Performing vs. Writing

Over the last 8 weeks I've been taking a performance class. Over this period, I've been focusing on getting 3 songs just right. This means practicing them at home and on stage.

What I found is that my songwriting has really slowed down during this period. I've developed a few melodies and started some lyrics, but haven't completed anything.

My musical energy is now focused on performing, not songwriting. Hopefully after the performance, I can get back into the songwriting groove. Of course with the whitewater season coming soon, the struggle for my free time will begin.

As a fellow songwriter I always find I have periods where I can write loads of songs at once and then have a blank period. I always date my songs in my songwriting book and it is clear to see that this is always the case with me. Congrats on your first comment and keep writing!
