Songwriting Tip #4 // Keep The Energy Levels High

Have you ever been in a co-writing session which starts brilliantly as someone brings a great idea only for you to continue playing that idea for the next two hours without really moving forward? 
The moment that energy levels in the room begin to dip - stop, shelve your idea - however good it may be - and branch out in a different direction. Being aware of the dynamics in the room can be key to getting more done in less time  - keep it moving and keep the energy levels high.
