The closer it gets to April 1st, the more overwhelmed I am about trying to do CampNano (novel), NaPo (poems), and LogicProX (music production) classes. It ain't gonna happen. 🙂 Something's gotta give and it's going to be CampNano. Ouch! I have such mixed feelings about it.

Two of my twelve songs for FAWM didn't have a demo with them - I only time to write the lyrics. So I went back and added the demo I came up with. It's still in rough form but I had a lot of fun with it.

You have me here for a reason In the land of insecurity Writing songs fighting the imposter syndrome On the road to tranquility Oh my soul why do you cry You were made for this Accept the gift Don’t ask why Play the game, the game of surrender You bring me closer you whisper in … Continue reading Game of Surrender (#Poem #Lyrics #FAWM)
Don't Judge the Past Copyright 2018 Kathy Holmes Intro The wisest thing my mother ever said Don’t judge the past Don’t judge the past Don’t judge the past by the present Verse Why did you do oh the things you used to do Why did you choose to wear red over blue Why did you … Continue reading Don’t Judge the Past (#FAWM)
