When songwriters give songs to singers do they tell them how they want it to sound or do they just trust the singer to sing it free?

I’m assuming being a songwriter is kind of like being an aspiring writer except you send your songs to different music companies? How does one “make it” as a songwriter?

Does anyone know how to become famous? I want to be a singer or songwriter. Where do I get my start? How can I get exposure? I don’t have any industry connections, please help.

Maybe I’m naive but I thought they were the same thing.

Or is the songwriter the composer of the song and the lyricist just comes up with the lyrics?

That, I’d understand.

Help me understand!

I’m a freelance songwriter and I’m looking for some artists to write for. I want to be able to gain enough credibility to where big names will be asking me to write songs for them (EX. Mariah Carey, Tyga, Drake, etc.). The problem is that I don’t know how to promote myself as a songwriter and really get more recognition to where major artists ask me to write their songs. How do I go about doing so?
