EXERCISE 1: TITLE REWRITE
Think of an interesting title of a hit song that you like. Reimagine what the song could be about and write it completely differently, using only the title in your new version.
EXERCISE 2: THE OTHER SIDE
Go back to a time in your life when you had a deeply anguished emotional conflict. Now write about that situation…from the point of view of the other person.
EXERCISE 3: CHANGE INSTRUMENTS
Are you always writing to a certain instrument? Change it up. Even if it’s going from a guitar to a ukulele, a slight change to your sound can spark a creative streak.
