I am pretty sure I mentioned a few months ago that I have started alternating between editing months and writing months. During June I spent time going over a collection of short stories I have, but now July has begun. That means it is time to write, all sorts of writing, stories, poems, and maybe even lyrics.
For whatever reason I got the idea in my head to try my hand at rapping. Not because I have any great love for rap/hip-hop culture (though there is some love there), or because I believe I have any lyrical or musical talent (I don’t), but just because I had the thought and life is nothing if not a series of interesting challenges.
So I will do my best. Maybe that means I give up after five days, maybe that means I record some terrible lyrics and make a fool of myself like when I tried to record spoken word. At the end of the day, this is my proclamation.
Think of it as that moment in any anime when the main character tells you what the series is about in the first episode.
“I’m going to be the pokemon champion!”
“I’m going to be her escort!”
“I will be his sword!”
If you don’t shout it out loud, it can’t come true. Maybe it still won’t come true, but at least senpai will notice you along the way.
I will be a rapper in July!
