The problem however is that many have been discouraged by the response of people to their written songs but this shouldn’t be the case. As long as it sounds good to you, someone has been made happy. You should therefore be on the lookout for inspiration to write songs always.

2.Removing yourself from your everyday experiences and trying out new things.

Sometimes it’s not a mystery to discover the inspiration for writing songs. There are quite a number of things that a budding songwriter should do in order to allow this art of creation work effectively. A very good example is the act of removing yourself from your everyday experiences and trying out new things. At least once a week, go out – on your own. Go shopping, visit the museum and just have fun all by yourself. The main thing about this action is that you will be discovering some aspects of the world on your own, and lyrics about your experience will unconsciously begin to form in your mind.

3.Experiences with love.

A more common inspiration for music today is our experiences with love. Whether you’re still in the relationship or just got out of one, or you’re even afar off hoping to muster courage to get that guy or girl of your dreams, this experience is bound to make you want to write songs. Feelings of love have been known to constitute a large percentage of the songs we hear today as this is one feeling among human beings that can be related to by virtually everybody.

4.Sparking of endorphins through exercising.

Another idea that has been known to be an effective initiator of song writing is the sparking of endorphins through exercising. Many do not like to hear this due to the effort that goes in to exercising alone but this has been found to be quite effective. More importantly and one of the most easy to relate with as well is listening to past music. Listening to other artistes on its own is a great way of getting inspiration for music and this is essentially because of the deep seated respect you probably have for them.

5.Listening to motivational speakers as well as reading inspirational books.

Many have also cited listening to motivational speakers as well as reading inspirational books to be major song writing inspirations. This is due to the fact that it comes as a great way to inspire others through what inspires you. Practicing song writing is also one move that cannot be over emphasized as this is the best way to improve at any skill. You can find inspiration anywhere, tell the story you want to and let the world enjoy some of what you have on the inside through great melody.
