Swift is beginning the creative process of her new album, according to USA Today newspaper.

"It`s starting," said Swift, reports

"All the anxiety is starting. When the anxiety starts, the writing happens right after, usually," she added.

Swift has started penning songs for next album, but it may take some time before they are ready for release. She wants her work to be different everytime.

"Whatever I write in the first year is going to get thrown away. I`m going to like it, but it`s going to sound like the last record. The second year usually sounds like the next project," said the 23-year-old.

"I think you need to change up your influences. I think you need to be inspired by different things than you were inspired by before," she added.

Swift has earlier dated singers like John Mayer, Joe Jonas and Harry Styles. Her failed relationships with them, reportedly inspired her to write songs.
