Songwriting Tip #2 // EMOTION IS FOUND AT THE EDGE

What do you do if you are stuck in a rut, in a comfortable place? The answer is to go to an uncomfortable place , go the edge of all that is familiar.
When we go to the edge and come to the end of ourselves - maybe by playing an instrument we don't usually play or writing without an instrument - that is when some of the most interesting things can happen. The comfort zone is replaced with emotion.
Emotion is found at the edge.
