Here we go with this week’s Five Minute Friday…
Five minutes of unedited, non stop writing on this week’s given theme ‘Rhythm’
I’m very strict when it comes to timing.
I don’t mean time keeping, I’m rubbish at that. No, I mean rhythm…
I teach singing and guitar and I’m always trying to drum it in to my pupils (pardon the pun) – the importance of keeping the beat. The whole thing falls apart if the beat isn’t right.
Rhythm… it’s all about the rhythm… No point in 12 quick beats and then nothing for a few seconds and them some more rushed timing. Steady, steady as she goes.
At the moment I’m up to my eyes in writing deadlines. Which is hugely exciting for me. I don’t get paid to write – not yet anyway 🙂 but I’m ok with that. I love it. Have found my thing. But I have come to the conclusion that I have to get in to a rhythm. I can’t do nothing for a few days and then try to cobble stuff together.
If I’m gonna take this seriously well… I have to take it seriously.
I need to heed my own words and get into some steady timing, a regular flow, then who knows what fabulous lyrics and melody will follow?

Thanks Vicki – delighted you stopped by 🙂
visiting from FMF. I have no rhythm at all it’s silly, but i love music!
Some people really struggle with it. Glad you still love music tho. 😉
I can only imagine what “fabulous lyrics and melody will follow” after getting a taste of your natural rhythm here. I love your words! And rhythm is everything isn’t it? As a fellow guitar teacher, I getcha!

i need to not only get my writing in a rhythm but my whole life. Before I became an empty nester my kids activities keep me in rhythm but now things seem to be to much of a free style.
Hi Amy – we don’t have kids, so I’ve no excuses 😀
I hope the transition goes well! x
