I like to have a plan. My family often teased me for requiring a preconceived plan when playing imaginary games as a little kid. My friends like to point out that I have been known to schedule an evening to be spontaneous and then plan out the details. I even have a daily plan that structures how I intend to make additional plans. As a complete departure from my normal modus operandi, some of my creative endeavors are more like vague generalities. I have been planning a Sad Cover Song series for almost two months. The first installment of the series is scheduled for next week. I had selected the first song and worked on an arrangement but I had no plan on how to accomplish my goals. To be honest, I had no goals, only a notion. How and where would I release this first episode? How would the videos look? Would I do anything to promote the series? What happens after I record the first song? The whole point of this series is to study and analyze sad songs. Playing a cover and putting the video on social media does not qualify as a deep dive into the emotional content of the song. I had no plan for this project. I sat down last night and did what I do best. I now have some vague generalities and a plan.
