Here’s a video of me writing a song.
If you’ve ever been curious about what my writing process is like, this is a chance to watch me in action. I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired when I was writing this song, but I kept writing anyway. That’s kind of the secret to writing songs – just do it – and if you think the song is boring, cheesy, awful, etc., just keep writing. It might not end up being the best song ever – it could even be the worst song ever. But then there will be a song in the world where previously there had been none. And I think one song (even the worst) is better than nothing.
I *have* been curious, actually! So this was very illuminating. Thank you!
You are very welcome, Lisa. 🙂
Thanks for that – it was really fun to watch your process.
You’re welcome, April. It was fun (if a little scary) to do.
Thanks Nate, that really has been inspiring!
You’re very welcome, Annika. My hope is that I can help inspire people to try writing songs (or keep writing them).
Oh, I never saw your reply until now…well, I just love your attitude about songwriting. And yes, your video made quite a change for me, maybe not at once, but the change is coming slowly and there’s no stopping it. So, thanks again for posting it!
I loved this! It was fun seeing the process, and I really enjoyed hearing you sing it.
amazing. a terrific song. i like that you did not kill yourself to rhyme every line. it seems like you have more lyric freedom when you don’t rhyme all the time. woops. i rhymed. twice.
