Back from a break.

Writing

What I did:

  • outlined next post

What comes next:

  • type out final post, add illustrations

What I learnt:

  • the process of writing has become internalized at this point. I think I can start to skip certain parts of the process: it’s important for me to remember that I don’t write professionally, but because it’s fun and helps me crystallize any thoughts – there is no point to write with such a clunky process.

Music

What I did:

  • finalized guitar solo tone for WL4
  • finished backing track
  • recorded first 36-ish bars of solo

What comes next:

  • practice solo licks when doing nothing else
  • technique, speed, and basic improv practice. lead playing is by far the weakest link of the loops

What I learnt:

  • compartmentalize, and commit
  • time constraints are good, and focus on ONE PART is also good

Podcast

What I did:

  • recorded episode 10
  • started edit on episode 9. this one is going to be a tough one

Other

What I did:

  • …cut my hair
  • some admin stuff
  • templating and thinking. imagine that. I just put ‘thinking’ on my daily dispatch. this page is officially a joke now.
