How to be a Consistent Writer on Vocal.
It's not easy being consistent at anything in life, let alone when there's a global pandemic just outside the door. The days are long and finding the motivation to do simple tasks is fleeting. God knows, I've been in Christmas mode since November, getting up at one and going to bed at three.
So you liked Star Wars? Here's 5 More Awesome Film series to help keep you Entertained in 2021.
So you've just binged all of the Star War's films (guilty) and now you're in silent agony, with nothing new to watch. You might have liked the story and music of the originals, the characters and action of the prequels and the cinematography and acting of the sequels, but the sci-fi elements? Maybe not so much.
