In this episode of The Lyric Writer’s Workroom Podcast, we’ll talk about some ways to help reduce the sense of pressure you may feel in your writing room. Whether you’re dealing with a close deadline for your sophomore major-label album release, or just trying to get fifteen solid minutes of your own material ready for your first open mic, I hope the tips here will help.
Here are some highlights, time stamped from the show:
00:45 — Stage fright doesn’t just happen onstage. We songwriters often find ourselves feeling pressure at home in our writing rooms, too.
04:24 — When you enter the room where you write songs, do you feel safe from the judgments of others and protected from the outside world?
04:50 — Could your cell phone be sabotaging your songs?
06:43 — Sometimes our dumbest song ideas have the most potential. It pays to be patient with them.
