Thing is, I have absolutely no idea where to start when writing the words for a song. Whether I should make notes, or what I should look for for inspiration.
I'm looking for a bit of help on this, obviously not for you to write it for me, or give me lines. Just tips, because I know there are some really talented writers here.
Would be much appreciated (:

Like I get a line or two and I kind of go off that. Or you could write about a past event--something you'll never forget.
You could try that for inspiration. I'm probably not much help, but I don't know--words come to me naturally.
Sometimes, when I have writer's block, I sit there with a pen and paper and write down what I want to work with. Any random phrases or interesting lines floating in my head.
But most importantly--write a song about something you can relate too.

Don't try and write about something you don't know about. Like, my this girl in my class wrote a song about this guy not being The One, blahblahblah. It was incredibly good, amazingly good in fact, she's a very talented singer and has eithe done Grade 5 piano and doing theory or something, or is doing Grade 5.
But it din't sound right. From what I know, she's had one boyfriend in the past 2 years, for like, 2 weeks. Let me remind you, she's twelve. There's no One person happening right now. :/
It's a song I think Rihanna would have sung brilliantly. <3
Butyeah. It really didn't go well. So only
I dunno if it's just me, but I can tell when what the person is singing about - however well and brilliantly - is nothing to what they've ever felt.
write a song about something you can relate to.
