2011 resolution #1: record a snippet instead of tweet

January 6th, 2011

Last year I experimented by writing new lyrics everyday in 140 characters or less & tweeting them. It was strange to try to write chronologically and to so publicly post what I would no doubt change for the final version. Frankly, I felt really caged but creativity is said to thrive in constraint. I dunno…I developed some severe writer’s block last year.

So this year, I’m writing for at least 15 minutes a day and recording whatever comes out it. I’ll post it and tweet it if it’s not too horrible and then we’ll see if I should’ve waited for the final version! My goals are getting over shyness, perfectionism, writer’s block and that mean voice in my head that tells me to keep control instead of letting go.

What are you doing this year to stimulate your creativity? Tell me about it!

I wrote today’s snippet called “cold world” under my brand new Seasonal Affected Disorder light box and I think that is pretty obvious when you hear it.

Resolution #2 is to get a music player on the blog, I know this link I’m using is bad user experience 🙁
