Here we go... Right, I have no problem writing a tune, just get your head down and get on with it, sorted. At most it'll take me a week to get the ideas fleshed out and in a workable order, it can be difficult at times but overall it's not a problem. What is a problem, is the big stuff. That vast opus of epic proportions that's so easy to visualise, but my interest in the writing process is so fleeting it seems to never get anywhere, then a new project or deadline comes along so that takes precedence, and we're back to square one. At this point I'm about 4 months into a project and still only about 1/3 of the way done, the hardest part probably being deciding on an overall style, without narrowing my boundaries too much. (should be outside compatible as well as being obviously 'me') The actual sound design isn't a struggle when it comes to it, more the philosophical implications of actually making a firm decision on aesthetic. So, what do you find helps you keep on track with the bigger projects?
