First, back by popular demand… ways to help you through Writers Block:
.
1. Figure out when you’re most productive (start an activity diary to find that out), then schedule your sessions during those times without phone, computer, or other distracters.
.
2. Set realistic, immediate goals during each writing session.
.
3. Though it seems obvious, plan ahead to avoid people, places, or things that you KNOW take you off-point (and vice versa, put yourself around environments proven to inspire you).
.
4. Recognize that staying focused is not easy; but important accomplishments rarely are. Stick with it, the sacrifice is worth it!
.
5. Always document your #copyrights by professionally registering your #songs! With SongRegistration.com, it’s cheap, quick, and super-easy (and used by #composers worldwide).

And now, a few nice tidbits about David and Glenn –
.
David Bowie:
.
1. Beyond cool, he turned down knighthood TWICE (in 2000 and 2003). “It’s not what I spent my life working for.”
.
2. He changed his name (from David Jones) to avoid confusion with the late-60’s Monkees’ star (Davy Jones).
.
3. His hit “Fame” was co-written with John Lennon (who sang in the background).
.
.
Glenn Frey:
.
1. He not only wrote the theme for the hit show Miami Vice, he also played a Vietnam vet/pilot flying a DEA mission in one episode.
.
2. He and Don Henley first started playing together as the backup band for Linda Ronstadt.
.
3. In the first week he and Don began writing as a team, they penned Desperado and Tequila Sunrise. Not a bad start. Glenn also wrote those ever-haunting Hotel California lyrics (one of the most-played, and royalty-earning, songs on the planet).
