Writing 24/7

Not all of us have the luxury of being full time songwriters. Many of us have day jobs, as well as time-consuming responsibilities to family, community and elsewhere. If your goal is to become a successful songwriter and you are passionately committed to it, try to incorporate writing into the other areas of your life.

One example is keeping a journal, something we’ve recommended in the past. Another is the lost art of letter writing. Not email, but personal letters. Another is writing in your day job. Ideally you do some type of writing in your day job, at least an occasional business letter or report.

The more you write, the better you’ll get, whether it’s prose, poetry, non-fiction, journalism, children’s books, blogs or the community newsletter. And the better you get at the written word, the better and more facile a lyricist you’ll become.

Let the world know you’re a songwriter and proud of it, with Songwriter’s Tip Jar caps, T’s, sweatshirts, mouse pads and other swag. Check out the swag here.
