Music runs in my blood. It gives me a lot of purpose and is the most profound way I can express myself!
I would love to make enough money writing music to pursue it full-time. I dream of hearing some of my songs performed by famous artists! I also love performing but not sure yet if I'm good enough (especially at singing) to make a living at it. I love entertaining people with my music.

Anything from my own feelings to bits of everyday conversation to melodies that pop in my head to hearing a theme or chord progression or lyric in others' music that gives life to a new or revamped idea.
still working on that
Incredible. A fulfilling feeling like no other
For me personally, very hard to find time to develop craft / art / music with the rest of life happening. Hard to get attention. I think platforms like Drooble and more events like battle of the bands and songwriting contests would be helpful.
I'm very new, but so far, great!! It's great to be able to network with other artists, to hear their stuff and have people hear my stuff!
Very little time to devote to music and very little money to promote myself in ads, song contests, etc.
I would like to be much more active but at present, time does not allow. I go see local artists when I can though.
Persistence, thick skin (even great music isn't appreciated by everyone), always watching for ruts in your own songwriting, being aware of current platforms for sharing, selling, streaming
