So this is unfortunately feeling really similar and repetitive. I really haven’t written anything much. Not even a quick line or anything. I did manage to get at least the lyrics done for my S.A.C. Challenge this week but more on that later.
So yet again, I’ve written little to nothing. It’s not for lack of trying. I tried to find little bits and such but nothing. I hate blaming school but a lot of my energy has been headed there. I think the more time goes on and nothing is being written the more I feel bummed out to write these posts. Admittedly, this lack of writing songs is causing me to kinda dread writing the Monday tracking posts. But I still press on because well it is a part of my grade BUT even beyond that, I can’t get weary because this is when strength is built.
Think of it this way:
When people work out and focus on doing strength training exercises, the muscles are not built and developed really in the first few rounds of an exercise, but when you’re pushing yourself when your muscles are burning and you’re tired. That’s when the strength is built. As far as this task is concerned I have to keep going so that my songwriting muscles can be built. Think the Rock. But with muscles built for songwriting and not wrestling or action movies.
S.A.C. Songwriting & Blogging Challenge 2015 — Week 5
So this week, we were tasked with writing a song for a sync with a TV show. The prompt was focused on writing something similar to a Hozier track and to write darker lyrics with music similar to blusey alt rock bands. I thought I would do much better with this challenge than I did. I mean I tend to write more minor, grittier songs but I think such a specific prompt as the Hozier track threw me for a loop. I didn’t have time to make a demo this week but I finished my lyrics and I’ll link them here. I’m going to try and make a demo over the next week simply to make a demo to have it but I know I’ve missed the deadline.
Anyway, that’s that for this week. We’ve got a lot in store for us next week and what’s really getting me is that my schoolwork also ramps up and my time is feeling more and more squished. I don’t know how I’m going to get it all done nor do I know if I can get it all done. But I can try.
Peace & Harmonies
