I have just begun to write songs... Still not quite with confidence... But with more comfortability.
I have tried my best to be open and honest about my processes and struggles. I want to be a songwriter who writes honestly... Who lives honestly. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this past months daily exercise of pouring out myself daily-- but for as vulnerable as it has been- it's been just as profitable.
I am realizing I am only sketching outlines as I write-- the color, the shading, the depth will be added as we go--- as the music matures.
I do feel slightly more comfortable calling myself a aspiring songwriter. As long as I put 'aspiring' in front of it-- and I hope that will go away eventually. As I continue to grow- and as I continue to write- I will become and am becoming more confident. Bolder.
I have seen the question posted in several places over the last month:
"What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?"
That is a question that quickens the pulse... Dare I even dream that big?
Could chasing this dream give words others have needed to hear? Could chasing this dream prove to be nothing?? I suppose both are possible...
But just in case... I am going to keep chasing it-- and see if I can catch it!
