think of either the town where you were born, or a town you feel somewhat fond of.

List as many street names from that town as you possibly can. From memory if possible. Avoid using google for most songwriting exercises. Googling leads to canoodling, which leads to pinterest, which leads to Etsy, and then you’re screwed.

So, list as many street names from said fond town as you can.

Now, take each street name and try to write a paragraph, using that word just once. In which ever context comes to you.

Re-read paragraphs, underlines favourites.

Allow any further ideas to flow from your heart.

Perhaps a song will start.
