Catherine’s debut poetry collection¬†The Quarter Life Crisis Poet”

Here we have a collection of poems I wrote between 2010-2015. It’s essentially 25 years of my existence, much of it was filled with pain, disappointments and sorrow. Maybe you can relate? Out of despair, hope can return and happier days can appear. I hope these poems can make you feel less lonely about the pain we all feel inside. Even if you’re facing a Quarter Life Crisis know that you’re not the only one and you will come out of it stronger. *Hugs!* Join me on my journey….

Lord of Bohemia: Melvyn Bragg

This month’s selection is a very dear figure who¬†really touches my heart. Lord Bragg is a beloved British¬†UK broadcaster, ¬†Novelist and reigning¬†Arts doyen.

He’s had a staggering career and many struggles which is why I’m so fond of him, if anybody takes a moment to uncover his past you can’t helped but be moved by him. From¬†humble roots he began as a trainee for the BBC and went on has very candidly discussed his struggles with depression and was a former President of Mental Health Charity MIND.

If you ever get a chance I would highly recommend you watch¬†the talk between Lord Bragg and Joanna Lumley. I bought this series on DVD as individual full episodes cannot be found online. Get yours here. I watched this a couple years ago when things were pretty horrific for me and it always gave me hope that someone who was struggling the way I was not only found relief in the arts but made a career out of it. Rarely would I say someone as a person is admirable but Lord Bragg truly is. When I decided to write about Melvyn on my site I started to cry like Kim Kardashian ugly tears crying¬†that’s how big of an impact he has on me….

Bragg’s article on The Telegraph: British Culture may be our great new industry

“Snobbery still exists, but it is comical or pathetic and no longer has a cutting edge.”

“How would you really describe yourself? I suggest it might be through the type of music you like, the sport you follow, the radio station you listen to, the authors you read, the ballet or the opera or theatre you go to, the soaps or the galleries ‚Äď or a mix of all. The old snakeskin of class falls away when we look at what we really do, or are given half the chance to be as we really want to be.”

The Beautiful & Damned Bohemian: Catherine Vaughan

It felt a most opportune time to present Catherine Vaughan the creator and curator of NouveauBohemian.com¬†as this month’s Bohemian. With her array of artsy and edgy¬†publications from poetry to erotica this blossoming Bohemian talent is sure to be popping up in a quaint coffee shop near you professing her love through her poetic musings and sharing her heartfelt work to fellow dreamers.

In the line up¬†are more poetry events, her forthcoming novel: “Welcome to Wonderland” plus some musical surprises. Vaughan will be delving into the recording arts think Jack Kerouac reading his poems along to Jazz music remixed with¬†Britney Spears/Jessica Simpson. It’s an epic treat in store combining Vaughan’s notorious penchant for mixing the shallow and vain alongside¬†depth and poetry. Only she can pull it off! She may be the only soul on earth to simultaneously appreciate Kim Kardashian and Hemingway and fittingly so as she¬†possesses both their unique talents concurrently¬†in a way no person has before…

Watch out world Catherine Vaughan has come to conquer….

 

 

On Writing + Happiness:

I boldly confess, that I Catherine Vaughan am…. Dare I say it. I am finally in a happy place. “I am ha- huh- HAPPY.” It has taken me my entire life to get to this point. Everything is happening all at once plus I’m ticking off my wish-list at wildfire speed.

Happiness seems¬†a bizarre¬†state to confess it seems at odds with a True Writer’s Life. I can feel the despair crumbling away… Thankfully I’m never out of fictitious ideas to write about which is good I’m still having ideas¬†and it is getting to the point whereby any true hurt to write about is quite simply out of date. It’s weird. It’s good. I know my primary goals is to write fiction but I identify more as a Poet and previously my poems were shattered pieces of my broken heart and soul. But those pieces have been swept¬†away with time. I’ll continue to pick up those¬†shattered glasses, or what remains of them. But I guess it is time for a change and I have to set new writing goals:

  • Poetry to become like story-telling¬†
  • Prose to become more Poetic
  • Fiction to¬†follow the rhythmic sways of Poems
  • All forms of Writing to follow the melodic synchronicity of Song-Writing
