I am one woman writing every day.
Last night during my screenwriting class I realized that my screenplay is unlocking an important door in my psyche.
I want to unlock as much as I can of the mysteries and secrets of my parents' lives and my children's lives and my life so I can see clearly.
Seeing clearly is not easy.
I write the screenplay of what happened to me this early Spring and as I write it the meanings unfurl.
The songs I'm writing tie to the story of the screenplay.
The songs may get better if the screenplay story is cracked open.
Why did I think there was a story there?
How did I write the story as it was unfolding in real life real time?
Why am I seeing the answers now?
How do I know the story has the correct beginning middle and end?
How can I tell others how I felt and what I learned in song form?
I write every day because you have to write even the worst writing in order to get closer to the best writing.
I wrote a whole song yesterday morning.
I wrote a whole song this morning.
Are those songs gonna stick?
I don't know.
The new album is currently entitled "No Man's Land".
