You have to remain flexible, and you must be your own critic at all times.
If the secret should be known, which is not much of a secret at all, this is my hobby I love doing this. Anything else feels like work to me.
If something happened where I couldn't write music anymore, it would kill me. It's not just a job. It's not just a hobby. It's why I get up in the morning.
I wake up around noon, light a cigarette, get a cup of coffee, sit in the bathtub for an hour and daydream, and I usually come up with some ideas... It's a very irresponsible life. The only decisions I make are about the notes I'm writing.
