Hey everyone! Drawing Addict is back again with ANOTHER post and I know you are excited(I’m joking, you’re probably not) to see this week’s challenge! Here’s a wrap-up of last week; it was week four of the SBC and it was basically freestyle writing. Last week, I decided to use a writing prompt to make a short story(I also made a drawing for it and you know why.) Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to submit the link of my blog post into the google form, so I have to make up for it this week by getting this assignment over with. This week’s challenge was about music and there was a variety of options to choose from for it. You could make your own music, make a quiz about music, review music, write about an instrument, write about music and its downsides, and even making a playlist of music that you like. In this case, I wanted to be creative, so I made my own song(which, in my opinion, is really bad and too short[I don’t want to do it over again].)
I decided to write a song about my Communications class and how amazing it is. Note that I am not a good singer and I am even worse at songwriting(so please don’t tell me how bad my song is.) My song is currently only made up of lyrics, but I will put in some ukulele in the background later to improve it. I hope you enjoy the song and I hope you like my drawing for this week(drawing the cover of the song.) I would also like to mention one more thing before I put the song. I don’t know how many times I have said this, but, once again, make sure you check out my classmates’ blogs(they are very amazing and innovative people that deserve recognition for their blogs/work!) The song will be down below along with some background information talking about how I struggled to make the song.
While I was writing this song, I found myself struggling. I know I had chosen to make music, but it was harder than I thought. I always have catchy songs stuck in my head and it keeps me from making my own music because I am automatically putting those songs into my song. I also had no idea what to use for lyrics for the song so I had to write some good things about Communications and sing the words. It also does not help that I am really terrible at singing(at least, I think so. Other people tell me that my singing voice is better than average or is good[I don’t believe them though].) I was also using SoundTrap to make the music, but the thing is, is that SoundTrap is completely new to me. I have never used SoundTrap before this, so I did struggle with how to manage and work it. I managed to pull through though and I am happy that I am finally done with it. I hope you all liked this post and enjoyed this week’s challenge. That’s all for this week! Drawing Addict out~
P.S I will put in the drawing and background music in the song later~
P.P.S I just put in the background music in the song and I may have redid some recordings to make it sound better~
