With Mixed Messages, I'm trying to learn the idea of enough. It's one of the problems I most struggle with creatively. If no one intervenes, I will write and write and write. I will edit and edit and edit. It turns into working all day and all night. It turns into never turning off.
While creative breakthroughs often happen after spending more time thinking and doing, there's a point where the extra effort takes away from the music, like when excessive edits become noticeable.
I'd like to push myself to the limit, and then stop and back away before destroying what I love. I think that's enough.
