Tucker, how could you say no?

I've talked about my kids' book a lot because it was the first project I completed. Hot on the heels of completing the Zany Zoo I had someone ask if I had another story they could illustrate. I told him about my story Uckey Sluckey.
How could I say no?

Ola Birch,illustrator of the Zany Zoo, asked if I had a story we could translate into Russian. I brought out Gary The Gargoyle.
How could I say no?

My mom will be releasing her album by the end of the year. She asked if I would do the album layout for her in exchange for studio time to record the Zany Zoo song.
How could I say no?

I've been back in the studio finishing up a five song ep. that should be done by the end of the month. I asked a friend if he was still interested in working an art project based on one of the songs. He said absolutely. I asked a DJ I know if he would do a remix of another one of the songs. He said absolutely. 

A local jazz singer has asked if she could record one of my songs on her upcoming live album.
How could I say no?

All of these things are just waiting to happen. The only thing that can stop them ... is if I ever say no.

I don't have to say the word no outloud. I just have to not do the things that people are ready to do with me. All I have to do is focus on something less important until the time come where all these people don't want to work with me anymore. All I have to do is nothing. 

All the projects I've described above are of my own creation they come from inside me. They make me smile when I think about them. I rant passionatley when people ask how they are going. They are what make me want to keep going. 

How could I say no? 


Tucker, are you done in the studio yet?


All the vocal tracking was finished last week and now there is some work to be done with Aaron adding guitars and stuff.

It was a lot of fun I'm sad it's over so quickly. Now i just need to use my hustle muscle so I can break even or turn a small profit so I can record some more stuff. That means my next steps are to find a music supervisor who'll love my songs enough to put one in a movie or a TV show. Maybe there'll be a Gilmore Girls reunion show and my song'll get played when Rory gets married. --- I mean -- Umm --- who's Rory? What's a Gilmore Girl? Is that like a Girl Guides troupe or something?

I'll post a song soon I just wanted to let all of my readers1 that the recording sessions are done. 


1 I love every single both of you
