100 Days of Writing Music - Update #2


It’s hard to believe, but I’m over halfway through my 100 Day Project, 100 Days of Writing Music. Since April 4, I have written 8 measures of music daily (okay, I missed one day, but that’s okay, I’m adding a day on the end), and today I’m on Day 58!

I’m still really enjoying it, and it doesn't feel like a burden - I could continue for an indefinite amount of time (maybe I will!) All of the observations I made in my first update on Day 23 are still true, and I’m excited to be accumulating more music and more finished pieces, including Rusty’s Dream, about this guy:  

This is our album cover. Just kidding, he's not on the album.

I’ve also recorded more of the pieces from the last 58 days, which you can listen to on my SoundCloud page here. I just uploaded 6 more today! There are a few I’m waiting to record until I finish them, but I’ll plan to keep uploading more each week.

You can follow along on my Instagram here, with the hashtag #100daysofwritingmusic, and watch Instagram Stories for videos of me playing them.

Have you ever taken on a specific daily creative challenge? If so, tell me about it in the comments!
