Stolpe is to lyric writing as Julia Child is to cooking verbige. can whip up something good by simply following the right instructions. It is hard to fault Stolpe’s method, in part because her words are as easily savored on the page as in a tune. Yet her premise is limited; one writes, she argues, ultimately to expel some residue of pain or joy. This may be true for most modern writers but not necessarily for architects of a more impersonal eloquence (Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart) or those who paint elusive abstractions (Dylan).

This is the perfect book for a beginning song writer who has absolutely no experience or success writing songs! I want to start a band (in the long run) and this book has really helped focus my song writing. Now I am listing to pop songs on the radio and find myself examining their basic rhyming, toggling and lyric structures-- that's a far cry from one month ago. This helped me break down song writing into easy, digestible parts so I can slowly grasp the big picture! Thanks!

Thank you for helping me to get over 'writer's block'. But must admit, I haven't finished he book yet, I am too busy writing! I will get back to it soon. I needed to do a lot more writing in order to have enough material to improve on my lyrical ideas. The section on rhyming seemed to depend on this.
So while I have been able to write more, I haven't gotten any great lyrics yet out of it yet.

Im a music college student and this book is helping me write songs and teaching me patterns and helping me develop lyric writing skills I've never heard of! The terms ms. Stolpe uses are easy to understand and this course is perfect for both beginning and intermediate songwriting students! I bought this book just for extra credit and its worth it definitely!

I like this book a lot. Andrea Stolpe takes Pat Pattison's technique of "object writing" (from Writing Better Lyrics, tweaks it a little bit to call it "destination writing", which is object writing about a person, place, or time, and comes up with a set of steps that you can use to practice your writing.

I've found the method she suggests to be useful in my own songwriting. Keep in mind, I'm not famous and I haven't sold any songs, but I have read a lot of other songwriting books* and I found this useful.

The basis of the technique is to categorize your destination writing into external details and internal details. Using the maxim of show, don't tell, you generally want to structure your verses with a mix of external details, to ground the narrative, and then use some internal details to give the listener a sense of the inner life of the characters of the song. She use a few commercial songs in her analysis, among them "Breakaway" from Kelly Clarkson and "Why Georgia" from John Mayer.

*Of course, reading books about songwriting is not the same as just sitting at your desk every day and practicing your craft. I'd suggest that you find one or two books that work for you, but spend the majority of your time actually writing, as opposed to reading about writing!

An awesome book that explains the 'nuts & bolts' regarding the craft of songwriting. Glad I bought it.I was r5eally stuggling as to how to put together a story song in a way that is acceptable to the industry. This book helps you with that.
