The first few days of August was revitalizing for me. I needed that time to think and dream. I learned that I want to write a screenplay and do some songwriting. I plan to work on a screenplay and some songs for fun – for now. Haha. Who knows what the future holds!
I have no real plan for any of my ideas. I just want to do it and see what happens. My love of music always had me wondering if I could be a songwriter. It is not something I ever thought to pursue in a serious way. When I was a child I just wanted to be a professional dancer. I loved music. I was obsessed with music but never tried to learn any instruments other than clarinet. I played clarinet for four years. I enjoyed it but abandoned it after those four years. Unfortunately, I have never attempted another instrument. I think learning piano might at least help with songwriting but I’m not sure. I don’t know how to read music very well. My contribution would be the lyrics and someone else can do the arrangements even though I can hear notes in my head. Maybe one day I will be able to find someone who can translate the notes in my head into an actual song. It’s an idea.
The Pandemic just put all of my crazy projects into Full Go Time mode! I have several projects in my head but turning ideas into something real is very difficult. My plan is to see where things stand in December. This post wasn’t really to convince you I’m doing anything serious with my ideas. Instead, I want to encourage others to take the leap. I think many of us used the Pandemic to explore new opportunities. I will likely not provide an update on the songwriting since it’s just a fun hobby for me. I don’t want to be a professional. Yet, I’m sure there are things people do to go into Full Go Time mode so go ahead and do that.
Take a refresh!
