I have listened to this album so many times now. I listened to it today two and a half times while working on a writing project. Actually, I got stalled on the same work of short fiction I've been writing forever while listening. For a moment, I thought the music was distracting me. Then I switched to working on another project, a novella, and the music just pushed me right along. There was no problem with the music. Only a problem with the project.
When do you give up on something? What do you get when you cross an elephant and a rhino?
Fortunately, I'm going to step away from the thing that's been giving me so much trouble. I won't step away for long. Just a couple days or so. Then hopefully I can return to it with fresh eyes and see what's what. Now I've said about all I want to say on the matter, but I made a promise to myself that today I would write for a minimum of two hours. I allowed myself to include this blog-writing as part of that time. There's fifteen minutes left in the hour. What now?
