Music Composers Unite!
Absolutely. It was harder earlier on. But now it only lasts for as long as it takes me to start a new piece. There is that concern that "what if" where/who I have sent it to never gets the opportunity to place it or use it, and then it sits forever. But the business side is a numbers game, just keep writing.
The question I ask myself usually is: what if I got some limited amount of ideas and now I have one less and it might be wasted
It's true that the feeling lasts until the next project, though.
Again, you have voiced the same question I have periodically. "Will my musical creativity run dry?"
I guess it is like a river, there might be periods where the flow is minimal or less abundant than we wish, but before you know it, rain falls from the heavens and we are full again.
well, me I don't... whatever happens it is I who created it.. well.. first of all the original idea was,, "to make music for them" and that's it, we're commissioned right?... I always own my music... but of course... I'll not use on another material...
