Note: This is a post about the day 11 of the Thirty Days of Focus, see the introductory post for more details.
I have this internal dialog all over again. The creative part of me wants to engage in a dozen of different things, be composing several songs simultaneously, to start a new project every day and do it while keeping all other commitments that I have. The rational part has quite some difficulties with keeping up with what I already have, and makes attempts on labeling each and every of them as stupid as useless, so I can dump more and more of them and concentrate better.
Unfortunately, neither of the extreme approaches work. I feel bad when I take a bunch of new things and slowing down or even suspending work on the current things for a while, and I also feel bad as I think of giving up things when they don’t go as smooth as before.
In terms of the music today, I put the attention at the end of what has been known as section B so far, and added a few measures over there. Still staying with a repeat there:
Next up: section C, and the end of what’s currently know as section F (former end of section C).
- Dancing with resistance. Letting it lead for a while, and then taking some action towards what I would actually like to have improved or accomplished.
- Continuing to insert lighter passages of chords and repeating notes, creating recreational space for listeners to relax in between faster and more complicated parts.
