Yesterday I shared some personal thoughts here as I often do. Straight-up thoughts - no scenes from a novel, no poem, no lyrics. Just a blog post. But the beauty of that is that it can later be used for any of the above. With conversational lyrics being so popular right now, I was already … Continue reading Expressions Through Art
Her false sense of importance and a lack of genuine love Launched an army to reflect a self-image of being better and above With a stand-in father pretending to be what he could never be I learned the truth from the real man on a mountain top of redwood trees We talked and talked about … Continue reading 50/90 Day 3 (#poem)
Narcissist or Sociopath whatever the name You hid it well your walk of shame Hiding in plain sight with the hero in black The first sign of foobar throwing away the white hat Troubles between us brewing now and then Your secrets and lies spun your little children Like a playground merry go round banging … Continue reading 50/90 Day 2 (#poem)
I've been gearing up for writing 30 poems in 30 days for #NaPoWriMo this April but I've just learned of #CampNaNoWriMo (April version of #NaNoWriMo--Novel Writing Month). Something has got to give! After #FAWM (February Album Writing Month), I've decided that perhaps I should give my ears a break and write a novel and poetry … Continue reading April is Writing Month (#NaPoWriMo #CampNaNoWriMo)
Two of my twelve songs for FAWM didn't have a demo with them - I only time to write the lyrics. So I went back and added the demo I came up with. It's still in rough form but I had a lot of fun with it.
I experienced my first FAWM (February Album Writing Month) this year and going in, I thought it would be like NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month - you post your words but nobody sees them). But for FAWM, the whole point is to write an album and get comments, collab, and connect with other musicians. This … Continue reading Cool Comments on my FAWM Songs
During FAWM, I wrote these poetic lyrics here. And then before the month's end I came up with a demo. It was inspired during Race Week in Daytona with its roots in rum runners with a tribute to those who came before me: musicians, car racing, and rum runners.
I threw myself into FAWM (February Album Writing Month - like what NaNoWriMo is for writers, FAWM is for songwriters) for the first time - I'd only heard about it a few days before the beginning of February. I proved to myself I could sit down at the computer in my music studio and write … Continue reading FAWM Freaked Me Out
Kentucky Flame (FAWM) Songwriting Challenge: No Chorus Lyrics, copyright 2018, Kathy Holmes I searched for an old friend the other day I met him in California in the sixth grade I never expected to find him that way When I saw the obituary of my old Kentucky Flame I remember the day this Kentucky boy … Continue reading Kentucky Flame (FAWM)
My first complete song I posted on FAWM (February Album Writing Month - similar to NaNoWriMo for writers in November), inspired by the opening of the new Edison bar and lounge at Disney Springs. First the lyrics followed by a work tape on SoundCloud: 3 Drinks Later (Dancing with Travolta) Copyright 2018, Kathy Holmes Verse … Continue reading 3 Drinks Later (Dancing with Travolta) (#FAWM)
