Creativity


Songwriting is one part work, and one part pure creativity. Once you have a great idea, you have to put the in the time and sweat to turn it into something that people want to hear again and again. But without that great idea to start with, well, you haven’t got much without it.

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep”. - Scott Adams

What is good art and where does it come from? Good art makes you feel. Whether it’s a painting, poetry, a song or a performance, it must connect with your soul. The short answer is that no one really knows. The long answer is, it comes from within. There is an amazing and largely untapped source of creativity within every one of us. We are born with this incredibility powerful ability, and sadly, most of us have spent a lifetime repressing it.

"I never wanted to be famous. I only wanted to be great". - Ray Charles

Sometimes you’re left with more questions than answers, some of the best art in the world seems beyond human understanding. Perhaps the artist themselves don’t fully understand what it all means.

After all, your art is an interpretation of your experiences translated through a medium ( auditory or visual ) And then re-interpretted through someone elses senses and perceptions. So where does it come from?

“My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all”.
- John Lennon

It’s time to retrain your brain. As a songwriter (a hyper-creative being) you are going to start using a lot more of your brain. This will be fun, being creative is supposed to be fun! Sure, there’s always some frustration with creating art, I find for me that happen later on as I am trying to refine and perfect something. When I’m in the pure creative mode, I’m happy like a child. Remember how I said there’s a playground in your head?
Well it’s time to get in there and have a little fun!

“It's hard to be fully creative without structure and constraint. Try to paint without a canvas. Creativity and freedom are two sides of the same coin. I like the best of both worlds. Want freedom? Get organized. Want to get organized? Get creative”. - David Allen

I want you to start approaching every decision in your life with this question – what are my options. Question everything! I’m not saying you need to get militant about anything, just explore. I want you to question yourself more than anything. The point I’m trying to make is to GET OUT OF YOUR RUT, go with your gut. Get your brain active and exploring again. Start in the morning and approach every decision with options and interest instead of boredom and repetition.

I try so hard to live in the moment - I don't think ahead very much. - Sarah McLachlan

Go to work a different way, do your hair a new way, walk instead of ride, ride instead of drive. Do anything that isn’t ordinary. This will help put your brain into creative mode more often, and help keep you there for longer. I cannot stress enough the power of your thoughts and perceptions. You must make the choice to perceive your surroundings from an observant creative standpoint if you want to be a conduit for expression.

"I do a so-called trip into myself: I sit down at the piano and the melody might start to evolve from my playing or then I might start to sing it." - Enya

As a songwriter, a hyper-creative being, that is what you are. It is your job to tell the story and express the emotions behind it. It takes a creative and open personality to express humanities fears, hopes and dreams. You are unique and you’ve had experiences no one else has had, through these eyes of experience you pass down your vision. This already makes your song unique.
