Thoughts on Apple Music

cnet.com

When Apple Music was first introduced a few years ago, I thought it was stupid. Why pay $10/month when I already paid for every song individually? It seemed pointless.

My attitude changed while I was on vacation a few weeks ago, when a friend of a friend showed me how it works. When I got back from vacation, I thought about the free trial for a few days. I figured if I didn’t want it after the trial, I could cancel it. There was no reason not to sign up.

And, I have to say, I really enjoy Apple Music. I’ve been using it for almost a month, and I already know that I don’t want to cancel it. I can listen to any song without having to download it to my phone. And that’s a lot of songs. Apple Music grants access to everything under the sun. Well, at least most of the songs I’ve been looking for.

One of my favorite things about it is that I now have access to lyrics. So whenever I don’t catch the words, I can look them up. Or when I want to write about some of the lyrics, I don’t have to recall them from memory and risk getting them wrong.

I also enjoy the playlists curated by Apple, because I love finding new music to listen to and songs that inspire my writing. It’s also fun to create my own playlists and see what my friends are listening to.

Apple Music is so much more than I thought it was, and I’m very happy to be proven wrong.

Thanking my Azaleas

Iggy Azalea is one of my new favorite people.  “Black Widow” and “Beg For It” helped me write two new scenes for my book.  They flowed from my brain, through my pencil, and finally to my notebook.  Scenes had never come so easily before.  It was awesome.

Humorous Inspiration

Usually, when people ask me why I am and English major one – and only one event comes to mind.  One which I will save for another post.  It all started with John Grogan, author of Marley & Me.  After I saw the movie, I decided to read the book.  And it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me.  I found Grogan’s sense of humor essentially the same as my own, which made for laugh-out-loud entertainment.

Crikey! I’ve got my mojo!

Hey everyone! I will be hard at work on my book today. I got chapter 5 done last night. I’m going to outline the rest of it and see how that goes for me. My main problem is that my inspiration comes in spurts, usually when I can’t write it down anywhere. But I’m really proud of this one because it’s the farthest I’ve ever gotten with a book. Before, I’d get to the plot too quickly, leaving no room for the description in my mind’s eye. I’d be out of ideas by page two. That’s not the case this time. I’m actually going to finish it!
