Reminds me a bit of a writing class I was in a very long time ago -- Each student had to write one new poem every day -- 5 a week for three weeks. Each poem had to be in a specific format with unusual restrictions that changed for every assignment (rough example: "Write a sonnet on a natural subject, don't use any adverbs"). Doing stuff on a regular schedule like this is great -- you will generate lots of new ideas -- and the results you have so far sound pretty good. The pitfall I've run into with this approach is then re-visiting those ideas and creating a finished track. The way to handle that is to create some sort of deadline -- a live gig, or an art show...
