Serious question – does the world need yet another motivational blog? I’ve been doing some soul searching lately. I know that I love to write. But I love music so much more.
So I decided to really ask myself – what do I want to do with this blog? And the answer is simply to keep writing, but not to sell ebooks. I want to write just to write.
The thing is though, it’s coming across more of a motivational blog than I intended it to be. I made this blog to promote my music, not to lift other people’s spirits.
“Then why write something that sounds more like a motivational blog?”
Yeah, that’s the problem. I have no idea how I ended up writing like this.
So it stops here. I’m going to change the theme and get back to what I’m supposed to be doing with it, which is promoting my art.
And yes, I’ve been gone for quite some time. You’ll notice the post count kept dropping every month.
That’s because I don’t want to put out a motivational blog. And that’s what it feels like I’m doing, so ironically, my motivation to write ceased.
Which for me is fine. Recently, I’ve been learning drawing with a beautiful live model who is quickly becoming one of my favorite people on the planet. I’ve also been taking private art lessons.
The goal here is to be a musician/composer first and a painter second. But before learning how to paint, you should really know how to draw. My drawing earlier this year sucked. I think my next post will be on before and after pictures, and you’ll see the huge difference an art teacher makes.
Anyways, if you’re looking for motivational posts, you can find plenty in the past. You won’t find any going forward.
I’ve already said that if you need to be motivated, it’s because you’re not doing something you love. I’ve said that many, many times in the past. I don’t need motivation to play my guitar or the piano, or to compose. And now, I don’t need motivation to draw. Of course with drawing, it helps I get to work with a gorgeous young live model. But that’s another story for another day.
