…three years later!
It’s the way of every blog I’ve ever started. A burst of enthusiasm, followed by a dwindling output, with longer and longer gaps between entries until… Well, this.
I have, of course, been writing music for the last three years, keeping my head above water financially and creating some art too (I hope).
But I never fulfilled my goals of composing, recording and releasing an “album’s”-worth (whatever that means in this day and age) of music. I shalln’t make excuses – I’m still hoping to do just that, and I have all the ideas I had three years ago and many, many more to work with now. I’ve been, on and off, keeping my “hour a day” notion going (with the help of Habit Flow on my mobile) and so I am still progressing, still moving forward, albeit at a glacial pace from any outside viewpoint!
I’ve got other plans too though, other ideas and outlets. I’ve been world-building a paradigm for a series of short stories to lead into a novel. I’ve continued my interests in technology and I.T. and have been building some interesting computers recently. And I’ve been working on some ideas with Gail too.
So I’ve decided that I’m going to try and restart this blog, with a wider scope, allowing me to post articles about pretty much anything that I’m doing and which I hope might be of interest to you guys. There’ll still be “Writing about writing music” to be found here, but there will also be writing about writing, writing about IT and writing about my life here in Spain and elsewhere. Maybe you’ll find something to engage you…
