The last few months haven't been terribly conducive to production.
They have indeed been terrible.
I'm banking on the fact that it's all grist to the creative mill.
Rest assured I won't be wearing hats anytime soon.

Up to this point the music has pretty much followed the rules of writing - you've seen the theme originate and be developed - but traditionally at this point - I would be polishing and tweaking the previous piece - and that's not what I want to do.
I have no intention of following the rules of writing.
Seriously - I suspect most of the rules are just common sense anyway - I mean really - you need 5 rules to help you write? Here's one rule for you:
I'll add a second:
There - that should just about do it.
I truly believe that someone who writes and reads their work five times over will produce a much better result than someone who writes once, learns a lesson and then applies it once and moves on.
I believe in my balls, that when it comes to the creative arts, there is no substitute for doing it.
Sure - you should read and be aware of the canon, there is much to learn - but when it comes to your own original work - that can only come from you - and how else are you going to learn your work unless you do it?
So - you can of course use this structure to produce a piece of writing fit for the world and who knows - maybe it is or maybe you just polished a turd. Or you can take the rule book and throw it away - and write.
This is the Music to Write to playlist and I am interested in serious writers -if you're a writer and you want help writing - welcome - I wrote this for you.
Forget everything else...
put this on...
You're a fucking writer!
