An ode to serenades & marinades!
Is it just me or does anyone else feel it’s long overdue that we need some Fall-themed Holiday Songs? The ode to serenades & marinades of Fall, we’ll call it!
No. No? No.
Darn it. No one jumping onto that bandwagon, eh?
FINE. *rolls eyes
But, with so much to do!
skipping happily into my office, with lyrics to write, and my loving book projects to wrap up, and my favorite time of here with NaNoWriMo’s impending arrival, it’s only fitting to – Nope. Don’t do it. Oh, the ode to the serenades of Editing, reading and staying the course of all my line item marinades. *insert piano playing plus a warble here
*she did it. Focus, girl.
My joy of fall
truly just wouldn’t begin without the exciting news of writing my next album. So, no pressure, but I have the goal of getting it done before Preptober. Don’t you got books to write, bish!
Now, who knows if that’ll be possible, but I believe in tackling a little each day and eventually it’ll get there. Once a groove is playing along, it’ll happen. I’m rapid fire-like that. *wink The first couple of tracks always seem to be the hardest. Although, channeling all that emotion is pretty rough too.
Wish there was a way to do it sans THAT roller coaster! Sadly, there isn’t.
Did you just pun. Ah, yes. Yes, I did.
In all essences of productivity, and in all honesty though, must confess that I was a bit distracted this last week. I was not sleeping well. There were incessant, racing thoughts. Lest not forget, the half-heartedly act of convincing yourself – okay, geesh, MYself – that it’ll all be fine…
is a fairly tall order.
(Reminds me of a song I wrote a few years back.)
A ghostly shell of yourself walking around, daydreaming of… you know, things past, present and future. *sigh* And anyway… You know how it goes.
Just to notate how writing songs can sometimes keep these pains lingering. I mean, I guess it can be therapuetic; although reliving trauma over and over probably isn’t healing. *is that numbness?
Which, in one part fairness, and bits of reflection confetti… are GREAT WRITING CONDITIONS.
Maybe when I get to the end of this bucket of chicken staring back at me, it’ll change. *hand over the marinade! This needs more flavor!
*slaps forehead Put down the wings. You better get writing, girl!
So get to it, lady… get out of the weeds!
You had to know I was taking this somewhere!
The next three weeks, I am publishing a songwriting music series on how to get a song from idea to sold! We’re going to call it:
THE HOW TO MUSIC VIDEO SERIES
We’re going to chunk this series down into three installments.
- How to write a song
- How to record a song
- How to publish a song
Since it is all things serenades & marinades of my favorite time of year, fall, and I just happen to have some A and B Roll in the vault from literally two years ago and it’s staring at me, asking me “why, oh Lovely Rita, haven’t you shown me to the world?” (I hope you added a southern drawl -channeling your inner Gone With The Wind character – when you read that! Because, I sure as heck did!
*You raised your hand to your head too… didn’t you.
Why, yes, kind stranger, I surely did!
So, here we go! For the next three weeks, I am going to cover just that. *Terrible accents?
Ha. Ha. Noooooo…
I am going to show you an easy, and simple way to getting your song idea out of your head and into the marketplace. If you’ve ever wanted write a song – regardless, if you play an instrument or not – I got you! This week we start with the 3 simple way to writing that song and boy, oh boy, it will be easy!
Now, get ready!
Grab your notebooks!
Snatch up those pencils!
Go write a song!
