Welcome to my life.
Something a lot of people don't know about me is that I song write when I have the time. I took a break from it for a while because it frustrated me. I don't play any instruments (except for a little piano), so it can be very hard. Basically, I used to love it and then I realized I sucked, so I just stopped. I recently got back into it though, because even if I don't play an instrument, I can still make myself useful and write lyrics. I've only been song writing for about a year. Before last Sunday, I had only written songs in that entire week (a few written with my best friend-who's-basically-my-sister, Jade). This week I have written . I don't really know what came over me, but honestly `doing my research on Prince was a key factor. Learning that he was such a prolific song writer and that he would write hits in a matter of hours really inspired me. So almost every night this week, I took advantage of not having school and stayed up until almost 1:00 every night writing. (I usually had coffee in the early evening so it would keep me up). The first songs you begin writing are obviously not guaranteed to be hits, which I most definitely learned this week. I pushed through the sucky ones though, and didn't let them discourage me. As i've been writing more and more I have realized that i've begun to noticeably improve. It's very hard for me to write about real stuff in my life, but I've broken through that wall this week. (You're going to say "Of course it's hard to write about your own life, you're only 14!", but there is stuff to write about, trust me. Everyone has their stuff). I have finally learned how to put my own feelings and experiences into words, which never came easy. That is also another reason I think I have improved. Song writing is definitely something I want to continue as I grow, whether it's selling songs or actually recording them. Though some I think I will just keep for myself. All in all, I'm really happy that I've rediscovered one of my passions. Just thought I'd share that with you guys.
