“There are no shortcuts to songwriting,” some will say.
But if you’re taking the long way, then there are several shortcuts that you can take.
Take a look back at the last 30 days. How many songs did you write?
My survey data tell me that most site visitors have written no more than 0-4 songs on average.
Something tells me that’s not enough for you.
You’re here at Speed Songwriting because you’re intrigued by the idea of writing faster. And it is possible.
You might have that voice in the back of your head saying, “quality is more important than quantity,” and you probably already know what an empty cliché that is. It’s head trash.
You literally can’t write better songs without writing more songs. Therefore, the odds of writing a great song are a positive function of the total songs written. It’s that simple.
Write MORE. Increase your odds of writing something good.
Write LESS. Decrease your odds of writing something good.
Quantity beats quality every day. It’s counter-intuitive but true.
When you focus on quality too much, you become a perfectionist with an inner-critic that slows down your songwriting, and it’s one reason you’re not finishing songs.
There’s a time and place to focus on quality, but it’s not while you’re writing. It’s after you’ve written the first draft with warts and all. It’s one of the first lessons every songwriter needs to learn and never forget.
If you’re tired of being hyper-critical of your songwriting, I can help you overcome your perfectionism and regain some lost time. But only if you don’t wait any longer.
Another day without a song written is another day lost. I believe that you can do this. You can finish songs faster, and you can be proud of them too.
