Here and now, I’m trying to overcome some self-consciousness about moving forward with the creative process regarding my original songs.
Before the pandemic, I unexpectedly and joyfully experienced months where my creative process produced many original songs, which I performed at Open Mics and featured in this daily blog.
My manager — a fabulous human being whom I helped create 24 years ago — thinks I should create recordings of my best songs with excellent sound quality and feature them prominently on my YouTube channel.
For some reason, which I can’t quite process, I’ve been avoiding following my son Aaron’s wise advice, focusing instead on the creative process in my therapy groups and on social media.
Part of the creative process, for me, is naming and (sometimes) sharing the obstacles, so I’m hoping that creating this blog post will help me move forward with my original songs. Today, I plan to record a great version of “I Left the House Before I Felt Ready.”
Do you see the creative process in my images for today?
I did NOT create National Pigs in a Blanket Day nor National Pet Parents Day, but I am a proud pet parent to Joan …
… and Harley.
Here’s a video I created at the Sheep Shearing Festival yesterday, which my son Aaron is going to send to his girlfriend overseas:
I hope to create a video of “I Left the House Before I Felt Ready” with better sound quality than that, today.
What are your thoughts and feelings about the creative process?
Gratitude for what I have is part of my creative process, so thanks to all who help me create this blog every day, including YOU.
