Diary Week 2

Diary week 2

Well it’s been a long week here for me, there is a delay in my diary because, I  have been really busy this week with lots of other tasks, that’s the thing with music it kind of has its place in my life but this week it’s not really been on my full attention ,although I did clear my office /studio this week and ordered myself a new tablet as for 2 years been doing most things on my phone and I am sure it’s starting to affect my eye sight ! So I am really looking forward to setting it up and sorting all sites out as working on a phone is really hard to work out everything! I cleared my laptop that I’ve had for about 6 years and gave it to a friend , looking through all the things I’ve  done and material things I have in my office  in the loft, is like going back in time,  it’s strange now how wires / leads / cds have all become almost redundant. what do you do with all these things? Make some crazy wall art or something i guess lol 😉

I have not got the heart to throw them away at moment, so there they sit waiting to be decided on , but I will have another clear out ,when I update my music computers some time maybe this year does depend on finances really and at the moment it’s not broken so why get something new, with a studio office build in front of me next year others things come first and with a year in the planning nice now to have a builder , so I am seriously excited about this starting in march, I’ve worked hard for this can’t wait to see myself in my new office by summer 2018 wow , better than sitting in rubble which has been the last year !

Song writing has been on my mind 10 to a dozen this week , I really sometimes beat myself up for hours as I miss creating, I miss working with people and I miss myself and I miss travelling  , its so easy for life to just take you away from your art , through illness/ work for money/ tiredness / winter weather / you could use every excuses under the sun ,so sometimes I study artists in the art fields , people who just make art everywhere and this keeps my spirits high , thinking that there will be a time I can concentrate, but that time is not now, you just can’t do  everything at once ,so in the meantime I do what I need to do and try not to get depressed or run down by it and keep positive for the future I guess that’s how I’ve always been, there is a book I read years ago I think it was called photology but don’t hold me to it , it was about visualising your dreams seeing yourself somewhere and then creating a pass to proceed it and forgive the people who are damaging or forgive yourself for being a nuance to others if indeed you are let and known you never wanted to be   , we are but only one person with only so many hours of one day , I sometimes think robotic it’s the only way to dampen the creative flow because I can’t always leave that door open .

Also coming up this week I will be announcing some news on the publication of my stepping stones album that is available for download on itunes ,  so keep a watch out for this on my website and other sites … there could be a trip to the USA planned in the near future this I am excited about I’ve never made it west of the world yet !

I have many friends there though so may even go there anyways sometime ,but so many other things in front of me at moment a total upheaval of building works… but it will be worth it to sit in my office.. I already am thinking how I will set up, I will have a thinking wall for new songs and plans and maybe a little live lounge stage that would be fun ! I take some pictures before and after and when it all starts but its not that exciting taking pictures of builders bums , well some fun for some ! !

So that was my week really just a normal week of paper work and organising as well as moments of writing songs , working on one at the moment but I can’t tell you the title as it would kind of give it away what the songs about , think maybe today I get my guitar and write the lot as well as play around with my new Tablet , taking pictures and filming with it , such a better quality than my phone and laptop so thrilled , here are some pictures of my morning walk  that I took with my phone the beauty of the end of November

Cheers To all new followers and hope you all have a lovely week until next write up next week. Emma Lock ! X

Weekly Diary

Diary Entry 1

 

So I have been pondering about writing my musical diary for a while now and have decided with much consideration to publish my musical journey now rules, number 1 was keep everything about music well this is easier said than done! But everything I do deliver apart from my family to do with my art and music so how do I follow and keep within the rules that I set myself?

So I will try my best to not cross the lines. So where do I start? What do you want to know?

 

I’ll start with today that’s a good place to start, every day at the moment I plan to work on music! I plan to write songs, I plan to look at all the songs that I have, I plan to write albums as I can write many song. Being a prolific songwriter I don’t really need to try very hard to write but I do know I need to practice, practice makes perfect and even if it’s writing a few notes that it’s always helpful to focus the mind on work. So sometimes I sit in the studio and I just write whatever comes into my head at the time.

Sometimes I sit in the studio and listening to old tracks and wondered to myself if I can do any better then I think of course I can I just need the right track and the right time and the right producer.

 

The world of music for me is a beautiful place and escapism and excitement journey places I can go my mind these places that I go to take time to get to them, sometimes I just don’t have the time, Yet sometimes I choose not to go to those places, sometimes I think that maybe it’s because I can’t be doing with the emotions or that I’m tired from the days work, sometimes I think it’s hiding to nothing. This pointless process but then sometimes working towards something even if it’s something small can really be beneficial to your life and in the future to others as music has always helped people in many ways, whether it’s just today and expressing emotion or to dance with friends I always hope that my music reaches people in one way or another.

So I have found this app that can convert me talking into text so now I can talk  to you, I can really express how I’m feeling and what I really want to say, this is going to be really helpful when I’m in the studio writing songs on the guitar because sometimes I write words that is so magical and within seconds the lost this can be tragic and very frustrating because some lyrics are just so magical and I cannot dig them back out of me as much as I try to re-sing a song or backtrack some of the words that I had written down is lost forever in this darkness that even light cannot reach.
