Songwriting Tips: Writer’s Block Blues


Picture this. An illustrator is flustered beyond belief. In his trashcan are hundreds of crumpled up papers of “failed” works. He is trying to draw a house, but to no avail. Again, he grabs a new piece of paper, shakes his aching wrists and begins to draw a line. After a minute he stops and examines his work. He has successfully drawn a very cool looking cube.

“This is no good!” he screams, crumples up the paper and tosses it into the trashcan with his other crumpled friends. Somehow, it is all uninspiring to him. His last illustration of a house was to die for. And now… nothing.
