All my rough draft originals have been brought to my library. The two and a half year span ended up being 81 songs that I could sort and about sixty miscellaneous pages from works that can probably be turned into another 15-20 songs.
Looking back brought back all kinds of emotions from hope to healing to pesimism and destruction.
I have a lot of organzation to do now that the library has materials. The April 19th tentative date may have to be pushed back but at least the foundation is here.
I have finally somewhat organized my handwritten lyrics spanning a few years.
The first step in building this site is to scan in, create and organize a personal media library for my work.
Some things are type-written but most are the old-fashioned pen and paper.
My plan is to have the written lyric available side by side with the type written polished version.
Many songs I wrote I had an artist in mind for them, some were inspired by other means and no artist in mind. Some were written intended for an artist similar to a famous artist.
I figure it can’t hurt to say who I had in mind for each endeavor and I am realistic enough to realize the chances of someone famous to like what I do to be slim to nil. However stranger things have happened and who knows.
I’m hoping to add video feebly singing out some lyric’s they way I hear them. My voice admittedly probably sucks but who knows maybe something will resonate with someone eventually.
I can’t use teeth pain as an excuse as I’ve had all my uppers removed and will have dentures by the end of May. Still dang sore too. Gums really hurt and video won’t be available for a while.
I’m going to set the tentative launch date April 19th, 2015

This is the future site of Lyripella set to launch mid-April.
