Day 13: Challenges Galore

13 Aug

Blaugust Entry, Day 13

So, I’m starting to get hooked on these challenges.

I’m finishing Day 32 of my 60-day Hero’s Journey workout challenge and I’m feeling great. This Blaugust challenge is nearing it’s halfway mark as well.

This past year of blogging has given me a few critical improvements in my life. Here are some:

  1. An outlet for expressing my real thoughts. Something I have difficulty doing with the spoken word.
  2. Improved facility at articulating my thoughts, even verbally (see 1).
  3. Coupled with Hero’s Journey, these challenges are letting me form some great life habits.
  4. An opportunity to write, and write often.
  5. An organized approach to creating content.

This last one is especially important.

I have spent over half of my life immersed in music, but composition has always been difficult for me. I think I realize now that it’s not the lack of ideas, but the lack of a workflow. I realized that creative workflow is very different from a non-creative workflow, and I never understood how to create effectively. Blogging and writing has helped me to create an effective way in which to produce content in a relatively short amount of time.

Hopefully, I can put this to use in my musical journey as well.

I don’t know if I want to make this a daily challenge yet, but this is my first entry into my self-inflicted “Music Challenge”.

The concept is for me to create short and quick compositions without worrying too much about the quality of the recording. Eventually, I should develop a workflow where I can churn out longer and more complete compositions.

Here’s the first one, inspired by my recent reunion with Rock!

The drums are sampled, but the guitars and bass are all me. 🙂

Onward, to Day 14!
