Two guitars and a blue grand piano...

The last few months haven't been terribly conducive to production.

They have indeed been terrible.

I'm banking on the fact that it's all grist to the creative mill.



Rest assured I won't be wearing hats anytime soon.


Proofreading - Liner Notes

Up to this point the music has pretty much followed the rules of writing - you've seen the theme originate and be developed - but traditionally at this point - I would be polishing and tweaking the previous piece - and that's not what I want to do.

I have no intention of following the rules of writing.

Seriously - I suspect most of the rules are just common sense anyway - I mean really - you need 5 rules to help you write? Here's one rule for you:

1/ Write

I'll add a second:

2/ Read

There - that should just about do it.

I truly believe that someone who writes and reads their work five times over will produce a much better result than someone who writes once, learns a lesson and then applies it once and moves on.

I believe in my balls, that when it comes to the creative arts, there is no substitute for doing it.

Sure - you should read and be aware of the canon, there is much to learn - but when it comes to your own original work - that can only come from you - and how else are you going to learn your work unless you do it?

So - you can of course use this structure to produce a piece of writing fit for the world and who knows - maybe it is or maybe you just polished a turd. Or you can take the rule book and throw it away - and write.

This is the Music to Write to playlist and I am interested in serious writers -if you're a writer and you want help writing - welcome - I wrote this for you.

Forget everything else...

put this on...

...and write.

You're a fucking writer!
