    #48 - The Ultimate Dilemma for the Song’s Main Character – Waypoint #3: The Crisis

    #48 - The Ultimate Dilemma for the Song’s Main Character – Waypoint #3: The Crisis

    In today’s episode, we’re gonna explore what it looks when we write about facing a crisis.
    We’ve all been in a dilemma in our life, right?
    It’s when no matter what we choose, there’s always something to lose, but also something to gain.
    But it’s normal if we fear the loss more than having the potential to gain something.
    Being in a dilemma, there’s just so much uncertainty attached it.
    And we might fear making a choice at all.
    So when we write lyrics about a dilemma, we can actually provide guidance to our audience … whenever they face a similar crisis.
    And in this episode, you will find out how you can write lyrics about a person’s dilemma.
    What it takes to truly create a hard choice for your song’s main character and I’ll also show you all the options of where you can place that crossroad moment in your lyrics’ narrative.
    And as a lyric example, we’ll look at Gloria Gaynor’s song: “I Will Survive” because there’s so much to take away from the way those lyrics were written.
    Sound good?
    Awesome, then let’s get started!

    #47 - How to combine every part of the lyrics so that it contributes to one central meaning?

    Today, I wanna answer a question that I got recently asked in my Facebook Group.

    It’s from Hudson.

    And he asked:

    How can I combine every part of the song so that it contributes to one central meaning of the lyrics?

    That’s an awesome question, and let’s talk about it right now.

    #46 - Writing A Turning Point Moment in Lyrics – Waypoint #2: The Turning Point Progressive Complication

    #46 - Writing A Turning Point Moment in Lyrics – Waypoint #2: The Turning Point Progressive Complication

    If you’re like me, you have something valuable to share.

    Something that matters.

    And that we know that can help someone who will listen to our song. 

    And to get our message across in a way that bypasses a listener's critical mind, we have to wrap what we have to say into an experience.

    And we create that experience through the journey we send our song’s main character on.

    So that’s why we talk about the waypoints of that journey.

    So that we can create that experience that leads someone from their mess to a better place.

    And today, we will talk about the second waypoint on that journey.

    Today, we’ll make it even worse for our song’s main character.

    Because that’s life, right?

    It has to get worse first before it can get better.

    So let’s get right to it.

    #45 - How I Discovered the Power of Lyrics

    #45 - How I Discovered the Power of Lyrics

    Today, I wanna take the chance and introduce myself to you. Especially, I wanna tell you the story about the time in my life when I was completely lost, on my own, literally at the end of the world, and how one song gave me the strength to carry on… and what all of that taught me about what makes lyrics powerful.

    So it’s all about my journey, so to say, and why I’m so passionate about the power of lyrics. Because this is the most incredible thing ever. 

    So here’s how everything started.

    #44 - Throwing the Song's Character's Life Out Of Balance – Waypoint #1: The Inciting Incident

    #44 - Throwing the Song's Character's Life Out Of Balance – Waypoint #1: The Inciting Incident

    You know, I always consider what happens in a powerful lyric like a journey.
     
    It’s basically about watching a character move from one point in their life to another.
     
    They are in a certain external or internal situation, and they wanna get from where they are to a better place.
     
    So there’s always this little journey that the song’s main character goes on.
     
    But before anyone moves in life and takes action, most of the time, though, something must happen beforehand.
     
    And that’s what today’s episode is all about.
     
    It’s about that incident that makes them see that they gotta pursue what they want so that they can get rid of an imbalance.
     
    It’s like they feel that something is off, and they’re pulled towards something better — externally or internally.
     
    So, if you want to find out how to write lyrics with a meaningful message, then this episode is the first part of five to doing just that.
     
    Here's what we'll cover:
    [00:01:37] 5 Commandments[00:03:54] Definition of the Inciting Incident[00:08:31] Creating Drive in the Audience[00:09:29] Causal and Coincidental Inciting Incidents[00:11:03] Placement of the Inciting Incident
