One thing I am really looking forward to is having my lyrics finally set to music. I want to be able to see if they can work with music and feel the same as when I read them.
I wonder how much editing will be involved? Will it require a massive rewrite with lots of cutting and editing? Do they flow rhythmically like they do when I read the words? Do they tell the story and conger images in the listener’s mind?
I have never had the experienced of having my words set to music and hope to someday hear my words set to a moving piece of music. I want to be able to say to myself I wrote that and it works. I think I would find that as satisfying as contributing musically.
Writing words to someone’s music would be another challenge that I am sure I would enjoy working on as well.
I just need to keep writing just like I need to keep practicing drums. And like practicing drums I can see my improvement with each piece that I write.
But I need to keep doing it. Just like some days I have to push myself to write these posts. I need to maintain the habit.
In fact this one started out just as something to keep the daily writing discipline going. Now it’s turned into a post. It’s a short one, but it’s a post.
