I’ve had people admit to me they don’t like writing. They almost hate it.
So then why do they do it?
Because they love to have written.
For some people going through the process of writing a song, for instance, is arduous work.
They feel lost, doubting whether this line is right, or that phrase is off…
They grind their way through and after a while… a song is born.
At that point, they now love to have written.
For others, it’s not that way, they like the whole process.
Could be, just perhaps, the people who find the process of writing to be not so enjoyable as having written, because they need a little help in the techniques and skill… or even a change of perspective.
Hey, I’ve ran into this myself.
I even called up a Nashville-based hit writer at one of my bluer moments years ago just to talk about this very thing. I’ll not say his name in case he didn’t want this getting out…
You know what he told me?
“There are times in my career I’d rather vomit than write a song.”
Yuck. That’s pretty bad.
Hey, it happens. But, we can eliminate that feeling by feeding the muse with new, or even old, techniques we didn’t know about or forgot over time.
That’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.
That’s what TuneBooster is… keeps you thinkin’.
April’s is up. We cut you lose on three lyrics. Let you run with it melody and phrasing-wise, and then you do a little comparison.
All good fun. Plus, we got some assignments for ya, and the usual, perhaps unusual, object writing prompts.
