Message In A Bottle

At a recent retreat for indie artists and songwriters, I asked Hillsong writer, Mia Fieldes to teach on lyric writing. Her class entitled, Message In a Bottle, was quite inspiring and, I believe, helpful to the artists and writers attending.  She began her talk with this:

If a bottle washes up on the shore and you find an interesting message inside, it’s something quite special.   But if a bottle washes up without a message, it’s just trash.

Mia’s point of course, was that the music is your delivery vehicle for something really special, so don’t waste it.

You can find many helpful tools in this blog for lyric writing.  Check out blogs on Alliteration, ApostrophePersonification, Repetition, Anaphora and more, at the links provided or under the Lyric Writing category.
