Well, this is not really something that makes me shout: “I’m a writer now!”. It’s just a magazine article, not a book. But, since I hadn’t been publishing anything for nearly two years, I feel I must share my joy for this accomplishment.
The December issue of InSound, a major music magazine in Italy, will include a long feature of mines, with an overview on music notation software. This is sort of a mini-essay, 4000 w. / 30000 c. long, speaking of technology, its implementation into existing programs, and the reasons why some musicians should like or dislike a certain kind of software.
In my continued effort to dismiss myself, I concluded my writing career during 2005 with a review on Sibelius, the music notation software. Now I’m back with an article including the same software. Sort of a “welcome back”, that was made possible by the pleasure of writing, I rediscovered when putting my hands on Scrivener. Another series of articles is on the way for this, and my old magazine (now owned by the major economic newspaper in Italy).
I owe a lot to our beloved program for this rebirth. Maybe I can even finish my NaNo, now!
