I’m sorry if this is the wrong sub but I’m trying to find a way to get back into writing lyrics.
I’ve been writing lyrics since high school, and started writing lyric in my last 2 years of high school. I used to write consistently, almost everyday on paper. I was really depressed and bullied a lot and I put my feelings and creations onto paper.
After high school, I decided to give myself a break of 3 months.
It’s now been almost a year and a half since I actually sat down and wrote lyrics. I’m no longer depressed and I’m out of my bad mental state but I’m unsure if that’s a reason why I don’t write lyrics anymore.
I have a lot of work (lyrics) for me to edit and just make em better. I haven’t stopped writing lyrics for 1 year, it’s just that I started writing on Iphone Notes but i seem to write rubbish instead of actually sitting down and thinking of how to write a good song.
I’m unsure, I think I became lazy. I want to go back to writing lyrics (I still know how to do it) but it’s more of me being reluctant doing it despite me wanting to do so.
I can’t seem to pick myself up to do what I want to do
What should I do ? How do I get back to writing lyrics ?
