How many of you have all these ideas running through your head and just don't know how to put it on paper? I go through this sometimes and I don't know what to do. I find myself sitting alone with a notebook and pen and all these amazing ideas for songs and then what???? Nothing!!! I have learned to just start with one idea and see where it takes me. What do you do when writing becomes hard for you?

Hi Peyton,

Each writer has their own method to combating these moments of frustration, and it is a matter of testing what works for you. If you already have an idea of a song, give the idea a title, and write to that title. Another thing you could do is find a picture or image that speaks to you, and write a story about that image. Does this help? I' happy to help give you some additional ideas to applying your written words to music. Just let me know!
