Remember newspapers? Those things that you would get every morning and trust on accurate news coverage, but because it was a process to sit down an read an article, we’ve transcended into using whatever trending topic appears on our phone as reliable information?
Yeah, those newspapers.
Well, they don’t have to be a fossil anymore. To first installment of beating writer’s block is to take a news article headline and sing it. Craft a melody that would fit the words of the title – so make sure that it is relatively long in length, possibly a sentence.
Once a version is created, make a variation or a new version of a melody singing the headline. Along the way; be a little bit critical and make edits to they rhythm, flow, intervals, and contour of it.
Finally, erase the words you were using. Now, you can take the melody elsewhere and use it as an individual theme, or put new lyrics on top of it. Possibilities are endless!
