Inspiration can come from the smallest things like eating a great sandwich or waking up to a beautiful day. Sometimes I can write a verse or a chorus from these simple motivations, but lately I have been struggling something awful. The drive to write a song has been absent for the past couple weeks and I have no reason for it. Some might say this is normal, but there is a yearning to get something down on paper, anything at all. The music is never a problem for me, but the lyrics, the emotions, seem to flow like molasses. Taking time off is a good thing though because it allows for new ideas to form and develop. It will come in time.
