Kesha attends the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 18, 2014 in Las Vegas. 

Fresh off of appealing a judge's decision not to release her from Dr. Luke's purview, Kesha took to Instagram Wednesday to offer a welcome promise of hope that she may be down but by no means out.

"Been writing all day" she posted as words of encouragement for fans who have been rallying in support of the artist that she may be released from her Sony contract so she can continue working without her former producer Dr. Luke, whom she has accused of sexual abuse. In February New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich denied a preliminary injunction allowing her to do so, saying the court would not "decimate a contract that was heavily negotiated and typical for the industry."

Kesha Appeals Judge's Denial of Dr. Luke Injunction

On Monday Kesha's lawyers filed paperwork to appeal the court's decision, writing, "First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."

She may not have her freedom, but at least she's still finding her voice - which, for the record, she says feels like shoe/lipstick/manicure emojis.
