Date: Saturday, February 12
Choose a song/short piece the progress with which you are relatively happy (medium to high level of happiness is just fine.) It need not be finished in order to be used for today’s prompt.

Call your own voicemail and read/sing acapella the piece to your voicemail. If convenient, wait until later in the day and listen to the piece via your messages.

Write down your responses: how does it sound out loud? Which phrases run together especially well? Are there parts that sound awkward or forced—what are some alternative words or phrases that you may be able to work in? Which images are strong? Do any other images come to mind when you hear yourself? How are, as the listener, left feeling? Is that feeling you want your piece to create?
