My Songwriting Process

A few weeks ago I posted the lyrics to song that I wrote whilst on retreat.

You can read them here.

I thought you might be interested in a picture of my songwriting process.

I know it's a bit hard to read and as I used some scrap paper that was convenient the underside has shown through - but you can see the process.

I started with the phrase 'There are burning bushes everywhere' which I wrote in the middle of the paper. I then brainstormed using word association on various words within that phrase. The words and ideas that came out of that brainstorming became the basis for the message and the lyrics of the song.

Pretty cool!
