I’m getting better at not being affected by other people’s reactions when I give a negative response when asked ‘how the music is going’. Not that it’s not going at all; I’m doing a bit of teaching, which is a pile of fun, and the band is still practicing together, with no gig set in the future. We’re playing just for fun; what a concept!
The songs will come, but I have no plans to push them until February, when I plan to take on the RPM challenge (rpmchallenge.com). At that point, I have no guarantees what will come out. I haven't been thinking about music, or listening to much music, but I know ideas are percolating. Sometimes it's best to leave the subconscious alone to do its work.
