The day is HERE and the time is NOW! So excited to share this track with you - it's been in the works for more than a year! Featuring Eric George on drums, and Jesse Prentiss on bass, this is a song that uplifts & inspires - so SHINE ON!
Okay, here are the clips from July 13 & 14th's songs! I've been distracted, lately, because lots of decisions being made about my kids school year, and my part-time teaching situation is a thing, too, but still - week 2 songwriting is complete!
I need to schedule days of the weekfor livestreaming, or I find they fall by the wayside completely... During week 2, look for a livestream weekly schedule & catch some short sets on my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & YouTube accounts!
I've gotten worse at the mile-per-day thing! Week 2 will see an attempt to up the mileage JUST ENOUGH to make up for days missed (by end July, I'm determined to average 1 mile per day, even if the active times are inconsistent ;)
Where I'm still PERFECT is on the SONGWRITING!! *dances around in victory* What really helped keep this moving along during week 2 is the 5-in-5 Songwriting Challenge group by Sarah Spencer on Facebook! If you're a songwriter (pro, hobbyist, or "thought-about-it-once-what-do-i-do-now"), I can't recommend a group like this enough! Check out the group and see when the next challenge happens. You won't believe the songs that can be spun into existence in a day when you make it fun & pressure-free (as in: "it's okay to suck - not every tune needs to be perfect" ;) )
I'm still writing a song a day! Haven't missed one since July started :) The mile-on-foot still tends to be a one-day-on for 2 miles, and one-day-off, but I'll keep working on that part ;) Gonna venture into YouTube live and Twitter Live this week (because I've never gone live on either of those! Although I did try out Periscope when it first started, but...)
I'm planning a full livestream concert in August to debut the favorite songs from this month's challenge (yours and mine)! Want to get full-length song access, and have a vote for top songs on the concert? SUBSCRIBE today & you're IN!
Because of the holiday yesterday, I'm combining 2 check-ins into one! I admit that I skipped the mile on foot yesterday, but did 1.7 the day prior and 1.99 today to makeup for it :)
Also, I'm amending my livestream challenge - daily was feeling tedious and it was hard for people to catch them all SO - I'm committing instead to a weekly livestream (with a possibility of more) instead.
