I haven’t written anything on here in a long while so I figure I would give you all an update.
First off, I released a new GuestHouse project a month or two ago. It’s called 2018 and it’s a collection of songs written and recorded during that year. It wasn’t a planned release, but rather a result of me realizing that I had a good amount of stuff recorded during the year with no specific goal in mind. You can find that HERE:
The next thing I wanted to talk about is that I think I might be taking a break from making music for a while. I don’t really have the drive to do it at this present moment and I’d rather concentrate on other creative ventures that interest me more. At this point, I’ve released about 16 collections of songs between GuestHouse, REYEZ, Cantaloupe, etc. That’s all within the span of the last 5-6 years and I feel like I’ve said all that I can say in that medium for the time being. I’m sure I’ll get back to it eventually (specifically, writing another Cantaloupe record would interest me the most), but for now I think I’m going to put it to rest. I have a lot of stuff to do and writing music just feels like a waste of time.
I think my next adventure is going to be writing fiction. I’ve become much more interested in reading and writing in the past two years or so and its nothing I’ve really done since I was a kid, so I want to see what I can do in that area. The idea is to write a short story first, just as a proof of concept, and then write another one, and another one, and so on, and then maybe eventually start working on a more long-form work. I have a few ideas but I think that most of what I’ll end up working on will present itself as I start writing. Its a completely new thing for me for I’m sure I’ll get frustrated and want to quit but I’ll try and push through it and hopefully I come out on the other side a more well-equipped human being.
Once I have something to show for it, I’ll make sure to post it here for you all to read.
