The Long Way (Song of the Day)

Not sure how much more poetry I'll be writing this month. Even yesterday's poem was more song lyric than poem. Besides, I'm rushing to get all of my evaluations done from NSAI before this year’s membership expires next month. So I'm pretty much focusing on songs, not poems or novels. So I'm listening to The … Continue reading The Long Way (Song of the Day)

#NaPoWriMo, #CampNanoWriMo, #LogicProX: Making Tough Choices

The closer it gets to April 1st, the more overwhelmed I am about trying to do CampNano (novel), NaPo (poems), and  LogicProX (music production) classes.

Since I've been pursuing music over the past 4 years, I've been noticing a disturbingly similar trend … Continue reading Is Music the Last Industry to Become Female-Friendly?

Becoming One With Your DAW: Empowering Women in Music Production

I started out with GarageBand and there's something about it being so approachable, especially for females, that really moved me forward in my music production career. And why I post that quote in my header. More women need to be empowered to engage in this male-dominated industry. A few outstanding women who have helped me … Continue reading Becoming One With Your DAW: Empowering Women in Music Production

Grandmother Margaret’s House: Warming up for NaPoWriMo

With NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) approaching quickly (April 1st), I've been reading some new books about writing and getting in the mood to get back to my writing. Why not start with a story about Grandmother Margaret's house in California, so reminiscent of my new house here in Florida. Lying awake at night in … Continue reading Grandmother Margaret’s House: Warming up for NaPoWriMo
