A good friend called me the other day; He’s a very accomplished pianist and musical director. He was reading my book of poetry, Butterflies and Bullets. He went on to say that while reading my work he kept hearing music in his head. And could I give him permission to use my poetry for lyrics. What a compliment! He said he was especially taken with, “Hair-cut…Two Bits”, about a down-and-out cellist, gambler and barber in New Orleans.
We artists, regardless of what we do or what we write should lift each other up whenever or wherever we can. When I review a book I make certain that my review (if bad) lists helpful and constructive criticism and never cruel.
It is my hope that my posts relating to writing helps a new writer begin their journey in writing….and helps experienced writer learn something new.
