Songwriting Tip #7 // REDEFINE SUCCESS

What does success look like for a songwriter? Thomas Merton the Anglo-Catholic writer and mystic said this about embracing the process itself rather than results,

‘Do not depend on the hope of results… As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself.’

The process can be an amazing journey of discovery of our deepest thoughts and beliefs about God and ourselves if we let it - and a great definition of success.
