Good article, John.

I would add emphasis to the following:

- Know the written and spoken language you wish to work with

- This includes the rhythm of phrasing

- Includes being able to make the same point with several phrases

- Rhyming, while important, is trumped by meaning and rhythm.

Some good tips on recording when inspiration strikes (in your case, the small notebook).

That's a really useful guide, thanks John!

For me, I think the 'observation' part is the most interesting and useful.

One of my favorite things to do as a lyricist is to take common place images or interactions that everyone observes and describe it in a deeper or more interesting way.
