Vixen Songwriters: tried Woody Guthrie plan? (35) RE: Songwriters: tried Woody Guthrie plan? 21 Jun 06

Jack Hardy advocates writing one a week on the premise that if you write 52 a year, you're bound to get a good one. I've tried that, but my muse is not that regular...I've had months on end when I've come up with a dozen snippets a week, then months on end with nothing. I use those months to fiddle with the snippets and see if something interesting emerges.
