R&B and Soul music. Specifically, 80’s and 90’s R&B and Soul. The stuff I grew up listening to. I’ve been keeping a running list of essential 80’s and 90’s R&B and Soul love songs and writing from that list. I need to get back to my play-in-progress, but it was enjoyable spend all night listening to some of the music I love and writing.
I started writing as soon as I woke up this morning and spent as much time as I could, writing. No resistance, no writer’s block, nothing. That felt good. Plus, it feels like spring is close. By this time next week, it’ll be lighter longer, ushering in my favorite time of year.
A Past joy:
The chicken parm at Trattoria E Pizzeria Da Enrico in Columbia, Maryland, is still probably the best chicken parm I’ve ever had. When I was dating somebody out that way years ago and we’d order food, that was by far my favorite. I might roll out there and get carryout one of these days.
I wrote last night and this morning about some resistance I had to being vulnerable in my writing. And yet, by the time afternoon rolled around and I’d been inspired some, I was able to get down what I needed to get down. I’m on the fence about how much, if any of that stuff, I’m going to share here. I may later in the week after I’ve had some time to reread and edit some of it.
