Entry 0000007

Announcement!

I just released a new podcast I have been working on with my friend! We are super excited about it, and you can find the first episode and trailer here!

A good way to start the year.

Writing

What I did:

  • Typed out the outline for the next post (it’s about everything I learnt from 7 months of blogging)

What comes next:

  • A first finished draft of the post ready for editing
  • start on illustrations for the post

What I struggled with:

  • Usually I’ve been quite good about having a good flow between sections of a post. I’ve also been good with finishing conceptualization and linking before I actually start writing. This post was written haphazardly and over a lot of travelling and over a holiday break, so things were a bit rickety. For the next post, I will work through my steps a little more rather than just winging it.

Music

What I did:

  • Arrangement work. I’d been struggling with nailing down a rhythm with a warm, soft tone but I think I finally have it. At least I have version 1.

What comes next:

  • Record the entire fingerpicking track
  • Add a second EG track

What I struggled with:

  • Timing! Playing to a metronome is much easier said than done.

Podcast

What I did:

  • Launch day!

What comes next:

  • Working out recording schedules with a 13.5hr time difference. Not fun.
  • Edit episode 3

Other

What I did:

  • Nothing. Yay.

What comes next:

  • Some conception and continue to record RLF
