Perks of Writers Block

I started writing a song a long time ago called “Kiss and Mean It.” It might be the best chorus that I’ve ever written but I’ve never been able to find verses. I give it a go, get discouraged, and abandon the song. Occasionally, I return to it for another chance and try to come up with something brilliant. The problem is that I have no idea what this song is about. I recently tried to jumpstart the heartbeat of the song with a pattern interrupt. The banjo was my defibrillator. I thought maybe if I tried the song on a different instrument, it would change my perspective and the song would come together. Magic happened. “Kiss and Mean It” is still without verses but I got a brand new song idea. It happened almost immediately. This was one of those rare moments when a song falls out of thin air. I think it’s going to be called “Frail Bones.” Stay tuned.
