Don't force yourself to write. Some people can write a novel in a few months, whereas for others it can take over a year. I'm lucky to be one of the former - but, even so, if I'm not in the mood to write, I won't. I'll go off, do something else and come back to it when I'm ready.Cecelia Ahern

And the thing about me is, I have a lot of mellow songs, because they're the easiest for me to write.

Those are the songs that came out the most naturally.Priscilla Ahn

It absolutely helped - to write the father in both 'Juicy' and 'Beasts,' I had to see the whole story from his point of view. All of a sudden I understood more of what my own father must be going through - the fear, the frustration, the anger... the hope that he'll leave a legacy.Lucy Alibar

I try to write relevant songs about life and whatever I'm going through and whatever people are going through.Gary Allan

I try never to focus on the radio, just find great songs, find emotion and just write the best songs you can. I think when you get fixated on trying to do something too accurate, it becomes more washed out and less what you intended it to be. So I think each time the challenge for me is to try and reinvent a little bit.Gary Allan
