I have been writing, though:
As of last night, Love is Not the Last Room is 17/18 done! Only one song left! It's a tough one, though- the last soprano solo. I've been wrestling with it for a while. Hopefully a good idea will come to me soon!
The 365 Project is coming along well. I finished Autumn back in December, and I'm really happy with it. I think it's one of the prettiest things I've ever written. I have mixed feelings about Winter so far, but the last few days have produced some music I like for that.
The Inspiration Ring has kind of taken a back burner for all of us, but it should get started up again soon.
As soon as LINTLR is completely finished, I need to dive headfirst into my orchestral piece that I've been talking about writing for such a long time. This really needs to be finished and in my portfolio!
Also, I have a new collaboration starting up soon: My friend Ashley Alden wants to create a staged song cycle, based on the life of Cleopatra, with me. She's writing the words and will sing it, and I just have to write the music! I'm looking forward to the project, though- I think it could be really interesting. More details to come on that project later.
Some other things I want to do soon:
-Review the CD of string quartets I recently got
-Blog about composing and songwriting with words first, or adding words to existing music
-Organize a recital - Yes, I know, ANOTHER one. I've been itching to get work performed again for a while!
So, this post's title: "Lots of progress, not much progress"
That's what I feel like lately. I'm getting a lot of work accomplished, but nothing's finished. I feel like I have nothing to show for all my work, but soon that will change.
