The first exercise in Jeff Tweedy’s How To Write One Song is called a “Word Ladder.” (Not Lewis Carroll’s word game.) It goes like this:

  1. Make a list of ten verbs related to some profession. (He uses a physician, I used a construction worker.)
  2. Write down ten nouns within your field of vision.
  3. Connect the words that don’t usually go together.
