Finished Ultimate Crash course on Youtube

I couldn't fully practice everything in the tutorial because I didn't have good sample videos. Looking back, I could just have shot new ones from the coworking...

Overall, it was a solid brainstorm. I want to go more in details about the clips to take.

10/31/2018 9:46:1810/31/2018Writing a book in Spanish
Started translating the preface.
Google Translate. A little.
307
I didn't have to use Google Translate that much. I'm a little slow though and I have to think really hard about my words.
If I continue at this speed, I certainly won't be finished by the end of the month.

Learned some of the basics of epic music
https://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/a-guide-to-producing-an-epic-orchestral-track--audio-13389
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%E2%80%93V%E2%80%93vi%E2%80%93IV_progression
203
I must admit not understanding 50% of what they're talking about... Maybe I should start with learning terms in music first.

I'm getting the hang of the terms. I rated 7 because I'm not sure if they'll stick yet.
I learned using piano concepts but it should apply for what I'm trying to achieve.

I should re-read what I wrote before going to bed.

11/2/2018 9:03:4011/2/2018Writing a book in Spanish
Only a very small part of the first chapter.
Google Translate205
A quote from a reader was really hard to translate as it wasn't "proper" English and used phrases that don't translate well in other languages.

Google Translate307
I didn't do that much, but I'm very proud of some hard sentences I've managed to translate well.
I'm definitely learning at a very rapid pace and I love this. I need to find someone to proofread my stuff regularly though.

The loops were not excellent. Plus, once in FL Studio, they sound like shit.
