Brooke White updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@brookewhite) on Thursday (April 9), talking about the difficulties in songwriting. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up writes:
So I woke up this morning, feeling pretty lazy actually, realizing that I had a major day ahead of me, I just couldn’t get myself motivated. I would definitely consider myself a morning person, I love getting up early and getting the day started… well, not today:) So I just stayed there in bed for a while, snuggled up in my covers, watched a little bit of the today show… but could I really relax… well of course not, I don’t really do “relax”… even when I’m “relaxing” it’s pretty much not happening, it’s like pretend relaxing, why? Good question… I’m just an intense gal, what can I say, can’t slow down the noggin’, always creating… kinda drive myself up the wall with it… I gotta remind myself “just calm down lady”, again, not overly effective, but hey I’m tryin’.
So anywho, so as I was laying there, I started humming a melody, almost subconsciously, when I realized “hey that’s good, you should record that”, so I reached over grabbed my iPhone and recorded the idea, then I thought, “you know, you really should get out of bed and go sit at the keyboard and start working this out”… I kinda whined about it and thought, “is it really that good? like good enough to get out of bed for”… finally I kicked the covers off in a rather irritated fashion… and I stumbled over to the keyboard, and started working on the idea.
