It's been a while since I've written in this blog. A lot has happened since. I had my first full year as a professional musician, juggling multiple teaching jobs as well as other jobs! I moved to NY recently to really go for it. As I get acclimated to my new surroundings, and the frenetic nature of NY, I thought having something to tether me to my craft would be helpful. Hence, I'm embarking on a journey of 6 weeks of object writing. Just 10 minutes every morning, but a commitment to doing this every morning for 10 minutes. Object writing is a tool used by lyricists and writers, as a way to deep dive into writing. It works upon engaging all of your senses - writing from the perspective of touch, taste, smell, sight, sound, plus two other sense: organic sense which is your awareness of inner bodily functions - pulse, heartbeat, muscle tension, etc. And Kinesthetic sense - roughly your sense of relation to the world around you like when you're on a train and get seasick, the world around you blurs. So I start on this 6 week exercise of object writing. Each day I'll use a different object. Please feel free to submit your own examples of this exercise. I want this to be an open forum of creativity!
