Sometimes, having a block comes from the opposite of what you expect. Instead of having little-to-no ideas, you might have too many. In most cases, being imaginative and creative to the point where you have an overflow of ideas is not a bad thing… but it can cause a feeling of being overwhelmed on not knowing which of your fantastic ideas to start.
My suggestion would to do the following:
- Physically write all of your ideas down (don’t keep them in your head)
- Revise them and see which ones will work best for your next composition
- Take those ones and order them in level of importance
- Revise the list again into an order that the piece will progressively use
From there you can use this as a checklist for your composition being sure to accomplish the ideas that you had in a step-by-step manner that will also make the music flow from smallest to largest in scale on what you consider to be important musical aspects.
