Writing Lyrics: Find that place where your mind flows

I found that my mind flows most freely while in transit. For some reason when I’m walking, driving, or riding a bus, I just get flooded with ideas.  Then when I arrive to the destination, my mind is distracted by the purpose of my trip and all of my ideas escape somewhere! Weird right?

Oh well, as weird as it may seem,  I think we all have to find our special place where those creative juices can flow. When I think of writing, I picture an image of someone sitting at a desk with pen and paper in hand, furiously recording ideas. For some, that might be just the case, but if that doesn’t work for you and you find yourself stuck, why force it? Go sing in the shower, get out in the sun, go for a run, take a nap…whatever gets the brain-engine started. Sometimes we’ve gotta get creative to get creative!

One thought on “Writing Lyrics: Find that place where your mind flows

  1. If I’m on the bus alone I always get ideas. And got into the habit of recording them on my Blackberry.
    I used to use notebooks most of the time at home, now I’ve got a medium of one or the other. Or even my laptop.

    You never know when inspiration will hit.
