There are few creative acts more mysterious and magical than writing a song. But what if the goal wasn’t so mysterious and was actually achievable for anyone who wants to experience more creativity in their life? Why one song? Because the difference between one song and many songs isn’t a charming semantic trick – it’s an important distinction that can simplify a notoriously confusing art form. The idea of becoming a songwriter can seem daunting, but approached as a focused, self-contained event, the mystery and fear subsides, and songwriting becomes an exciting pursuit. And then there is the energising, nourishing creativity that can open up. ‘How To Write One Song’ brings readers into the intimate process of writing one song – lyrics, music, and putting it all together – and accesses the deep sense of wonder that remains at the heart of this curious, yet incredibly fulfilling, artistic act.
