Songwriting Tip #5 // Follow the Favour

Here's the scenario: three people meet to co-write and as they discuss themes, two of the group feel similarly about an idea and train of thought and one person feels differently.
I think at these moments it's important to 'follow the favour' - what is the most compelling feeling in the room? - probably it's with the majority in this case. The sooner we do this the more time we can spend on writing a song even though it may involve your initial idea being shelved this time around. 
All we really want as song writers is Gods favour on something so don't ignore the impulse, go with the gut and follow the favour.
