Ever tried songwriting?

These days, more and more songwriters are bursting into the writing scene, writing short but melodic verses for the singer that would render it. I haven't done much research on it but i guessed that too many aspiring writers stick to writing books and do not ''adventurize'' outside the box.

I think it's even more lucrative than book writing and not to mention, less stressful. You don't have to go through the exhausting process of submitting, querying, synopsis, getting rejected, re-editing and so on. But getting the appropriate channel through record producers that will buy the song, might be where the challenge lies. And just imagine the tons of royalties gotten if the song becomes a hit. But if book writing is your passion, then write on.

Yet i feel song writing is a totally Pantser-ish way of writing yet it must be carved into a plot of Verse 1, Verse 2 with rhythms, a bridge sometimes and the anti climax. It must have tons of emotion and depth in order to appeal to the person being sung to.

I got my inspiration for this article from the hit song GRENADE by Bruno Mars.

The song is really emotional and it...made me cry.

Put so much zest in a song and when the singer sings or performs on stage, you'll see people swooning or even fainting (apart from the singer being cute!). LOL.

So, have you ever tried songwriting?


  1. I can't carry a tune in a bucket!

  2. @ Kittie, LOL. But it wouldn't hurt to try though.


Seriously, i hope you're not glancing through my blog without leaving a comment. It won't take much of your time as i read each and every comment. Thanks as you do so. Peace.
