EXPLORING YOUR SONG ROUTES

Dale Boyle


Writing Holiday songs!

I resisted writing seasonal/holiday songs (particularly Christmas songs) for some time. I’m not sure why this is, but I finally caved and wrote a song called “Come Christmas Time.” It was a particular challenge to avoid typical clichés and to come up with lyrics that felt somewhat unique. Even if this remains the only seasonal/holiday song I ever write, I am glad that I made the effort to do so. So, even if only for a songwriting exercise, try to write a holiday song!

Happy holidays and happy writing!

Dale
