Weekly Wish: I wish I were a better arranger.
Means to the end: Cobble together a clever (I hope) medley of my favorite bits of the Oscar-nominated songs. Write out a chart using Finale.
I'm breaking my own rules. (As is my custom.) I'm supposed to move on to another project today - it's good for me to let go and allow something to marinate, and I don't have any work-related deadlines for my Wishes. I worked on Oscar songs last week... well, "worked"... I didn't spend much time, because it's hard to make it a priority with so much else going on. Especially since I'm a little hazy about what exactly I want to do, and am not totally in love with any of the songs (although I'm fascinated by the production on "If I Rise", and "We Belong Together" is fun). But I want to finish this Wish, and I don't see myself feeling motivated if I wait until next week when the Oscars are over.
I need a plan. I work well with specifics. Yesterday on the subway (where I do much of my thinking), I made a plan for my little mash-up. Now I have to see if I can make it work on the piano.
