Crazy Dreams and Sleepless Nights -YouTube Music Video

This is my most recent music video to go with a chapter in my book  “Inside The Forbidden Outside”.  Life has gotten enormously busy and staying on top of things as my audience grows has been challenging  I have so much appreciation for the people who make the connection between the story and the music who have expressed an interest in the book when it’s done. Does any know how to invent more hours in a day, because there is something that always suffers because of a lack of time to get to it.  What this tells me is that I am onto something good or if be looking for ways to fill my time instead of the other way around

It’s been hard to post ad often as I’d like to, and my numbers suffer because of it. I don’t have the time to go to the many blogs I’ve found and enjoyed. Please forgive me for that. It isn’t because I don’t want to.

There is so much swirling around in my brain of things that needed to be taken care of to clear the space to write. I’ll get back here as often as I can. Please share this with your own social media. Go to my blog mynameisjamie.net and read the chapters I have posted to see how Jamie’s life inside the book is coping with the challenges of prison. At that blog you can subscribe to ITFO News and get the occasional update on the book, music, videos and any news of significance.

You can also go to my music Facebook page : Sonni Quick Piano Improv – like and share with your Facebook friends. I need all the help I can get to reach as many people as possible. 😁

Have a great year!

 

 

Ghosts in My Head – YouTube Video

This is the 6th completed video that goes with the book I’m writing, “Inside The Forbidden Outside”. Its been a lot of work so far and there is much more to come. Slowly I pull the pieces together.

What would help me enormously is to tap the YouTube logo and go there. That is the only place you can like it, comment or subscribe. These growing numbers help when people find me from other places. Some will look at the stats to determine if it’s worth it to them to watch it in the first place.

If you want to know when I publish new music or videos, or listen to other music I’ve written, you can subscribe to my music newsletter at http://sonniquick.net

Thanks for listening

Sonni

Picking Up Broken Pieces – Newest YouTube Video

Picking Up Broken Pieces

broken-glass-1794449_1920

This is the newest YouTube video with music for my upcoming book, “Inside The Forbidden Outside. The poem runs across the bottom. You can also read it right here.

It is my plan to put out a new video every two weeks, hoping that by the end of the year all of the pieces to my project will be completed and ready for editing. It has taken me three years to get to this point, having no idea what I was doing when I started. What a learning process. It has taken more determination and dedication than I thought I had.

For example – this video took 63 video clips I had to upload to my computer, after I found the ones I wanted, and then upload them into the software program I am using to make the video. Each video took 7-20 minutes to upload to the program. The clips then have to be arranged in the order I wanted and tested and retested. I’m still learning the word editing that has to be inserted into the different frames. It took about 20 hours to make this video. During that time I can’t work on the book or write blog posts. I can’t work on my music websites or keep up social media, so everything moves slowly as I circle through as much as I can in one day.

I don’t take any days off. There are no Monday through Friday workweeks. There is no paycheck for my efforts. When I wake, I get a cup of coffee that gets cold and I begin working. This project – for Jamie – and I don’t kid myself, it is for me, to show what I can do after more than a few years of making music.

If you don’t have deep determination to accomplish something, you may begin, but you won’t finish. You’ll put it aside after you convince yourself you can’t do it. If you can’t motivate yourself, or if you listen to people tell you that you can’t do – you won’t, and you will blame other reasons for why you failed. But blaming yourself probably won’t be one of those reasons.

But to do this I need your help – your support. I have a mailing list for my newsletter ITFO News. But I also now have a mailing list for my music and videos. You can easily subscribe to at at my website: Sonni Quick. When I come out with something new I’ll let you know. Listen and share if you like it. That is the best support you can give me. Subscribe to my YouTube channel. People look at that number when they go to YouTube and determine if someone is worth listening to. Growing those early numbers as quickly as possible is important.
