Why, then, do some songwriters seem to have an over abundance of fans buying their music while others struggle to sell the first song? Why do recording artists record every song writer X writes, but writer Y can’t get arrested?
The answer is…there is not a huge difference in skills between writers who get either 95% of the way or 100%, but there is a little. And, that extra 5% makes a BIG difference.
I often ask myself the same question and have the belief that it’s the little extra things that you do that make all the difference. This article outlines the activities that make up the extra 5%.
It really is the difference between a good and a great songwriter.
