Do you ever feel like your creativity is stuck in a rut? Like you’re spinning your wheels and can’t seem to come up with anything new or exciting? If so, it might be time to take a page from the oral hygiene handbook and start thinking of songwriting practice like flossing.
Just like flossing helps to remove all that pesky plaque and bacteria that your toothbrush just can’t reach, songwriting practice helps to remove all the creative gunk that can build up in your brain. Imagine it like a mental floss – it’s an essential part of keeping your creative muscles sharp and healthy.
But let’s be real, it’s easy to skip a day (or a week) of flossing. And just like skipping flossing can lead to bad habits, skipping songwriting practice can lead to creative ruts. Trust us, you don’t want to end up with a case of gum disease (okay, I’ll stop with the dental analogies). So, if you want to avoid a creative case of gum disease (we promise, no more dental analogies), make daily practice a habit.
And, perhaps most importantly, songwriting practice is like flossing because it helps to keep you focused and motivated. Just like flossing is a small but important part of your daily routine, songwriting practice can be a daily reminder of your goals and aspirations as a songwriter.
But hey, don’t just take our word for it. Pick up that guitar or pen and give daily practice a try. You’ll be flossing your way to better songwriting in no time. Just try not to get any dental floss mixed up with your guitar strings, that could get messy. Happy songwriting!
