Songwriting Tip #6 // LEAVE IT ALL ON THE FIELD

There is a saying in sport - leave it all on the field. This means hold nothing back, don't finish the game having played it safe knowing there was a chance for something greater.

It is the same with songwriting - bring everything you have, melodies, phrases, a sense of what God is saying, the good the bad and the ugly! The more we create a context of transparency we are giving ourselves a greater chance of success as we aren't always the best judge of what 'works'. Don't be afraid to leave it all on the field.
