It's been...9999999 years... 

Hey #MuseMafia, 

So it has been quite some time since I last wrote a blog, and I've been contemplating starting it back up just because of the inconsistent post schedule...but I decided to anyway.  I just love writing, and it's a great way to keep everybody updated on...well...everything. 

I'm in the midst of I guess what I'd call a "transitional year."  When New Years 2019 was happening, I truly thought, Oh wow, this is it! 2019 is my bitch! This is my year!  I was wrong.  This year, planets are doing…

Fans....friends...THANK YOU! 

My fans - My friends… I just feel moved to write this, because “Thanks” doesn’t feel like enough to me.  If I could hug each an every one of you, I would.  If I could sit and listen to you vent, hear your problems, hear your hopes and dreams, the good and the bad…just be a friend - be there for you, I would.  If I could offer the best advice, should you ask for it, I would.  If I could make a living playing free music for you all for the rest of my life, I damn well would.  I am so grateful for all of you…

Writer's Block ARGH! 

Writer's block is that helpless, hopeless, slow-death feeling of not knowing what to create when you're in the setting and mode to create.  It's when the divine flow of creative energy just shuts off, like a kink in a hose, and the ideas just won't flow.  You're blocked.  There's something obstructing the way, and the creator cannot create. 

I have experienced writer's block SO many times, and through my experiences, I've learned (and it may be different for others) that it's triggered by:

Dream Big 

"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable." - Christopher Reeve 

AKA Freaking Superman.  SUPERMAN SAID THAT.  That should be enough to make you want to dream enormous dreams that make other people look at you like you're insane! 

I have noticed throughout my 26 years on this interesting (to say the least) planet that people who dream big are often the most criticized and challenged.  I fully believe that this…
