Something new to the blog for 2020 my HeadBangers, I get tons of comments and questions weekly, so I thought I would pick one a week and post them, just ask away I’m not the shy type or afraid of haters……
This I thought was pretty interesting:
From: Danielle L.
First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts an getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
Well Danielle, thanks for the comment and the question. First off what works for one person might not work for another. I am very passionate about my music and the bands I put on the blog. I always listen to them first, I don’t judge music because as I always say what speaks to me may not speak to you. With that being said I can tell you the process I go through:
First I get a big cold coke with lots of ice and some sour cream and chives Pringles or crackers and sit in front of my laptop. I always play the current bands music in the back ground so that it soaks into me. I also look at all the pics and info on the band I have, alot of them I communicate with and you can get a feeling about how deep their music runs in them and that spills over into me. When you listen to a song and feel it beating in your chest how can you not know what to say. I’ve always been a writer one way or another and the words just come to me when I start to type. Don’t get me wrong I have had a couple times where I just hit the wall and had nothing to say, the words didn’t come, so I don’t force it I just waited a couple days and came back and there it was. In the end it all comes from the fire inside, your feeling and your joining with the music, be still and listen it will come my HeadBanger…….
Thanks for you support!
