M is for Memoir/Music Manuscript

Mama mia! The massive and mean A to Z machine marches merrily along on M-Day. It moves minute by minute with a mixture of mediocre and masterful minions and messengers. It's the mid-way mark! Mazel Tov! 

Ever wondered what books would say if they had the chance to express themselves/air their views?

Well, you are about to find out!

All illustrations are by the talented Mary-An. Check out her website HERE

And now you get to play along! What do YOU think these two books want to tell us? Post it in the comment section below. Have fun!

 At the end of the challenge, between 02nd and 05th of May, I'm going to announce my favourite "book comment" which will be the one that resonates with me the most!

A REMINDER: the IWSG site will have a corresponding post for each letter/day of the A to Z Challenge so do stop by.

On the Facebook page, a thread will be started for the "letter of the day" and we'd LOVE you to share your A to Z post links on the daily thread – this saves YOU time scrolling through links on the master A to Z sign-up list, especially since people post at different times… some MAY skip letters… dead links etc.

One last thing – don't forget to visit those who stop by your blog!

    Memoir: My subjective truth about everything I've endured will amaze and inspire you. Sit back and enjoy.

    Music: What can't I do? Soothe, motivate, inspire, flash back, commemorate, celebrate. I make you feel alive.

    Memoir: The words I hold in my womb will move you to tears at the same time they will inspire you.

    Music: I can make you sing, dance and sway to my words.

    I know its a bad attempt Michelle, but I just could not think of anything at the moment.

    I think they'd bicker over who would enrich lives more. ^^
