Music, lyrics, and … SNOW?!

Well, it’s April in Atlanta and that doesn’t mean much, considering we have the threat of ice/snow looming over us today. The weather here is never very predictable until July, when we can count on it being hot until the end of September.
( A few minutes later…)
Yep. There it is.  It is snowing in Atlanta on April 7th.
Anyway, I’ll take advantage of the cuddly weather to bundle up and […]

making space, part the third

This last aspect of space I want to tackle in this series is at once the most important and the most difficult to write.
Once space in the schedule is made, and the physical space for writing is found, there is still a major hurdle to overcome in order to get to work.  This is the intangible and ever-changing psychological space needed in order to create.   One entry definitely won’t cover […]

making space, part two

In the first post of this series I talked about having chronological space available for writing, and how I’ve been trying to make that happen.  So now that I’ve learned to prioritize my time and delegate tasks, what is the next step to getting back on the horse…er…in the saddle… wait, why are all of these idioms related to cowboys?  Are there no perseverance-related sayings just for writers?   Maybe not.    […]

Thanks, NACA!

Now that I’ve had more than three consecutive hours of sleep, I think I can form the thoughts to make this entry.
This was my first NACA conference and it was definitely a great way to get introduced to the wacky world of college booking.  I don’t envy what the Student Activities Boards are having to do in the next couple of weeks — look through the piles & piles of […]

Lost at NACA

I’ve been up in Nashville since Saturday, participating in the NACA National Conference. This is my fourth time visiting Nashville and I like it more every time I come.  The conference is taking place at Opryland.  I’d never been to that area of Nashville on my other visits so I was curious to check it out.
The Opryland Resort & Conference center, if you haven’t been, is best described […]

making space, part one.

Last year, I was busy.
Working at my “day job” (which I actually love), going to school part-time, doing some work as a labor and postpartum doula, moving into a house, adopting animals, repeatedly resolving to go to the gym (and sometimes going!) — I was really, really busy.   As a result of being so busy living a “normal” life, I let some very important things fall by the wayside, […]

bookmarked

Hey folks,
This is going to be my new blog home about my writing process, being a songwriter, shows I play, etc…
Eventually it’ll be integrated into my main site but for now I wanted a separate home for it.
Please update your twitter and AIM accounts to reflect the new screen name, too —  writeplayrepeat.
Thanks!
