Topic Musicians amongst us, show yourselves!

I picked up guitar lessons my final year of primary school. The lessons where school based and I'll admit I started out of pure selfishness ( I was excused from a much hated duty school, one I won't mention as I don't want to offend anyone) and not out of love of the instrument. However over the years i have come to love the instrument. I self taught my self after 2 years of lessons. Nowadays I still play from time to time and have attempted to song write too. I do fear though that I can't sing and my song writings barley addequite at best.
There also was a old grand piano forever present growing up. Mum always always had people coming in to tune it and fix it despite it never being used. Instead of an 'evil' tutor like some have mentioned I had an evil mother so to say who banned it from it ever being used. She however did play all the time apparently at some time. I only remember her touching it once when I was younger. The memory is clear I remember I woke to the music drifting through the house. When I found the source was her I was shocked and sat there listening for what felt like hours. When she finished I asked why she didnt play more and she said she just looked at me eyes glazdd over and walked away. As I said she never touched it again nor did I broach the he subject.
Topic Can I get an interview with you?

Introduce the title of your story: More than just friends?
Genre/Category: Love stories: kind of lesbian/novel (in that it will have at least 3 parts)
Provide the link:
That is the link to just the 1st part.
1. What first inspired you to write this particular story?
The other Authors here on lush have inspired me to try to write. I hope that it can reflect just a sparkle of talent that some of the other authors on here have, in particular the few who can make it realistic and entrancing even if it is just fantasy.
2. How did you come up with these characters?
There are three characters in this story Violet, Crystal and Matt. All three characters are based upon aspects of my life and my experiences.
Violet: She is based on me in the story so naturally I came up with her by reflecting on my own personality. However she encompasses the shy, caring, loving happy aspects of my personality. These are all things I feel I lack of late so I guess she’s more how I would describe the younger more immature me.
Crystal: She is also characterised by my own self. However I feel she is more characterised by how I am now. That is the hurt, confused, heart broken myself.’
Matt: he is based on my ex boyfriend and my experiences on him. I must say though it is a bias view on men and I apologise if it offends anyone sorry.
3. How does it differ from some of your other stories?
Well this is the 1st and probably only story I shall post on here. Though if I do end up post more I think it will differ in that this story is quite personal. Something I wont do again because I wont lie its difficult to “do” personal so to say.
4. What was the most challenging thing about writing this piece?
Probably getting it to meet my own standards and get it just how I want it to be. All so the grammar and stuff is all so challenging as I am just a novice writer and have not done much like this before.
5. Anything else you want to tell us about it?
Well its probably already pretty apparent but this story is quite personal even if the events are not true. All that it is my 1st attempt ever to do something like this and feedback as I develop the story is much appreciated. Oh and finally watch out for the next parts which are soon to come.
