Before you begin you should read this short article  “3 Things a Songwriter Should Have in His Pocket


Set a timer for 20 seconds and write down the first things that pop into your head.

     For example~

~Food ~ Colors~ Comedy~ Friends~Dancing~Kareokkee~ Mad Libs~ I Spy~ Pictionary~ “That’s What She Said”~ To the Moon and Back~ Bruno Mars~ Dance Dance Revolution~ The Greatest Showman~ Washing Dishes~ Apples to Apples~

  • Stop Overthinking and Have Fun ~  Invite some friends over and play a game that makes you laugh and gets you thinking!  Such as Apples to Apples, Curses, Mad Libs, or Pictionary.  In addition to being highly entertained this technique encourages you to use your imagination.  This triggers the creative part of your brain to start working, thus resulting in productivity.




  • Involve Food ~ They call it comfort food for a reason.  Pick your favorite food /snacks/ drinks and make yourself a picnic with multiple food choices while brainstorming.  It seems as though we tend to develop out most creative ideas when we take the focus off writing and get our taste buds involved.




  • Explore Nature ~ Aside from all the fun and laughter, escaping for some quiet time” can restart your thinking process.




Creating balance with a little quiet after the chaos will help you more than you know. Go for a walk. Where is your favorite thinking spot?

          My favorite place is the lake or the beach.



Good luck!  Have fun brainstorming!
