THE WAITING, GETTING IN WHERE YOU FIT IN
As a songwriter, you have to find ways to get your music into the right ears. The process can seem pretty intimidating because so many others are trying to do the same. You submit and you wait…and you wait. It can feel stressful but it really doesn’t have to be. Yes, a lot of people might have the same exact goals as you do (they want to get their music to some major artist, etc.) but I, myself, have come to understand that every road and every situation isn’t for everyone.
I have learned that you have to be a little more innovative with ideas when it comes to your dreams. You can create different avenues for yourself and in time, more and more things will happen. Maybe focus on smaller goals that can become part of the process to you getting to the finale. I want to do a lot with my own music and I have started to create both small and large goals so that something positive is bound to come of my hard work. Sitting around, waiting only brings discouragement but if you’re constantly working, and you’re constantly searching for ways and places to fit in your music, you’re being consistent and you’re getting closer.
It’s fine to submit and reach out to people, but I have learned that those methods should not be your only options. You can create your own avenues and be your own platform if that’s what it takes.
