On October 16, 2017, I started the journey of documenting my process as I wrote letters to the world via art, words, and songs. As a singer-writer, author, and artist, this has always been how I created art: I thought of someone's story, then, I wrote something for it. But the difference that October 16 made was that I decided to this process with the world, by writing/making something for people individually, as they submitted their stories.
As far as this blog is concerned, I didn't decide to start documenting here on the blog until a month later, but I figured it would be a good idea to start it now instead of later. So here we go, post by post, I will share them here. They may get a little out of order from time to time, but I hope you enjoy reading them.
So far, over 3,000 people have shared their stories with me, and it is my mission to eventually make/write something for every single person, with the ultimate goal of someday, in my lifetime, having had the opportunity to make/write something for 1,000,000 stories.
Needless to say, I will be working on this for a while...which makes me so excited about it. Here we go.
