|the necessary tools for songwriting (for me, anyway!)|
It's funny how this random, online challenge lights a fire under my booty. I've written 21 songs in 31 days that did not exist in the world before. I think that is pretty cool.
What I've learned, and relearned, each time I've participated in this challenge, is that as impossible as it seems, I really can churn out a large amount of songs in a short period of time by simply planting myself in my room, putting a guitar in my hands and just screwing around. It's really fun, and not painful at all. In fact, whatever the opposite of painful is, that's what it is!
|part of what most days look like for me|
I think perhaps it's so un-painful, when I do it in this fast and furious way, because there's really no pressure to write a good song. I know, with absolute certainty, that I'm not going to write 50 good songs in 90 short days. But I have started to believe that with every bad song I write, I'm that much closer to the next good one that's worth keeping!
21 songs down, and only 29 more to go. And 57 more days to get there...
