Clicking A Button

By C. LaRene Hall

Getting an idea should be like sitting down on a pin; it should make you jump up and do something. That sounds easy enough, but rarely does it work that way.

On the computer if you look up book writing ideas, there are 70,100,000 results. I can narrow my search by putting in story ideas, and get 22,100,000 or fantasy writing ideas and only get 474,000 places to look.

No one with a computer should ever lack an idea. They are as close as the click of a button. It’s what you do with the idea, that really counts.

I have pages and pages of ideas, but sometimes I don’t know what direction to go with it. Writers block is not my problem. I noticed Keith is having as much trouble getting inspired as I am. One idea can take just too many directions. I honestly can’t think of a topic we haven’t already covered. I think I’m like Darvell and just need a brain jumper cable. Since I haven’t missed a week since we started this blog. I had to write something.

Sorry this one isn’t more inspiring. My best advice today is to keep writing.

Sometimes, with writing songs anyway, the process is different. Songwriters in the past have written so many songs that it's hard to find new ideas. The hard thing is finding new WAYS of saying the same things. I don't have much experience with writing but that's the way songs happen...

Thanks. I like what you said and agree it is hard to find a new way of saying something. Good luck with your song writing.
