Independent Clauses | n. —unusual words about underappreciated music

The latest plan

August 13, 2010

You don’t need much more than two eyes to realize that things have been slow around here. There are a lot of reasons for this, but the main one is this: My personal life has caused me to be stressed out of my mind for the past month. When I get stressed, the last thing I want to do is sit down and write.

So, to get things rolling again at Independent Clauses, I’m going to write stuff that I don’t consider to be work. I’m going to go through the top five/ten/fifteen/twenty/who knows how many bands on my Last.FM and write about why I love them so much. It will not be hard to write about the Mountain Goats, Sufjan Stevens or Bleach; that is the precisely the point.

So, to get my brain moving in the music-writing direction again, I’m going to be writing about the Mountain Goats next time I sit down to write. I don’t know when that is, and I’m not going to force myself into a schedule. It will come when it comes. Here’s to hoping I get back on track.
