So it’s over. 50/90 is over. The longest and shortest ninety days of my life (:
It’s very bittersweet. I’m glad it’s over, because now I don’t have to constantly think about my next song anymore and I can just take a break from songwriting–for a little while 😉 But I’m also sad because it was so much fun, and I loved the 50/90 community and atmosphere, the encouragement, the challenge, the teamwork. I loved working alongside some really cool people, and I really loved when I collaborated with like 5 other people to write a song together. We had a lot of fun.
I really grew in my songwriting abilities over the past three months. I learned how to be creative even when I don’t necessarily want to be. I learned how to dig deep into my brain and extract every bit of muse that I have. I learned how to write about all kinds of subjects and genres, I learned how to be serious or funny or both, I learned how to rhyme, I learned how not to rhyme, I learned how to persevere even when I reeeeally felt like giving up.
I’m in for next year (: Who’s with me?
Now I have a whole entire month to get myself together before NaNoWriMo starts and I have to switch from songwriter mode to novelist mode.
