Co-writer Characteristic #1 of 10: Humility

Even the trash cans are cool in London's Heathrow Airport!This is the first in a series of ten posts about the characteristics of a good co-writer. Though things like humility, discipline and joyfulness may seem to have little to do with creating music, they has everything to do with working well with others. The first characteristic of a successful co-writer is humility.

A practiced songwriter is a humble songwriter.

The reality is that 95% of a professional writer's work usually has the lifetime of a helium balloon. It may stay afloat for a few days, but it gradually loses its air. Most of the time we don't get much recognition for the hard work we do. That's humbling.

Keep writing,
