I completed the challenge I set out to do about 3 months ago. I wrote 50 songs in 90 days!
|The space and tools I used in writing 50 songs over the past 3 months (Minus my guitar and ukelele!)|
About every 9 days, I had to make sure I had written and recorded 5 new songs. I posted every single one of them up on the 50/90 website. Which is a scary thing to do~ to put something out into the cyber world for others to hear before having a chance to do any editing.
No one said I had to do it that way. But somehow, adding that element to the challenge kept me very accountable that all songs were complete and weren't completely horrible.
Now that the challenge is over, I'm taking down all of those songs for anyone's ears but my own for a while. Perhaps some of them will find their way onto a CD. Who knows? But those raw, naked versions are going to be set to private! I feel like I'm getting to put some clothes back on! And just in time for Fall!
Sometimes finishing a big project feels a little unsatisifying. We can ruin it for ourselves worrying about the "What now?" Well, for me, I know that answer to that question.
I'll start listening to those songs and see if any deem worthy of some re-writing. And I already know there are at least a few. I want to learn a new recording software called Logic, and learn how to use MIDI, so I figure working through some of these songs will be perfect for that!
