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. 🙂
But just because I’ve been putting off writing in favor of reading doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! 😉
- 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. 🙂
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! 🙂
