WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL DAY LIKE AS A SONGWRITER?
As a songwriter there really are no "typical" days for me. Although yes there is certain scheduled time for writes 10:30/11:00am-3pm, every write is very different.  This is what inspires me and excites me about the writing process. It is never boring.  It is never status quo.  We are getting a chance to create music everyday from scratch.  What a gift!  

ANY ADVICE YOU HAVE FOR SETTING REALISTIC GOALS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK?
Writing is a very personal thing.  There is no "one" way to skin the cat.  For any aspiring writer, I think practicing the craft is the best time spent.  Everyday, try and write something down on paper. Let the outside world in-art and inspiration are everywhere. Pay attention! Watching movies, reading books, listening to conversations, podcasts and sermons, all can help. But mostly, listen to your own heart.  I try and write down what I know. I listen and study the iconic writers and artists that came before me. I respect the craft and realize there is a whole lot more going on than just writing a song.  We are telling the story. Don't be afraid to tell yours.
