    What's really terrible is when you can hear it in your head, but for some reason, you can't translate it to actual music.

    Assuming it's music: Change the key, add a counter melody, have a fade out and introduce a new melody, modulate the original melody, take out one element and replace it with another, add a cowbell and gangsta vocals. I dunno mate, just do something and roll with it. Even if you don't like it at first you can always fix it later! :)

    Yeah. I really do just essentially punch pianos until it's music.

    I usually follow my policy of "doing stuff until it sounds right" (which includes most of your suggestions). Right now I'm working on a transition from part A to part B using some high strings.

    Punching is a good metaphor come to think of it! Everytime you do something creative you're punching anxiety, lack of motivation and other limitations in the face! :)

    Disclaimer: don't actually punch your expensive equipment as doing so might lead to failure of said equipment as well as possible failure of your hand(s)
