how to get over the writer's block

Recommended Posts

Hi colleagues, 

Not sure if anyone else is having writer's block from time to time, but I do and also I have not found an ideal solution yet. I tried everything, sleeping over it and coming back the next day, listening to a lot of music etc. but sometimes I just find it hard to get over it. 

So, I did a lot of research, read the forum discussions around this issue and asked other fellow composers, but my issue is still here.  

So, a while ago I found this AI company called AIVA or smth (here is their website www.aiva.ai) and also some blog posts & articles that i cannot find at the moment, but they try to claim that they are trying to use AI to help composers to get over this. I wanted to use the platform just to try to see if it works, but seems like it is still not launched, but soon will be. 

What do you think about using AI or such a platform to overcome this issue? Would you actually use it? Do you think it can be a solution? I am still thinking.....

Just open up your music notation software (or take a blank staff page and a pencil if you're ol'skool) and start writing. Just start writing. Don't stop composing, don't think you have "a block." No, maybe the ideas you immediately put to paper are trash (or maybe not,) but give it a few minutes! Keep working, and work hard. Even if you don't produce super masterpieces, the actual work doesn't go wasted as you may run into stuff you DO like that you wouldn't have written if you just sat around and asked these questions on internet forums, right?


Composing is 90% sweat and 10% creativity. Work and work hard!
