Songwriting Inspiration Starts with a Good Vibe

"Always leave enough time in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, even joyous. That has more of an effect on economic well-being than any other single factor.” (Paul Hawken)

When writing, if a song doesn’t flow from your pen, don’t force it. You cannot capture a good song if you are not having a good vibe. Remember, never stress if words are not flowing. Stop forcing yourself to write and do something you enjoy and feed your inner artist instead.

Afterwards, follow the road to your next music production, song or poem...

Avoid learning anything during this time. It takes practice to resist, however, learning during inspiration can stifle your flow and momentum of ideas.

Mankind's human mind just loves to categorize, stereotype, and label everything it understands and everything it doesn't understand. As writers, as soon as words hit paper, our thoughts tend to wander to what our words mean and how they will be interpreted before we even complete the thought or finish the song.

How to Unlock your Songwriting and Music Production

“We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other peoples’ models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open.” (Shakti Gawain)

When writing, don’t censor your ‘inner artist’. Let your emotions flow through your pen and let your creativity pour out onto your paper. Get your feelings and thoughts out of your head - don’t be scared of what’s inside you! Most importantly, capture the emotions of what you are writing.

You can always focus on structure or rewrite it again later but you may never feel that same emotion again... This applies to songwriting, music production or any type of creativity for that matter...
