Why I Wrote a Book about Songwriting

In my many encounters with both aspiring and accomplished songwriters, it became apparent to me there’s one thing that nearly all writers wish they had more of: inspiration.

I am no exception. I know the frustration wanting desperately to write a song, but just not “feeling it”. I also know the joy of feeling like an entire song falls out of nowhere, and have longed for that to happen more frequently.

I figured that when I’m feeling uninspired, I must just not be looking hard enough. I wondered if there was a way to train the mind to see inspiration where it might previously have been overlooked. I started taking note of any techniques that helped me to get inspired and write more (and better) songs.

Then, when I started hosting songwriting workshops last year, I formulated specific exercises designed to help attendees overcome any obstacles they might face in their attempts at songwriting. I saw how well these techniques worked, and realised that there are probably lots of songwriters, of varying levels of experience, who could also benefit from them. Thus, I decided to put them into a book!

I didn’t write the book because I think I’m the best songwriter in the world, and you’re all just playing for second. I didn’t write it because I think you suck at songwriting and need my help. I didn’t write it to make thousands of dollars (although that would be nice). I wrote it because I found methods that work, and I wanted to share them. Also, I’ve always wanted to write (and finish) a book, so now I can cross that off my bucket list!
