"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination".

- Albert Einstein

 

Starting at the start or at the title of the song would seem like the obvious choice. This may be your biggest mistake! If you are reading this it’s probably because you have spent hours sitting in front of the blank screen or paper, wondering how to start writing, or what to start writing. Just coming up with a good title can prove to be a hurdle you can’t get over on any given day. My advice is to save the title for last; by the end of the song you will have a few “hooky” parts to choose a title from.


What Part Should I Start With?

One of the most common questions we hear is “what part of the song should I start with when I’m writing?” The part that you’re feeling right now is always my first answer. I’m a huge believer in intuitive writing and doing what you feel like at the time. So my answer is, write what you are feeling right now. Lyrics or music, it doesn’t matter, which do you find slightly easier to do? Just write about what comes out from you first.

"The only source of knowledge is experience".

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them".

"There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there".

all the above quotes - Albert Einstein

Write What Comes First

Lyrics are always easier when you are really feeling it. I always get great results when writing lyrics intuitively. When next you’re inspired to write a song, try this. Write whatever comes out first and don’t stop. Don’t worry too much if stuff doesn’t rhyme yet, or if some phrases don’t have the right meter or rhythm. Don’t stop to figure out chords or structure, if it comes, write it down. If there is a melody going through your head as the words are flowing, then use it and have fun with it, but don’t stop to figure it out on your instrument yet, just keep writing. This intuitive writing technique is covered in depth in the Idea Generator.

Where Does a Song Come From?

This is indeed the million-dollar question, and I discuss this topic at length in my book, The Idea Generator. When a song (or part of one) is coming to you, it may be just a tiny little idea or one good hook line. If you remain receptive, you may get a couple of verses and a chorus. You may get a stream of garbled consciousness, 3 pages long. What ever you are receiving, this is the place to start writing from!
