But before you dismiss Shaw's notational innovations as youthful affectation (she's only 30), have a listen to the music they produce.

Nice blog.  Actually, more information than blogs usually provide.  Shelle Soelberg (Arizona State U) has a ton of info about writing music.  Much of it is good for younger composers and arrangers.

 

Be sure to check out the right-hand column with the specialized posts!!

'If your story had a soundtrack, what would it be?' I commonly ask fellow writers this question. Writing – good writing – moves to a rhythm and flows in the same manner as music.
John Metcalf's insight:

Good questions on the WHYs of writing music.  Unmotivated?  Give it a shot.  Also, there is a great book to read, The War of Art.  Look for it!!

John Metcalf's insight:

If you want to write music for games (and, who doesn't want that large of an audience for your music), there are some good points at this blog.  And, most importantly, it is not a "classified blog" of folks looking for work.

 

Some of the math "stuff" is over the top, but good info.
