From Tom Ellard (of Severed Heads) by way of Eppy, the seven steps of writing music:

  1. You just wrote the music – it sounds great!
  2. Next day, you’re not so sure. Maybe some changes?
  3. Perhaps if I destroy some parts. Salvage Job.
  4. This music sucks no matter what I do to it. And using compression just ruined it.
  5. Oh that one, I can’t be bothered with it anymore.
  6. Well adding that seemed to have helped a lot. It’ll have to do.
  7. Hey, I don’t mind that at all!

Just speaking for myself, I spend a lot of time in steps 1 through 4. Five seems to surface after a few months have passed and I don’t know if I have anything I have written that has graduated to step 7. But hopefully one day….
