I think my worst problem as a producer is that i have trouble finding some creativity. It's always been a problem for me, even before i started producing dubstep, writing guitar parts and stuff was always a problem.
So i'm just wondering, what helps you guys find creativity in a song and how you write the songs structure/melody/drop and whatever. Like sometimes i'll come up with a really good drop but then can't write the rest of the song and vice versa.
Thanks for any help,

Inspiration is an application developed to stimulate the creativity of music composers.
Influenced by Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies, and techniques described in several books about songwriting, Inspiration allows its users to get random, more or less abstract advice that can provide ways to handle the blank page syndrome, new "cooking recipes" to create music in general, ideas to develop or finish your last song, write a lot of music in a short time, take different musical paths...
Considering Inspiration as another software adaptation of Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies is wrong:
Moreover, a special editor is included, allowing users to create their own sets, with an efficient and ergonomic interface. With this functionality, you can :
- Indeed, those advice items are gathered together like the Oblique Strategies, but also other thematic sets like the Horizontal Strategies from -musicalentropy for example, the Frustrated Songwriter's Strategies, the Advancing Guitarist strategies, and others.
- The advice items are classified and can be filtered with numerous tags, allowing the users to target specific needs at specific moments. Some examples of these tags : musical instruments like the guitar, the drums or keyboards, various abstraction levels, themes like motivation, harmony, rehearsals, sampling, the development of existing ideas etc.
Anyway, be careful about the various things Inspiration can not do :
- Create your own advice sets, corresponding to your needs, your personality, and the way you work.
- Share your own advice sets with all the users of Inspiration.
- Fill a list of composition ideas, new tracks or concepts you would like to work on in the future.
- Have a work plan for your preferred musical instrument, full of random exercises to do or existing songs to include to your musical repertoire.
- Optimize your 20-songs game sessions, as described in the book "The Frustrated Songwriter's Handbook" by Nicholas Dobson and Karl Coryat.
- Write some music for you.
- Play any musical instrument for you.
- Take all the credits of the music you have created thanks to its advice.
- Fill a lack of technical competences and/or a lack of musical knowledge.
- Replace experimented musician's advice.
- Replace experimented musicians.
- Force you read how to use Inspiration before having any opinion on its concept.
- Bring the beers for the rehearsals.
Having said all that, I feel like there are dance music musicians who aren't very expressive in their work and their tunes work best on the dance floor, while others write dance tunes I can easily get into on my headphones at home.
I'm not sure how to solve the problem for you, but I think it starts with not trying to wedge your creativity into an extreme niche immediately.

I typed a few paragraphs then thought fuck it the above is true.
Don't over think anything. Just do stuff and see what comes creativity can not be forced only formulas can be forced.
Do something else until your ready to create

To that inspiration plugin, that looks pretty cool, I still can't believe I've not read any of Brian Eno's stuff I really need to get on that!
