Well, I sure didn’t spend any time writing this summer. I did a lot of journaling, went on tour, and have worked on several music projects. I got a job, and have been struggling with how to be creative while being suffused with information and practice in that realm.
No I’m sitting here, about to enter into November, and remembering that at this time of year I tend to feel very down, very much like a failure. Which is perfect for me to get creative.
That’s the Catch 22 for my creative output - I do best when I’m feeling down. I don’t like to feel depressed, but I write better when I am. So, I guess I’m ready to go, because man am I in the pits theses days.
I’m trying to channel the dark thoughts and the dark feelings into a dark album next month. I want to release a 7” record and a full-length tape. I want it to be me at my most sincere, not only about what I write but about what I want things to sound like. I don’t want to be influenced by anything outside of my own mind.
We’ll see how it goes.
