You can also take the song in its self-inspired new direction and see where it leads. There's no rule that says that one song can't eventually become two or more songs. Also you can distance yourself from it. Or you can add all types of stuff to it and build it up ad nauseum. Then strip away whatever isn't rain (if that's still what you want).

I originally started out feeling really connected with the idea. My intention was to to make the piece somewhat sound like a rain storm. And I was definitely feeling the connection between what I had made so far and the vision that I had in my head which was simply rain. Now I seem to have lost that initial feeling. Ism wondering if it is due to me being distracted from that feeling and trying harder to make the song sound "Good" maybe?
