I’m the kind of person that likes to make lists. I LOVE lists! If I had a penny for each one, I’d be a bajillionaire! I’m not sure how much money that is, but basically, I’d have a lot of money.
I also tend be the person that leaves my grocery list at home when I’m headed to the store. It’s a fun game I like to call “can you remember everything We needed.” Even if I walk EVERY aisle of Publix (or Target), I’m liable to forget something.
I’ve had this refrigerator pad for a little while, and thought it was a perfect place to write down new song ideas. Sometimes, I’ll use the notepad app on my phone, but I tend to forget about them, just like my grocery list. This is why I prefer pen and paper.
Not only am I starting a list of ideas, but I’m starting to become a more avid reader, at least that’s the goal. Books open the imagination chamber in your mind to endless possibilities! I just finished The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, started In the Garden of Beasts, and recently ordered Unbroken so that I can jump right into the story when I’m done!
My song idea list started only a few days ago and I’ve already found myself getting up in the middle of the night to jot something down just so I won’t forget! As I set the paper up to take a picture, I realized that most of the notes sound a little pessimistic. I’ll try to work on some happier tunes!
In a week or two, I’ll have a new video completed (I Hope It’s Not a Train), which has a great back story . Be on the lookout for some new material this summer! I’ll be traveling to Portland, Oregon in July on a mission trip. Visiting new places is grounds for new writing material too!
