Balance hell, I've had it
Okay, last time I talked about balancing work and songwriting. I'm probably not the best one to get insight on that one. I just gave notice at work for a number of reasons. One was that it sucked the life out of me so much that I just wouldn't feel creative. I worked so hard the last year to keep the creative side (that makes me feel so good) in the forefront. Other factors too for sure that I won't go into, but here in a week or so I'll be unemployed, poor and happier. We'll see where this goes, but I plan to really get down to it again.
Now, I sure didn't stop writing and working on songs, but I certainly scaled back. At any rate, another page in life and we'll see where it goes. I did a review of a newer song last week with Sara (co-founder of SongU) and it was simply great insight from a professional perspective. I made some changes and will review now with another successful songwriter later this week and see where we stand.
As I look back at my growth over the past year, I'm pretty amazed and feel like I'm getting closer to the ballpark I want and need to be in to get some songs covered. I'm hoping to get about 3 or 4 ready to take to a demo studio and/or kill it in mine. Right now I'm thinking get someone else to do it and see how that lands.
