When writing music or lyrics, people sometimes are afraid of putting something down – as if they expect the first thing they write to be perfect, so they are petrified to be anything less than that.
We as composers have this belief of this fake phenomenon of hit songwriters sitting down and instantly writing a hit. Let me tell you;
- It took them a LONG time to get up to that skill.
- If they did write a hit song, it was probably there only one.
So my tip to you, is to write something – even if it is bad (in that case you can reflect on what you wrote and learn from it) – everyday. Set yourself 10-minutes in the morning as soon as you wake up for a creative free-write.
Think of it like this, the more you wait for a “hit” to come to you, the more your song writing will get constipated. However, the more you continuously write, the easier it will be to get those creative ideas out of the body and into the world.
