Composing

I am so proud of myself! Over the past several years, I’ve fallen out of the habit of writing and producing music. I’ve really been focused on practicing and improving my piano and voice skills, at the expense of being creative. While I wouldn’t call it a New Year’s Resolution, I’ve decided that it’s time for me to get back to being creative. Not only because my spirit longs for creative expression, but also because at times like these, having some residual income would be a TERRIFIC thing! So, I’ve decided to devote 1 hour per day to writing. As with any other discipline, writing is something that must be practiced on a regular basis. I’m determined to recreate a habit of writing and producing music. I started today! I gave myself the assignment of writing something to completion in an hour, and I did it! It may not be the most amazing piece of music ever (notice that I’m not sharing it…), but I’m so glad I TRIED! Step one…check! : >

It's all about the conscious use and management of time, isn't it?

I hope you're fully recovered from the Flu. So many of my friends quite aren't over the nagging "leftovers" from the flu.

Glad to see you're setting time to write. After wearing so many differ hats in a day, it's frustrating knowing that we must add another one or two each day. You're doing it so congrats to you.

Take care of YOU!!!
