    I ask this question, because us as creators constantly innovate ourselves. I would like to know how other creators think whether it be in quantity, quality or both in regards to be realistic about creating music everyday.

    It is very realistic to create new concepts everyday.

    I'm big on quality more than quantity as the latter is synonymous with microwave music and lyrics which are a symptom of the instant gratification era. I don't write everyday but I'm conditioned to where when I do have writer's block I never force anything.

    Could care less. Do what you feel like as that is not part of music theory.

    If you create a song or an idea every day, do you finish a single one of them?

    I read a lot about people having 100's of unfinished songs on their HD's.

    I think it needs more dedication to finish a song to start a new idea. How good is an unfinished idea?

    Let me ask a counterquestion: what is finished? One man's unfinished track is another man's minimal techno, right?

    Joking aside, it's probably not realistic to create and finish new ideas every day, but it is damn good training to try... and an excellent idea to overcome creative block:
    Set yourself a challenge like: I'm gonna make 3 tracks in 3 days. I'm gonna make 3 tracks using the exact same soundset, or just this one instrument...
    I'm gonna take my laptop and work in a different environment..

    I'm not saying they'll be the greatest songs ever, but you have to keep finding ways to challenge yourself and keep things interesting and fun for you.
    If you're not inspiring yourself, your stuff isn't gonna inspire anyone else either... it's that simple.

    No it's not. Not even the most brilliant of minds can keep that up indefinitely. It's not simply unrealistic, it's impossible.
