Only the songs that we know

I love to write.  Wait, let me rephrase that… I love when an idea comes to me and I get the delicate task of putting it into words.  The words I choose to express.  The picture I paint with them.  The hope that I might be able to make someone else really feel what I mean and possibly get it.  That’s the part of writing that I love.  Conveying an idea that maybe nobody’s ever taken the time to consider or capturing a thought they’ve already had and connecting with them.  That’s what my hope is when I blog.  By putting it here, I give flight to the things inside me that need to be released or they’ll flutter endlessly inside me.  When I feel like I’ve accomplished that, that’s when I love writing.

So why don’t I post more often?  Simple.  More times than not, my inspiration for a post comes from a song.  They lyrics, the music, they help evoke the story I’m trying to tell.  Like a soundtrack to a movie.  They push, prod and pull it out of me until I feel like it’s done.  I guess that’s why almost all my posts are song titles.  Music creates a comfortable backdrop to share freely.  But what do you do when you’ve heard it all and felt it already?  The battle I’ve been facing lately is where I do I find my muse when I’m sick of all my music?  How do I write more often when my creativity can’t be uncorked?

And so I started wandering around Wordpress and saw they had a topic of the day aiding you in posting every single day.  Every day!  Wow.  That’d be a serious stretch for me and would you people even read it all?  I was doubtful.  Then I stumbled onto this article, a 30 day song challenge.  It makes me curious.  Could this be the solution to my posting problem?  I’m not sure but I’m willing to give it a go.  A way to connect to the songs I already love and possibly stumble across ones waiting for my adoration.  Interesting idea.  Challenge accepted.
