I grew up in Boy Scouts. I earned Eagle, so I guess I'm an Eagle Scout for life. Having said that, I'm prepared. It is the scout motto after all...
As a creative, being prepared is one of the most important lessons I've learned through the years. I cannot tell you how many times I find random pieces of paper, napkins, business cards, etc lying around with bits and pieces of song ideas scribbled on them.
My iPhone has become invaluable! I have tones of voice memos with melody or riff ideas, recorded. Some songs are process. But in my experience, those are the ones that sound like process - and who likes process?
If not for being prepared and having the tools I need in hand, who knows how much creativity might be lost and forgotten?
