NaSoAlMo 2011, Day 10

November 10, 2011 | Comments

I'm starting to feel burnt out with the songwriting/recording. It's evening, and I haven't recorded anything today. I went on an adventure to Blanco, Texas, though. I had lunch at Zocalo (recommended!). I also went to Blanco State Park, walked around, and sat at a picnic table by the Blanco River and listened to music and jotted down whatever came to mind in my songwriting notebook. I also found a wildlife viewing area where you sit behind glass (or probably plastic) and watch birds and squirrels. I saw a few cardinals, both male and female, and other birds I'm not able to name. The cardinals made my day. There were ducks on the river, too.

I think most of the reason I feel burnt out is because I'm suffering from allergies. This week has been a bummer with two days of headache and now two days of allergies. Tomorrow doesn't look to be better because the mold count is going to be the same.

I think I'm going to abandon music for the rest of the evening, and start back on it tomorrow. I have a vocal and possibly some instruments to record plus another 1-2 songs to write.
