Songwriting Tips

• Do it because it's fun, not because you want to achieve something.
• Write a lot, often, to get used to your own voice and trains of thought.
• Rather than "coming up with" ideas, relax and let images start appearing in your mind.
• Let your mind tell you a story, and write or record exactly what you see and hear.
• Write fast, without editing. Get all the ideas down, even if they seem ridiculous.
• Later, take the most interesting bits. It might only be a sentence! Just keep writing.
