So, it seems the other thread is not where you'll be talking!
Here's my question: During the writing process, do you have any sort of rituals that you have to do before you can properly get those creative juices flowing?
How do you over come writers block?
When I have a song written going into the studio I'm usually pretty comfortable with performing a song once I've had a chance to sit with it. I prefer to do a "scratch" track the night before I really track it so I can properly emote and deliver the song the way it needs to be delivered.
