I wrote this to a musician friend who could play and sing, but didn't think they could write their own music and then I decided to share it here as well:
I think writing music requires a willingness to make mistakes and not
only accept them, but explore them for possibilities. Most of the
process of making good new music is not making good music but doing
things that don't work. If you're doing something that always works,
you're mostly doing things you know will work and therefore not really
going unexpected and original places. But the willingness to spend a lot of time
making what sounds like mistakes or being wrong is something which is
scared out of most of us unfortunately. I think often it's a process of
hunting for a sound that brings out some ideas or emotions and then
exploring it from there.
