A Round Of Words In 80 Days
Check-In #2 - Sunday:

- I recorded every day music for at least 5 minutes, even on saturday. In the goals post I had said I wanted to record 'every day' but I had actually only meant every workday. Yet yesterday's unplanned additional recording session was the most fun and fulfilling yet.

I sang some latin songs I had learned a long time ago, some of them even in my early childhood.
Finally, after 10 minutes of singing all these (short) lovely latin songs that I have always loved I started improvising; I think that song ran for nearly five minutes.

Very beautiful. I love making music. <3


- So far I wrote for only one challenge, a very short piece.

It doesn't seem to work very well, so now I think I could expand it by maybe showing how the person paces their room while talking on the phone, absentmindedly tidying up, probably putting back things that would tell us more about what world we're in, whether the genre is actually Science Fiction or Fantasy, how close their world is to most of our realities ...

I am curious about getting these questions answered; I don't know it yet either. I just took the prompt and 'flew' with it.

So, just one. Today another deadline approaches, so I have to write another miniature to fill that challenge, too.

- I have figured out how to continue my novel and will start writing for it again very soon (tomorrow?).
I have also rediscovered half a dozen or so other novel ideas that I had developed years ago and that I still want to write because I still love them a lot.
I will see, I will see. :)

- I actually have started a course for learning to draw, and also reading one of these scientific books I had mentioned. Haven't done much for them, just something - which is enough for now.

Oh, that's it for the goals. Very good. I'm happy with the results.
Singing is indeed the easiest for me but that's hardly a surprise.
Writing on the other hand is as hard as ever. Then again, in some aspects it is very easy, too, and always fun.

All in all, I am really happy right now because I have these many new things to learn -- learning how to record multiple tracks for a cappella music, learning these basic lessons about technical drawing, and another course teaching some more indepth stuff about writing mostly on the word/style level, I believe.

I am so glad about that, because for some reason I get discouraged and bored when I have nothing new to learn.

The best teaching tool though is YouTube: sped up videos on drawing and painting.
I've always learned the most by watching others do it, so this is so utterly great and ideal for me, together with all the theoretical things I'm learning.



- Everyone's Check-In
