It Varies from Song to Song

The process of songwriting occurs in various ways. Some people have a consistent system in which they write, but with me it varies from song to song. Sometimes, I can play a few chords on the guitar, and those chords inspire the words and melody. Other times, I can be driving down the road, or doing daily task, and all of a sudden, I am flooded with ideas. I have experienced instances where I was able to write about a specific topic in the heat of the moment; while others, I had to wait until I could clear my mind. I have found that there is no true formula that works every time. Which is why, it is necessary for me to allow myself to be open to finding inspiration from various sources. The more I allow myself to embrace and be inspired by my surroundings, the more fluid my writing becomes.
