Recording Artist Advocate: Inspiration and how to find it…

An artist I work with is in the control room editing vocals while I write this. He just finished his latest CD and songs are still pouring out as fast as he can write them down. Has that ever happened to you?

I was at a writing class in Austin last week and the presenter was very insistent that you write… even when you don’t feel inspired.

Write, “I can’t think of anything to write.”

The act of writing and accessing that part of your brain will eventually pay off. After that it’s editing and re-writing. He even said that he doesn’t believe in “writer’s block”. If you have something to say, start writing and it will come together.

Your writing feeds on itself, and if you do it enough you will get inspired. That part of your brain will click on and you may find yourself more productive than ever.

When you get in that mode, good stuff keeps coming out. So write, and keep doing it.

I also read that poetry and music bypass the analytical part of your brain. You can excite your creativity by reading poetry exactly like working out exercises your muscles.

So, write, and write some more.    

Sorry for such a short post. 

The best part of what we do here at Rough Wood Recording Studio is when we catch lightning in a bottle. That has been happening tonight and I can't wait to get back in the studio.
