I believe that keeping records is important. Everywhere from tracking finances to keeping a journal or personal history. The reason we have such great stores of knowledge on so many subjects is because someone somewhere decided to write it down.
Keeping records provides multiple benefits to the writer: everything from allowing him or her to reflect and evaluate, to letting them track their progress and see how far they've come in whatever their endeavour. It also allows other interested parties to keep up to date.
For these reasons and more I'm opening up my whole process to anyone who wants to follow. Every day that I work (which ideally should be at least Monday-Friday) I will provide a short commentary on what I've accomplished. Maybe I'll even comment on days that I didn't do anything just to help myself be more accountable.
So visit often if you'd like to see the behind-the-scenes of new concert music. See you tomorrow!
