A new song (weird)

I've been in a real dry spell, writing wise, the last year or so. I think I have 3 new songs since the CD came out.

I can add to that now. I have been wanting to write about my experiences in Mahtowa for 2 years now.

For those of you who are new to my LJ, The Highway 61 Folks Festival is a little music festival where you can hear great original songs every year. I cannot recommend it more highly. It is mostly local folks, mostly amateurs and pretty much entirely great. I have heard some folks who are not real comfortable onstage, but I have heard very few bad songs. I have heard very few mediocre songs. And there are always a bunch of great songs every year.

Well, last year I had a strange encounter with a motel owner and have wanted to write a song about it. If all goes well (and it seems to be) it will be one of my entries into the songwriting contest this year.
