Writing

What I did:

  • sketched out the post

What comes next:

  • putting it down in a linear fashion with bullet points. aka, outlining and determining illustrations

What I learnt:

  • ‘mind mapping’ is very different from what i’ve believed it to be. things don’t have to be heirarchical at all: that’s kind of the point of mind mapping.
  • the goal with mind mapping is to link concepts and also establish a background flow to all the elements of your piece
  • need to read up more on how some of my favorite creators do this. austin klown, andy hunt, etc all have great ways of doing this.

What I struggled with:

  • not much, good experience.

Music

What I did:

  • recorded main CP, bassline, set of drums for WL 4

What comes next:

  • have different drum dynamics for different sections: slight changes. here’s how:
    • determine separate sections of solo
    • decide the feel of the drums
    • edit your arrangement accordingly
  • once arrangement is determined, have CONCRETE SOLO LICK REQUIREMENTS. R mode before L mode!

What I learnt:

What I struggled with:

  • logic pro mishaps. couple of crashes, but more importantly: running into problems with some stupid issues. cell length keeps changing on me, and I still can’t figure out certain recording inconveniences. need to rewatch some tutorials.

Podcast

What I did:

  • ep 7 is edited and uploaded. release on thursday night.

What comes next:

  • social post + start ep 9 edit

What I learnt:

  • adding chapters and templating certain things to reduce overheads.
