Software can't solve it all

Just a musing on the fact that I used to look for software to help me record and organize lyrics.

But that software always just gets in the way. Paper is so much better, especially because it's messier and all over the place.

I think that, at least for me, some things will always be better in "analog."

What say you, slutz?

I use a software called Master Writer for my songwriting and I really like it. I find having my lyrics printed on screen is easier to really look at them and focus on them. Plus it has a built in rhyming dictionary, thesaurus and a drum machine.

The rhyming dictionary has saved my ass a few times. You may not find the perfect rhyme but seeing a certain word can trigger a whole new line that you would have never thought of.

Works for me, but everyone has their methods.

I get rappers in all the time that write their lyrics on their PDAs

Paper, and anything I can find to write with.

There's just more romance in the intellectual aspect of looking at handwritting on paper. Also, some of the best lyrics have come from mis-reading someones handwritting. lol!

keep SOMEthing scared! heh
