somebody tell the sun to come back! I’m going crayzaaaay!

Howdee there!

Here we are….in DC…in THE RAIN…AGAIN…and it’s still not purple :*(

It’s just cold and stupid. I know you people in Florida and California think this is verrryy funny

:-\ 

I’m getting vitamin D deficient! Well maybe by the time this newsletter goes out, the weather will have resolved itself…and a beach and pina colada will magically appear before me. :) :)


SONGWRITING TIP

What does happiness look like?
Back to imagery! One of the the most important elements of great songwriting. Try describing an emotion with as much imagery as possible.

Happiness…What does it look like for you? Take 10 minutes and free-write using as much sensory input as possible.

…fresh baked brownies, mmm that is what happiness smells like to me. It feels like sinking into a marshmallowy soft bed until 12 on a Saturday, and waking up to a fresh pot of hot coffee. Happiness looks like a wealthy, handsome and entrepreneurial man leading me to his yacht in the moonlight.

WoOPS! ha ha… heh. Hey—happiness looks different for everybody! tee hee!
