Jigsaw Songwriting

Tips & Resources by Brent Baxter on June 21, 2017

If you’ve ever put (or attempted to put) together a jigsaw puzzle, you know how you set the box right in front of you so you can keep looking at the finished picture?

That’s how it should be with your songwriting career.

It’s hugely helpful to keep your “big picture”- your goal- in front of you as you sift through the massive stack of puzzle pieces. The pieces are your everyday choices- what you decide to do (and not do) and when you decide to do it.

Keeping your finished picture in mind helps you see how certain pieces might fight together and where they go on the board. Keeping the finished picture in front of you also helps you stay motivated. You can look at it knowing it’ll be beautiful when it’s complete.

Keep writing.

By the way, I'm so thankful that you've decided to drop by Frettie, that I want to give you a FREE GIFT! It's my ebook called, "Think Like A Pro Songwriter," and you can get it at In addition to some great insight just from that book, you'll also receive regular songwriting tips, creative kickstarters and advice right to your inbox.
