Hey, everyone! Didn't quite make it to 50/90 last year, but I'm giving it a go again. I've done FAWM twice and came away with "wins", which really just means I threw away the internal editor and let the thoughts flow. I'm sassy, honest, and sarcastic, so that often means a NSFW rating. I love to swear, so if it offends you, this is probably the wrong page to be on.
I've actually spent the past few years healing many aspects of my soul and life, including my relationship with music. I'm finally figuring out who I am as a musician, not who anyone thinks I am or should be... and it's awesome!!! I'm finding my own way to "take that rage, put it on the page, take the page to the stage and blow the roof off the place", but that doesn't mean everything I write is autobiographical, Sometimes it's just a story.
NOTE: Comments regarding length of song and "are you going to put music with that?" are a waste of time. I don't care if my songs are ever on the radio, so I make them as long as I want them to be. As for music, it's me and an iPod voice memo app. If I get any better with the guitar and/or ukulele (hasn't happened in two years, sooooo...), they may make an appearance, but you'll need to use your imagination otherwise!
Last but not least, I'm going to leave you with this quote by Dave Grohl, who has influenced my life more than he may ever realize and who I really hope I have the opportunity to thank in person one day: "I was supposed to just join another band and be a drummer the rest of my life. I thought that I would rather do what no one expected me to do. I enjoy writing music and I enjoy trying to sing, and there's nothing anyone can really do to discourage me."
Let's find 90 ways to do what no one expects us to do and don't let anyone discourage you. Rock on!!!
Note #2: CB, if you find this page and even THINK of sharing it with anyone, I will channel my inner Mafiosa, drag you to the banks of the Potomac, kneecap you, and leave your carcass for the fishies, yaknowwhaddamean? I'm glad we had this conversation.
