Article Grouping

You can find my articles below in no chronological order. As a whole, I aim at remaining innovative in relation to my own interests, my multicultural family, and life events (bluntly said, not copy my neighbor next door). I am writing from the West Coast of Canada, the best place I have ever lived. B.C. is already deep in my heart.

Dear 2020: I am in love, I am healthy, I have fun. I have a career who challenges me, expectations to meet, and goals to reach. I thrive to be better than yesterday and not mishandle situations. I discern what passionates me and what doesn’t. Long may it continue.

Stay safe, be nice, and all the best in your own endeavors.

  • Reply to Melanie: Postgraduate study is hard (communication and teamwork. project management. data analysis. independent thinking. critical thinking. problem solving). They don’t teach you stress management. If you visit Paris in August, know that all Parisians are gone on vacation so the city has a great vibe because you feel like you have it to yourself. But be aware that lots of shops and restaurants are closed then. Mylene, wherever you are right now is exactly where you should be.

  • You have always used a kid-friendly language except this time when a guy was inappropriate to you. I always admire you from afar and look forward to the day I will be able to meet you in person. It will be such a rare privilege for me.

  • I have always wanted to go to Paris some day, I will have to make it there! whenever I look at your kind of personality, it makes me want to visit Paris so badly — even if it’s just once. i have started taking steps towards it anyway until COVID came and interrupt my plans.

    I want to learn a second language. Thinking of going for French and Spanish. The two languages don’t look like one that will be an easy ride. People told me Fench and Spanish are the hardest languages to learn. I wish I could do what you do.

  • I read your review with SongWriter, and I must say it is one of the most comprehensive any budding or aspiring songwriter will ever need. I respect your eloquence a lot and your experience in the industry even make it more amazing. You are a rare gem, Mylène.

  • What actually brought me to know Mylène was at the time I was looking for a way to write better lyrics for my songs. I read your article about “tips for writing creative lyrics”, and that has been a game-changer in my career. Now, I have writing good songs over the year and many people now consult me to write for them. I bless the day I found you, Mylène.

  • I want to rent a van and take a year off. Thinking of making it to Paris. What time of the year would you advise I do that? I learned a vacation in Paris is always heaven on earth experience.

    • Hi Jeffery, thank you for commenting. It sounds like fun! Christmas in Paris is simply magical, in my opinion. The season leading up to Christmas is a beautiful time in Paris that can offer the ideal scenery for a romantic vacation or a special holiday with the family. In case there was a misunderstanding, I would like to clarify that I am not originally from Paris, I stayed in the capital of France at different times of the year and I kept sweet memories from every trip. I hope I have answered your question!

  • Wow! How were you able to bring all of these articles together? It brings back the old sweet memory of Tunedly to me. My music career would have still be in the baby stage of not for Tunedly. It shaped me and helped me found my feet in music production. It was – and still is a great and creative innovation.
