hey there, im new to songwriting and been trying to write whenever i can. firstly i write a couple of lyrics then add the melody then finish off the song. i dont no why. anyway when i try to write indie songs (as in rock music) they end up becoming a soulful rnb song and i just don't understand its not the music i want to write :x can anyone tell me why i do this, anyone :(

I might suggest plan out in your head where you want to go.

It sounds as if your just writing, while this can be useful at times, songs that are too random, or in your case, not particular to the genre you want, it can be a distraction.

Listen to the kind of music you are trying to write for, and know where you want to go.

If you still end up going to RnB stuff... look back and re-write part of it.
:)

yeah thanks for your advice. it's really hard i think i am being to random but i listen to different types of music maybe i should just listen to indie music until i can write a indie song.

thanks for replying :) .

Do you call that a problem? For me it's completely the opposite. I want to write soul or R'nB but everything sounds like rock.

take more time to write your songs. you need to constantly be editing yourself to get the lyrics you want to come out, instead of the lyrics that come out naturally. or, just write what comes naturally and be happy with it.
or, learn about twenty indie covers and try to write just like them.
