I tend to write for the entire two-year process but usually the things I write in the first six to eight months get thrown out. Not because they weren’t great songs but because they don’t fit my idea of what the new album should be.
“I’ve learned that you can’t predict [love] or plan for it. For someone like me who is obsessed with organization and planning, I love the idea that love is the one exception to that. Love is the one wild card.” // Taylor Swift.
It’s human nature to not say everything that’s on your mind at the time you think it. Because we fear saying something that people will laugh at, people will think is dumb. We’re afraid of being embarrassed.
