This Week In Songwriting – An Introduction

In a recent post on my personal blog, I talked about my habit for hoarding information as a means of procrastination to the point where my Evernote account has over 32000 links on various topics of interest (songwriting being one of them) to be read at a later date.

These links have accumulated over time because I have a morning ritual of scanning all of the RSS feeds I subscribe to (using a site called Feedly) and bookmarking anything of value to be read later.

Now, I definitely bookmark more information than I could ever hope to use in my blog writing but at the same time I don’t want to delete information unless I can find a way to use it.

Hence I’m starting a new initiative called This Week In Songwriting.

Put simply, This Week In Songwriting is a series of once-a-week posts full of interesting songwriting links that I find during the week that I want to share with you. I’ll be posting every Friday with the links starting from the previous Saturday.

I want to kick things off with a special first instalment of This Week In Songwriting with links that I’ve found from Tuesday, January 1st until Friday, January 11th.

In the meantime, here is the very first This Week In Songwriting
