Year of Experiments: February is Early Month

31 Jan

January was the “ease in slowly” month. Photos are phun. I finally found the joys of Instagram, so there’s that. As I mentioned earlier, it’s nice to have to stare at seemingly mundane situations and have to pull a photo out of them (as in, “CRAP I haven’t taken a photo yet today quick!”). Art is everywhere.

I have decided February will be a little more (ok a lot more) hardcore.

Some of you all might remember my Early Year (I hope you do, it’s an album of mine – hey, iTunes!).

The premise was that I got up early every morning to write. I worked my guv’ment job back then and I had to be at the office at 7:30, so I was up at 5:30 on most days. I wrote that album in the wee hours, and it was a good routine to be in.

I have done other routines since then (mostly at other times of day), but I always think about that process and how well it worked.

Here we go again. Early Month. 5:30 AM. 5 days a week at least. This will be harder, maybe…because we have gigs and will be traveling some, but I think I can swing it. The ultimate purpose is to write daily, and if 5:30 is how I’m going to do it, then so be it. This month seems good because it’s a lot of Texas gigs. March is out of the question. April is far away.

Let’s do it! It’s 11:20 PM already… I need pass out immediately for this to start without a grumble.
