I haven’t gotten much writing done lately, and not a whole lot of musicianing, either.

I’ve been on a reading binge.

Reading binges for me are fairly rare. Don’t get me wrong — I love to read — but I simply lack the time between all my warming irons to cuddle up with several books, and sometimes, I don’t have time for even one book… (Try being a librarian and being asked what have you read lately — and having no answer?)

But these last couple weeks? I think I’ve read five books in quick succession, and crazily enough, I’ve been reading multiple books at one time. As evidenced by the reviews I’ve posted, a lot of them have been books on songwriting and musical composition. It feels good to be filling my brain with words. ๐Ÿ™‚

But just because I’ve been putting off writing in favor of reading doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I polished up that short story for that anthology
  • I got on the horn and followed up on another couple submissions
  • I’ve been soliciting gigs — and I even got one for an upcoming fundraiser, making TWO gigs in March. ๐Ÿ™‚

And I think there’s another set of lyrics knocking around in my head; they just haven’t cohered enough to be written down.

They’ll come eventually. Maybe when I’m done reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I find that after a reading binge words come a little easier too me. I think it helps stir my creativity. Glad to see it’s helping you! Can’t wait for more lyrics.
