Had a BLAST last night:) Now that Dart League is over, and Cheryl mentioned last week Wednesday nights were pretty much dead, B and I decided to show up around 9:30 and see if she would let us sing earlier. And she did:)
We got the party started, and soon others were putting in their requests. In two hours, I managed to sing six songs:
Bleeding Love (Leona Lewis): I still need to work on the ending of this song! And it was a good warm up:)
Born To Be My Baby (Bon Jovi): I might do this one better if we can raise the key a bit; it's still too low for me.
Bop (Dan Seals): Tried this one again with the key bumped higher. Still too low in spots, so I'm officially scrapping this one.
Boys of Summer (Don Hendley): Raised the key a full step and while I was comfortable singing it, it's not one of my favorites.
Call Me When You're Sober (Evanescence): Nailed this one last week; this time I could hear myself. Received a round of applause, plus the request to sing this one more often! My Happy Dance moment of the evening:)
Calling All Angels (Train): I love this song, and wondering maybe if bumping it up a half step will help in some spots??? This is my absolute favorite Train song, so keeping this one.
On the agenda today, I'm still working on Balancing Act's edits. I managed to rework an argument yesterday that occurs 'off-camera' and is repeated the next day 'on-camera', so after I fix the transition, then I have to make sure the second argument isn't too repetitive. And hopefully things will flow smoothly and I can send it back. Is this the way the entire series is going to go? The odd-numbered books being a snap to revise, while the even-numbered ones have me questioning my sanity, lol?
Sigh......and you thought being a writer was easy.......;)
Tomorrow: Memories of April 1982.
