|I am on my laptop as I write this. Just to paint a picture of how I write, and what method I use: |
PS, I use a great hi fi headphones ($75, that's actually a cheap price) and can really appreciate when the bass comes in on the phones.
- I do preliminary research on each band prior to listening to the CD. I write fragmented notes and copy blatantly their biography using google docs.
- The reason I use google docs is so I can access this information on any computer, I work between my desktop and my laptop.
- I will also be listening to the album and writing/modifying my entry and a song will ultimate catch my attention. I will then make notes about this particular song and what I want to talk about, etc.
- That's pretty much it, typically spend about 3 hours on an article, mostly due to researching and 1 hour of actual listening. Sometime I spend more time with an album if I feel I need to pay more attention to it, especially if I'm distracted while listening to it the first time around.
