    Quite a variety. The popular music of the 60s and 70s was a big influence, but I've strayed down some odd paths along the way.

  1. Hi Amy, I'm in the same boat you are. I too only write the words. I'm not sure there's a "best" way. In my experience it's whatever works. I've had some luck on http://www.kompoz.com/music/home But since then they've changed the site and made it harder to put up a catalog of lyrics for music writers to pick from. You can, however, seek out projects in need of lyrics and offer yours. Haunt SoundCloud and look for people whose music fits your style and approach them. Look for songwriting organizations and workshops near you. There are a bunch out there. Try these links: http://www.taxi.com/members/links-associations.html http://www.songlink.com/songlink-industry-organizations-a.html And last but not least... I found my main writing partner through an ad in a local penny saver publication. We've been working together for over 7 years now. The thing to remember is that it's not easy. First of all you have to keep working on your writing in order to create lyrics that will attract a music writer's attention. And then you have to find ways to connect with music writers; follow up on every idea you can think of. If there's a local band you like... hit them up. If you see a woman busking on the street... hit her up. Just keep trying. And don't expect one partnership to last forever. Most of the people I've worked with (almost 40 now) only lasted for a song or two. There've only been three people in over 40 years that I've written 10 or more songs with. Hope this helps.
