    I've been in a music writing rut lately with my mind overclocked from work. It doesnt help I suck at writing music with other people too, or have severe anxiety when it comes to writing music with others after bad past band experiences. I try to make Terasophe an all genre-but mostly metal- outlet, but everything is coming out so much alike sounding that it upsets me.

    I dont want to give up writing music because thats what im most passionate about. I'm afraid Id end up doing something regretful if I let go of my passion.

    That and this reply was an effort on my part. I had to think long and thoroughly about it.

    Slammed works hard for those high-tips. He just got back from a 6 hour shift on his favorite stripper pole

    The only pole you can strip is out of your own ass.

    Write a song about how much your specific day-job is stressing you out
    2
    Writing a song doesn't have to be a collaborative effort
    Just explain to your band mates that you want to write a couple of songs all by yourself
    And then just do that
    Get a couple of songs written all by yourself
    And then go back to writting with the band
    3
    If you're doing "mostly metal" and everything is coming out "so much alike"
    You need to just sit down and decide
    I'm gonna make a totally non-metal song
    ( This part you might need your band members for)
    4
    If WRITING music is "what you're most passionate about" then you need to have your music-writer- collaborator be some one else who feels the same way
    Even if the new person helping you WRITE songs is someone who can't sing or play an instrument to save their lives
    5
    Don't let go of your passion
    Keep writing music, even if continuing to write music means letting go of your band
