  1. Just make a start and keep going. Nothing ever happens unless you start and keep going. And even if it seems like crap do not throw it out. Put it to one side and come back later.

  2. Give yourself a day to write a song. “Don’t worry if it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear” 🙂
    Just tell yourself in the morning – “by the end of the day I will have a song, no matter how good or bad. That’s the challenge. Don’t be too precious and don’t approach it trying to write the best song that’s ever been written – that comes later.
    Use whatever skills you have. Remember that you will improve.
    So maybe it’s a very simple song, but you finish it and set it free. Then on another day, you do it again, and again…
    “Getting better all the time”
