First Movement of Symphony Complete!

Whew! I finally finished the first movement of my Symphony No 1. Well, I'm not entirely finished, I'll probably go back and do a little polishing, but most of the work is done. It's six and a half minutes and in my favorite key: C major! The Symphony is entitled "The Competition" because it was written for Garritan's Orchestration Competition:

I'll officially post the MP3 on the music website in about a month, after I get some feedback from friends and make any changes I need to, but already you should be at least somewhat giddy inside. He he he. I'm not sure when I'll finish the second and third movements, but probably not for a while. I may even wait and enter them into next year's competition.

Also, November is National Novel Writing Month, commonly known as NaNoWriMo. The idea is to write and entire novel, of at least 50,000 words, in a month. It's insane, and I've never been able to do it before, but I'm gonna try. Check out NaNoWriMo at:

By the way, I didn't win a darn thing in that tutorial contest I mentioned in a previous blog. Oh well, too bad.

That's all for now. November will certainly be a busy month. So get to work.

Over and out.
