1. Don’t ever try to write anything that sounds like current radio because it was probably written/produced between 2 and 5 years ago. And therefore, the song you’re currently writing won’t be coming out whilst that radio song is current anymore.
2. Don’t kid yourself that an idea is truly new / good if it isn’t. You know deep down whether it is or not.
