Brooke White writes a New Years message to her fans in her latest MySpace blog.
She reflects back on the past year, and muses about the days ahead. In this excerpt, she explains that she’s set a New Year’s goal of writing 10 songs in the month of January to add to the 10 she’s written already:
I have some of my own plans, but if there is one thing I have learned, it is that plans are made to be broken. So my plans are flexible, not rigid… I mean I’m an artist, and so my plan is to make art… whatever that means. That being said, I have decided to set a particular goal, and by saying it out loud makes me more accountable… after all we are in the season of resolutions and goal settings. I have about ten songs written, a few of them I happen to like a lot actually. But I need more… I need to write more, SO my goal is to write ten songs in the month of January. This is going to be particularly difficult for me as I am great at starting and not super great at finishing. I often times wonder if I have A.D.D., probably. BUT I am putting a bit of that mental toughness to work, and going to buckle down and get to work, get to starting and get to finishing. I love music, but truth is writing is hard. Well it is for me, cause it’s personal, emotional and vulnerable. Not that it’s always my story I’m telling, but I still feel like in order to get the good stuff, you have to be willing to go diving for it, a little exhausting but usually very rewarding when truly sought after and discovered. They don’t all turn out great, but there are a few gems that turn up. These are songs that hopefully you will get to hear sometime in the near future so… wish me luck!
She also advises the Season 8 contestants, who are waiting to embark on the wild and crazy American Idol journey to “hang on.” And she thanks her fans.
