A step-by-step guide for beginner songwriters to help brainstorm on - and develop - ideas into lyrical blueprints for songs and poetry.
If you have a passion for songwriting but have absolutely no idea how to begin and just need help getting started, then this guide was written for you. You'll follow seven (7) exercises that walk you through the steps professional songwriters naturally take when writing new song lyrics, using a simple concept that everyone can understand: the seed.

4) Setting Theme/Refrain for Lyric
5) Structuring Your Words
6) Poetry Development

You'll follow a sample song on its journey through each exercise - from initial concept to final layout - to eventually structure your song lyric using the blueprint of a popular song in your favorite music genre, duplicating each step of the process for your project.
The Seed Method is easy to follow and can be finished within a week especially if you take advantage of the additional web tools and free resources linked to throughout the eBook.
