Writing Songs as a New Career Due to the Pandemic


            After two month of experiencing clients putting their writing projects on hold, Gini Graham Scott, author of over 250 published books, has turned the extra time into a new career of writing, publishing, and licensing songs.  And she has signed with a Music Publishing Company that acts as a licensing administrator: Missing Link Music, which handles registrations and collecting money from licensed songs. 

            The new career started when Gini began writing a series of song, turning them into music videos, and publishing several books and articles to help people feel better and overcome their fears and anxieties. The song collections includes the Feel Good Song Book and The Feeling Better Song Book, in which the most popular songs reflect nostalgia for the way things used to be and highlight what's good to get through the hard times.  These top three songs are:

             - "Remember the Good Times" https://youtu.be/ASPwZDTKiQ4

- "Fighting Against the Corona Virus" https://youtu.be/LMZtxgMBdEM

- "Don't Let Today Get You Down" https://youtu.be/hrMxTxnLmwQ

            Next Scott began revising a series of songs originally created in 1993-1995, starting with some songs about what's wrong in America and what needs to change.  Ironically, the songs were as timely now as then in describing the same problems with almost no change in 25 years, such as crime in the streets, drug problems, warring gangs, homelessness, bank fraud, oil spills, forest destruction, and global warming.  These are described in two of the most popular songs about social problems: "Are We All Right?" https://youtu.be/worpkeAtlRw  (though the answer is no) and "A Shot in the Dark" https://youtu.be/CFymL1hdCIk (about stopping the violence in the streets).     

            Most recently, Scott has added a dozen song about finding, losing, and discovering love again, such as in "Cyberqueen" https://youtu.be/bd-RSfoLys8, about finding love on the Internet, "Jigsaw Puzzle of My Heart" https://youtu.be/NZcmwTQOfwQ, comparing falling in love to completing a jigsaw, and  "Repo Girl" https://youtu.be/XBbVIz4QUZ4n, about a girl who steals hearts like a thief in the night.

            Now, as a BMI writer (through Changemakers Music) and publisher (through Changemakers Publishing) with over 100 songs, Scott has just signed with a licensing publisher Missing Link Music to begin signing songs to major record labels and artists.  In this way, in response to the pandemic, Scott has fashioned another career and expect to continue it even after the ghostwriting clients and book publishing deals return.

            In Scott's view, such self-transformation is needed for employees, business owners, and professionals due to the coronavirus, which has wrought vast changes throughout the economy. These changes have been so massive that even after the pandemic is over, many industries won't come back- or will be dramatically transformed.  As Scott, who has written several dozen self-help and inspirational books, puts it:

            "People today need to become like chameleons to adapt to changes in the work and business environment.  They have to learn what's still working and what isn't, and be ready to modify whatever they do.  Emerging from this long period of isolation and lockdown can feel like starting again or doing a relaunch.  But if you approach this changed world with a can-do attitude, it can be an exciting time, like you are in the vanguard of opening a new frontier and being an explorer in a new world."

            In this way, Changemakers Music and Publishing has become this new frontier for Gini Graham Scott.  This new business even has its own website at www.changemakersmusic.com, and she plans to keep it going, alongside her other company Changemakers Publishing and Writing at www.changemakerspublishingandwriting.com, which features books on self-help, memoirs, business, and criminal justice; ghostwriting books, proposals, and scripts for clients; and helping writers find publishers and agents.  Plus Scott speaks on writing, self-publishing, and promotion, most recently as a speaker at the Marketer's Content Playbook Virtual Summit to be held August 4-6th online with about 30,000 attendees.
