I spent some time today getting the rough ideas in my head into a format where the guys could understand what the songs are supposed to be. Nothing usable, mind you, but a few accapella lines and some quick guitar vocals or keyboard/loop experiments put me in a position where I realized that there are nine song stubs there, and number 10 is in my head.  3-4 of them are actual "songs" that I can play and sing.

In other words, I have some confidence that I have a record for 2018.  Now whether half of it is any, well that's what February is for, I guess.  But I think between work travel, Valentine's Day, a 50th birthday party for my wife, and a much heavier work schedule than I've had in years, I'm still going to pull this off.  I wasn't so sure about that a couple of days ago.
