When embarking on the delicate process of songwriting, it can be tempting to hold off on committing to anything until the right inspiration strikes, but there is significant evidence that it may in fact be more beneficial to simply power through. Here we look at how you can train yourself to write a song in a day.
In this latest post to MusicThinkTank, contributor Sammy Hakim outlines how artists can work to develop the ability to compose a song in a single day.
"Song seeds are little ideas that pop in (and often out of) your head that seem mildly interesting. Whether it’s a full-fledged concept or just a funny sentence one of your friends said to you over the phone the other night, write it down, and come back to it later.
If you sit around waiting for inspiration to strike, you’ll be waiting forever. Having that list of interesting ideas in the palm of your hand certainly makes turning the flow of inspiration on and off a lot easier and quicker."
