So, a lot of people wonder what happens on an average day for an up and coming songwriter… so here is a day in my life during a typical week! Be warned… some days are not that interesting, and it is sometimes repetitive… but a little routine never hurt anyone 🙂
Day job, practice, workout, play at a writers’ night. What’s a writer’s night, you ask? Well, a bunch of songwriters get booked to play short sets at a venue. You play your set, you hang out with writers you’ve met before, and do a little networking. Sometimes, you meet new co-writers, sometimes you meet publishers, sometimes you just meet new friends.
Day job, send booking emails, practice and write.
Day job, co-writing session, send more booking emails. Oh, and on Wednesdays I usually write my blog! (Yes, I know today is Thursday… sometimes I like to break the routine!)
Day job, workout, send booking emails, just relax!
Day job, workout, write, try and have a social life!
Co-write or go to a workshop, do normal catch-up things like cleaning and grocery shopping.
Practice, write, possibly co-write… and usually do 15 loads of laundry that have been neglected the rest of the week!
So there you go… a typical week for one up coming singer/songwriter. In an ideal world, I would have a lot more time for writing and co-wiriting… but those are good things yet to come!
By the way, keep an eye on my website for new tour dates… I’ve got some exciting shows coming up in the next few months!
