Speed Songwriting Tips
When you’re under pressure, you don’t have time to be fussy. Just go with the flow of whatever comes out first.
Don’t worry about ‘perfect’. It is what it is and you can polish your song up later.
Think about what it is you’re writing about. A relationship like my song? A politician like Minky’s song? A personal reflection like Housey’s song? Pick a topic, brainstorm a few lyrics and go with it.
