Thoughts on the Telephone process
Personally, I do well with assignments, structure and limitations, so having a piece to respond to and a deadline were very motivating. I spent some time free writing, just getting out feelings about the piece, and then used that to jump into the songwriting process. I find the hardest part is just getting started, which free writing can help with.
