Where My Memories Are Found

I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. I just moved, and not across town. I packed up my family and moved half way across the country. I don’t regret or begrudge the reasons for the move, but it has been a huge struggle. And still ongoing. And will be until the end of August. So what’s my […]

A chat with Wedding Day Rain and author Kelsey Macke (And free stuff!)

Hi friends!I had the sweet opportunity to chat with the husband and wife team, Daron and Kelsey Macke, that make up Wedding Day Rain, an indie-folk band destined for greatness. Daron and Kelsey are two of those ridiculously talented people who can sing and play music and write beautiful words. They’re also really great people. […]

What Your Favorite Song Can Teach You about Editing

I’m not only a music lover and a writer, I’m also an editor. And I’ve been doing a ton of it lately. As I work, I listen to music, of course, because if I’m awake, generally there’s a soundtrack. And I’ve noticed something happening in all the manuscripts. All of them. Yes. Really. Extra words. […]

Epic

I’m a huge Veronica Mars fan. The hugest! I mean, the biggest fan, not the hugest…that would be weird. Anyway, I love that show. I’ve watched it way too many times and did so again recently. There’s a moment at their Prom when Veronica and Logan are talking about epic love. He describes epic love […]

Guilty Pleasures

Hi Friends. Angi Nicole here. Today I want to talk about something I’m going to do in 2014. I know, I know. Me and everyone else on the internet, but before you switch off, give me a minute. This blog is all about words. Sure, words in music and book form, but at its basest […]

Can you separate the art from the artist?

Ever listen to a song you know is based on a real thing or person? You’re So Vain, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald(is that the right title?), any Taylor Swift song ever written? No matter how much the singers deny or confirm, you know it was based on a real person, a place, a […]

Soundtracks and Albums – A Moment in Time

I teach dance and I write, two things, that for me, require lots of one thing – music. Coupled with the fact that I can’t breathe without music notes inundating my head, and there’s a lot of listening, searching for, and downloading of new music that goes on in my house. For me that day […]

Finding the Story After the Song

I know the normal way of things. Have an idea, write a draft, revise until you bleed, make a book. Somewhere in there you find pictures of the actors who will play your beloved characters when your big idea becomes a best seller and is made into a movie. You also make a playlist. What’s […]

The Lost Art of The Mix-Tape

I’m going to date myself here and tell you, I’m a child of the 80’s. There were many great things about the 80’s and none of them include mall bangs, wearing two pairs of socks at the same time or biker shorts. The list of good things is long, but at the top of it […]

Universally Singular Sensations

Hey there. It’s Angi Black. It’s my first time at All The Write Notes. So hi and thanks for having me. Today I wanna talk about why music and writing go are alike. Some people use music for inspiration. some people just don’t like a room of quiet and music is preferred over screaming children. […]
