RM has shared his methodology of overcoming writer's block while penning down lyrics, and honestly, it might just be the antidote all writers out there are looking for.
Opening about his songwriting experiences and how he writes lyrics besides handling writer’s block in an interview with HYBE Insight, HYBE’s cultural museum, BTS' RM said cited his mixtape track, 'Seoul', a song revolving around the love-hate relationship he shares with the eponymous city, as the best example of how he overcomes creative roadblocks, citing how he initially envisaged his song as a story, after which he established the setting, then cast himself as the principal character in the song's story, following which he sought a feasible conflict withing the boundaries of said story to explore.
Once he managed to outline the aforementioned points, RM delved into his personal experiences, his string feelings after first moving to the city of Seoul as a teenager, recalling how he'd both fawn over and have a distaste for diverse aspects of the metropolitan. Once he thought of all this, the rest of the story fell into place ergo, RM then found it easy to wrote the lyrics for the entire song. RM also highlighted how he collects bits and pieces of random ideas that spring to him, so that they may come in handy someday while penning lyrics. So, the next time you or a fellow writer you know is suffering a block, try using these simple tools laid down by BTS leader RM.
