I've been working on some song ideas I've had for a while
and it feels great to just sit down and actually put them
together. It's amazing the amount of distractions that come
up vying for my attention when I'm trying to focus on this.
Sometimes I feel this impulsive desire to go to the woods
with a guitar, notebook and tape recorder for 6 months
straight. I'm not quite doing that (yet) but am trying to
schedule in more time for writing. You can't really schedule
in inspiration but songwriting is like any craft and
scheduling it in helps make it actually happen. Instead of
not happening. Right?
