My Fight with Writer's Block

It has been a long time since I wrote a blog and I missed you folks. I send you virtual hugs. :)
I encountered writer's block so I chose to chisel that block one word at a time. I kept chiseling at the block till I wrote another chapter in my first novel.

Where did I go while I was away? I visited a cyber library and checked out free sheet music at the Petrucci Library. It is a huge library that contains about 95,000 scores from over 5,000 composers. There are also many recordings.

I picked up Fur Elise music sheet from The Mutopia Project and played it many times. I was surprised that my fingers remembered how to play a song that I hadn't played for twenty years! Actually I hadn't played any music till last December. I found playing with my keyboard helps soothe the numerous frustrations that had been following me.

What else had I been doing with my time? I've been trying to write a song for months and hit an impass so I decided to lighten things up by doing a techno/ piano mashup.

I hope you enjoy my music video. :)

I hope to blog more frequently. Hopefully by next weekend I will post a blog.

Happy Writing!
