I’ve always had an odd relationship with the craft of writing. On one hand I feel like I’m good at it. I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer or the brightest light on the tree but I don’t feel I’ve ever had any kind of trouble articulating through print. I can talk shop and crack wise and type the sweet every-loving mother fudge out of a work email.
But when it comes to writing stories and plotting out story ideas that I want to pursue I hit the wall. It stops being expression and starts being homework. Taking it that one step further brings out the frustration.
Songwriting comes easy to me. You’re taking ideas and feelings and condensing them to 3 or 4 minutes. And riffs and chords are easy to come up with usually.
I commend anyone that does this for a living because sometimes? Damn. It’s tough. This is just my obstacle to get through. No big thing.
Cuz I got ideas, man. Hopefully I can work through the roadblocks and get something going. Or I may just keep blogging. Who knows? 😉
