Every Day

As of about 11 hours ago, I became my friend's keep-me-honest person.  He wants to be a writer and I told him that he needs to write every day.   That before he has a chance to think about anything else, he needs to write.  Get up, grab coffee/food, and write.

That being said, I decided to do the same.  Except with songwriting and music instead of prose.  At one point in my life I had a solid routine.  Then...I didn't.  But I want it back again.  Wake up, drink water, eat, loosen up, guitar.  It's not  hard.  In fact, it's quite simple. 

Some people can get by waiting for inspiration.  I like to think that the more I hack away the more likely inspiration is to come.  You gotta write the bad stuff to get to the good stuff.
