2. I've been recording again, although none of it is post-worthy. I was talking with a friend last week about getting back to the writing grind after an extended hiatus; it can be disconcerting and/or discouraging when the first few things you turn out end up being utter garbage. Still, though, it's good to shake off the rust. As the weather gets cooler, and my office/studio gets less uncomfortable, I anticipate getting more and more productive.
