    Have you ever tried writing a song with a particular artist in mind? It's a great way to exercise thinking about songwriting in a way that you might not otherwise. I've heard professional songwriters talk about the 100 song rule. That is, after you write your 100th song (this is an arbitrary number I'm sure) you are just beginning to get a handle on the craft. Of course quantity isn't the goal as much as quality but every song can't be a winner. So just keep writing. I mention writing with other artists in mind b/c it frees you up to consider new styles, song topics, keys, etc. Anyone else given this a try?

    Yes, but I always feel like I need a shower afterwards.

    It did help my craft though because I learned alot about different chord types, and voice leading.
