Do Something!

OK, spring is here. Honestly, it's been here for a while, but it finally feels like it's time to shake off the winter doldrums and get to work. No more hand wringing, no more excuses. It's time to get stuff done.

Here's the goal - do SOMETHING, ANYTHING productive every day. Get back into the flow of getting work done. Could be as mundane as creating some decent lead sheets, or finally getting around to orchestrating some of the music I have lying around. Work on whatever comes - don't deliberate about the aesthetic merits of various ideas, just WORK on them, and see where they go.

Start recording. You've got 5 new tunes, at least the beginnings of 5 new tunes, with some idea of where they want to go. Start recording them and flesh them out. Pick up where you left on on the "Valid Victorians" project. Maybe it's time to re-visit some older tunes and record them to go along with the new ones, maybe start on some midway project - tunes that are "orchestrated" in some manner, either with 'real' instruments or electronic ones.

Just make sure that every day you get something done. It's time to start putting one damn foot in front of the other again, and produce.

- lead sheets for smooth jazz tunes
- finish and record new tunes
- orchestrate guitar piece
- write more for orchestral record
- work on vv recordings
- record some old tunes

The moment HAS been waiting...
