A Busy Bee

I have been a bit of a busy bee of late. Consequently, I have not had time to blog much. Hopefully the 2 or 3 people who are interested in my thoughts, poetry, or stories will not wander away forever.

Last week I submitted a song I wrote into a music competition. I was very excited since it was one of the best I had written. The judging panel tore me a new one. Boring melody line. Non-specific lyrics. I felt pretty dejected until one of them came up to me later and said that even professionals get it wrong sometimes and that the judges did not have the final say on anything outside of the competition itself.

I rewrote the song and varied the melody a little more. I still need to work on the lyrics but I am encouraged. At my tender age, it is not as if I am expecting to make a new career in songwriting. But it is fun to dream. Who knows? Maybe I'll win the lottery!

A songwriter?? Wow...a whole new side! I've often dreamed of being a songwriter, and actually plan on learning guitar this summer.

I bet we'd be great collaborators

Go, NTM, Go!!!
