Do you force yourself to sit down and write or do you just be creative when it hits you?
Man, good question...back when songwriting was super recreational for me I just wrote when I needed to-when I needed that outlet. I still do that now, but these days it's a little bit of both. Now I work harder to retain all the little lyric and melody ideas. And I journal almost daily, which helps clear out the cluttered thoughts so that hopefully, when I do have time to sit down and write, only the specific, essential details remain.
