When I come back later to something I've previously written I don't always remember all the details of my design. If a long enough period of time has gone by it can almost be like analyzing an alien score. I've tried keeping notes but in the throes of composition this can really slow me down. Perhaps I just haven't hit on the right level of detail or the right things to note. Or perhaps it is one of life's tradeoffs.
Does anyone else have this problem and if so what if anything do you do about it?
