Happy Monday and welcome back! Over the past few days, I've found myself back at songwriting for the first time since August of last year. And as I haven't completely stopped writing since then, nothing has felt quite formed enough to be an actual song until now. But it was while attempting to piece together this new song that I have slowly started realizing how much my songwriting is beginning to change. It's always been this sort of safe and recognizable process, and yet now I find it becoming something else. It's the first time this has happened since I started writing songs with lyrics around four years ago. In music, you can never be entirely sure where you'll be led next. I've never felt any need before now to change my songs or branch out that much, but now it's happening on its own. And as I'm both excited and also nervous about it, I mainly feel ready for something new. Over the past couple of years, it's almost as though my songwriting has been slowing steadily.
The gaps between writing have always been long but lately, it's been nearly six months separating songs. I love writing, but it's been so much harder of late. So I have no problem going with a little change. I'm hoping to put up a new song in the coming months and looking forward to it possibly bringing a new feel to my music. Change can be a weird and difficult thing, but sometimes it's best to just go with it. I'm trying to follow that more heading into 2018. Anyway, that might be all I've got today! Apologies for the shorter posts lately. Hopefully, Friday's will be back to a more normal length. Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful week, stay safe, and be kind.
