    Re-writing is just as important as writing well. Remember that your words aren’t set in stone just because you’ve written them down. Tweak the micro things like syllables, melodies, and words, as well as the macro things like verse length and order until you’ve come as close to perfect as you can. Trying things a different way, even if you don’t end up sticking with it, can give you much-needed perspective on the song you’re working on.
