Writer's Block!
on: May 19, 2016, 12:19:53
Hey everyone!

So for the last couple of weeks I've been experiencing some
Really bad writer's block. Although I have a number of ideas for songs when I
Sit down to write I go blank or the song I come up with feels really forced. Usually when I write a song it resonates with me and it feels more natural to write.

Have any of you guys faced writer's block, and any tips to start writing good music again!  ::OSMAN::

I've always thought my last one maybe the last one, but another one seems to come. The thing I've come to discover is that music should be shared. I've always kept it a private thing.

On one note, I've worked on my songs for years and years because I play them for myself on my guitar all the time.(you would think they would be better  :D) - so maybe if you go back and play your old stuff you'll find your mojo again.

Since I discovered Sound Cloud as an outlet for my music I've started writing again.  So, I guess that's one thing - putting it out there to be listened to, may bring new ones to be listened to.

One other thing is I'll write a really bad one (one that even I think stinks)- put it in my folder to never see the light of day, but, for me, it kind of primes the pump.

The one thing I'm still trying to figure out is - why do I have so many followers on Sound Cloud and yet when I post a song only three or four listeners?  ::heart:: ::headphone::

Yep I'm in the middle of one, because I am working on too many projects at the same time (collabs). And that's stupid of me, because I know (in my case) that it comes when it comes. And when you force it, it doesn't come.
Great point there @vincent_stewart about sharing, I agree. Especially in this kitchen. When you're stuck, just share and others might spark some new idea's for your song (or lead to a collab).
@Neimo yes we certainly agree!
@EvanC1992 hopefully that's helpful, and please share so we can help! I was very impressed by your latest finished work, so we know what you can do. So no need to be afraid that you make a fool out of yourself by posting your new material that doesn't sound right to you yet... Just see what new idea's others come up with and use them/learn from them!

I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

my tip is:
Don't force yourself, when writer's block strikes......that works
well most of the time

no really, it does  8) 8) 8) 8)
go back and only do things that you like!
could be within the music hobby

or outside

but, i usually just do things like... play and program a loud beat, four to the floor
a thing like that...that gets me going, i tune down expectations and put fun first

it really works for me
