was kind enough to have a chat with me. We spoke about writing and creating and being writers and hard work, and words, and loads of other cool and interesting stuff. She was brilliant and I was – Well, I was nervous if I’m honest.
And here it is. Our conversation. I hope you enjoy it. I know I certainly did. Just hit play…
Here’s Rock, Scissors, Paper, in all its glory (with added dancing).
And here’s Jaymay herself, showing you how to play it.
Do have a listen.
A huge thanks to Jaymay for coming on here and, as always, a huge thanks to you for reading.
And, speaking of reading, this is me reading ‘Two Minutes.’
And the trailer to the brilliant Happythankyoumoreplease.
