Music Monday (1)

Hi there. I took somewhat of a blogging hiatus over the weekend to focus more of my attention on writing. I was productive--finally. Usually when I fall out of writing for a bit, I start a new project. The project tends to be one I don't plan to go anywhere, but I write it in hopes that it will jostle my creativity and reawaken the writing passion. It helped. I was able to write over 5,000 words this weekend, which felt really good.

But...in Academy Award related news...I have now viewed  5 out of 9 of the Best Picture films.

Today's Post: Music Monday
