Opus 1

The 24 bars which sounded perfect yesterday don’t sound nearly so good now. Apparently, creativity likes to play tricks on the mind.

It’s not that they sound bad. It’s just that they’re not right for the piece I’m working on. Sometime yesterday, I slipped from working on one composition into creating another. I have no idea how it happened.

So now I need something else to fill up the space where the 24 bars used to be. How do other composers do this? Professional composers sound so sure-footed; when I listen to their compositions, I find it hard to believe that they’ve ever taken this kind of misstep.

I suppose that practice makes perfect. I hope that one day, I’ll be able to look back on the troubles of today and chuckle.
