Every songwriter knows how hard it can be at times to sit down and write one more song.
Maybe you’ve been commissioned to write a song for a friend’s wedding. Or, maybe your upcoming album needs one more song before you can call it finished.
If you’ve been working hard at your craft, you might feel like you’ve drained all your ideas and have nothing left to offer.
So, here are some ideas on how to get unstuck if you’re starting to feel like your creative well is running dry.
Live A Little
Right now, you might feel like you’re under a lot of pressure, and you might even have a deadline looming over your head. But sometimes you need to live a little anyway.
When John Denver was going through a bit of a slump, he asked Tony Robbins for help. Robbins determined that Denver typically found inspiration in nature and while he was out skiing. When Denver was finding it hard to write, he wasn’t doing any of that. As soon as he got back out there, he found himself able to write again.
Try Another Instrument
Your primary instrument might be guitar, piano, or saxophone.
Regardless, transferring your song over to another instrument can prove inspiring and even eye-opening.
You don’t need to be a multi-instrumentalist to do this. You can break the song down into its key components and play a “minimum viable” version on another instrument. This can inspire new ideas to help you get out of that rut.
