  1. We all know this I'm sure, and we've all had our struggles with it as well, but I really want to discuss how it comes upon us and ways we've personally got over it. I know this is my first post on here in a while, that's because I've had a good year and a half of writer's block. Don't get me wrong, I've been writing lyrics, but nothing real, nothing I'd want to show you folks on here. For me it started after a big change in my life, which you figure would offer new ideas for lyrics, but no. When I moved away from my beloved home town in central Florida. I went to a new school, an arts performance school, full of people who had accomplished big things in music at their young age, somewhat undermining me. I mean they were beautiful singers and guitarists and when it came my turn to display my skills, I choked every time. Just embarrassing. So this gradual depletion of my confidence led me to stop writing, even when I wanted to, I simply couldn't find the right ideas. I'm slowly getting over it. I still haven't written anything legitimate, but I think I'm getting there. So share your experiences with any sort of lull in your writing abilities and how you got around it, as for rapport.
  2. I was aked by someone to "brach off and try poetry or visual arts or something", so here goes nothing... The Turning 2011 © Cody Morgan There's a man that I call God A man of graciousness at that Picks us up when we are falling But now mankind is getting fat He just doesn't have the strength Or the will to carry on Unless mankind loses their weight Our purpose will be dead and gone I'm not saying to let us die I'm telling you to make a stand To exercise mankind's power Before this life turns into sand Oh, and together we must stand A billion stars shining like the sun And the time for this is now Yes, the Turning has begun I wish I could've had this for December's lyric contest.
  3. nevermind...
  4. I was really hoping to enter my other song , "Don't Make Me Go", but istead I had to make one up on the spot. I now know not to post my song before entering it in the contest. I am disappointed by my score this month but I have a good one for next month's lyric contest. Look out Dottie!
  5. I love it when people make up there own genre of music for their band. Plus I live in Florida so sub-tropical blues? That's perfect. I think I'll buy it right now.
  6. Hi Gavboe, This would seem to work out well for me because I love writing lyrics, but when it comes to intstrumentals I get writer's block. Also, I have been taking singing lessons every thursday for the past year. I can sing rock, country, blues, you name it. I'll e-mail you a copy of a lyric I intended to put in this month's contest, I think you'll like it. Reply to this message or the e-mail (or both!) if you're still interested. Looking forward to this, Cody PS: Beck is one of my favourites
  7. This subject already seems pretty well done in Carrie Underwood's 'Before He Cheats'... Not trying to discourage you, but if you don't already have a good idea for it on your own, neither will anyone else. PS: Don't stop writing.
  8. Friend: Well, Steve, you been seeing anyone lately? Steve: Actually, yeah. This girl at the hospital, she's amazing. She will do absolutely ANYTHING, no strings attached. Although I do feel kind of bad because she's was a patient of mine. Friend: Oh yeah, well how does she feel about it? Steve: Oh, I don't know, but if she ever woke up she'd be pissed!
