Some of you guys might have read some of my other articles online. I just wrote an article about songwriting. I think it will really make some people think. So many people look for songwriting advice. If you ask for advice, you are losing the heart and originality that you put into it to make it art. Feel free to check out the article and let me know what you think.

While you do present a relatively coherent argument, I have to disagree completely with your claim, both as it applies to the lyrical and musical aspect of songwriting. If anything, this might generally apply to those who seek to write as a hobby, but in terms those who write professionally/aspire to do so, this is completely useless information. The ratio of those who do what you are saying and become successful as opposed to those who internalize the craft of songwriting, and then personalize it is significantly in favour of the latter.
For advice on lyric writing, I highly recommend checking out this book(http://www.amazon.com/Art-Writing-Great-Lyrics/dp/1581150938)

I guess I see ur point. A good example would be pop singers. Idk I might be a little biased cuz I listen to a lot of artists who have very original writing styles and are very emotional. Not emotional like" im gonna go cry in a corner" but like straight from the heart with no bs. So I was just thinking that if people dig into what u write, u lose that flame and emotion that YOU put in there. Its debatable but yes u brought up a good point.

Please don't get me wrong as I know you didn't join UG to advertise your website, but it still is against the rules to 'advertise' in an off-topic post, which this is since it's in the wrong forum and a topic you specifically made, not something you posted and became a part of.

If you want to repost this in the Songwriting and Lyrics Techniques sub-forum, I think it will be better. But instead of linking us to your website, try and copy and paste the article into the UG reply section and post it as that. I think it will be safer and more in-line with the rules of UG.
