What do musicians do when they're 'busy doing nothing'?

In rehearsals with Rickety Wireless

Well at the moment, off the top of my head;
Maintaining 8 Social Media Sites, 2 proper websites and a mailing list.
*Making finishing touches to a 'home movie' style music video.

*Planning bespoke music lessons for each of my students.
*Researching appropriate material for each individual student based on their own requirements, level and interest.
*Planning a couple 'rig rundown' style youtube posts.
*Catching up on another month's worth of accounts.
*Digital marketing.
*Sending tracks to radio stations.
*Testing/experimenting with new pedal board sounds (more on this soonish).
*Recording a guide track for a potential track on the next Blue Yellows release.
*Scheduling Spring/Summer 2018 gigs.
*Writing and recording for a solo album that I definitely won't have time to release until late 2018 or more likely 2019.
*Rehearsing for 3 types of live show, solo singer/songwriter, original band (The Blue Yellows) and commercial cover band (Rickety Wireless).
*Getting some 'home made' CD versions of Raffesia Dreams made up for a mini-run.
