once upon a date…
Whats uuuuUUUUpp?! How are you? Any summer romances yet?
Well LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY NON-ROMANCE!!
It all started ….last week? I don’t know! But through a series of text messages (FYI text messages don’t count as real communication with potential boyfriends) …I was supposed to go on a date Tuesday night.
We agreed to meet at a nice little place in Tysons. I put on one of my faaavorite dresses, put on some make-up and high-heels….
AND THAT FOOL DIDN’T EVEN SHOW UP!
and he never called or texted after that :*(
WhYYYYyYYYYYY?! I don’t understand what I did to deserve that. What was the lesson there? I’m still figuring it out. :-\
Well anyway— that was my story of the week! HA HA HA! It has no moral. Just be careful out there ladies! Try, try again. . .
I participated in a great webinar yesterday by the one and only Brent Baxter! He has a great blog that I subscribe to for songwriting tips! —>manvsrow.com
The webinar topic was “Finish Your Song! Overcome Creative Roadblocks”. He shared many similar tips that I’ve already shared with you. Here are two of my favorite tips:
“Let Your Title Write Your Song”
That means look at your title and let it tell you how your song should sound! If it is a funny/quirky title then let the song have a funny/quirky feel to it, as opposed to sad one.
and my most FAVORITE tip of the night was
“How Would _____ Write This?”
Think of your favorite artist…how would they sing the song? What kind of lyrics and feel would they use?
(just don’t actually copy their lyrics and melody) This is similar to when I talk about Songspiration…using another song to help push your writing along and get the juices flowing.
So, yup! That was an awesome night of learning, woohoooo! If you’re interested in more of Brent’s tips he has a book called “Finish Your Song! 20 Ways to Overcome Creative Roadblocks”. You can find it on Amazon.
