Damnit. I had this eloquent log post all ready to go, became distracted and closed my browser. Frustrating.
Anyway, what it said was how I spent the day in Hutchinson, KS, at the strawboard manufacturing plant. It talked about how we’re selling it this Tuesday and how mad I was at having to be down there and not here being productive. It led to the fact that I was productive, talking about the new song that I wrote and about how I’ve had the verse melody and the first line or two done for over a year but that I just now finished it, never knowing how the rest of the song was going to turn out or how this was going to be my longest run-on sentence since March.
Anyway, I like my new song. It’s a departure from my recent songwriting record, but I believe it’s solid, at least as far as the melody and concept. I’ll give it the morning-after test tomorrow and get back with you.
