Thanks so much for this! I’m an international high school teacher with a week to go before summer break starts, and I’m planning to spend my summer writing and recording an album of originals. This information is really going to come in handy!! Your teaching style is amazing, Andrea! So much practical, useful theory in such a concise format. I’m blown away!

One I would like to offer: write from a different perspective. Approach the lyrics as if you're someone other than yourself. Or write on a different instrument from your primary one. There are endless variations on this idea.
