but for whatever reason, i haven’t sat down to write it.
i kept meaning too.
then i read a blog post today by CrossPoint Creative Genius Stephen Brewster that asked a question at the end and i found myself answering it with the idea that i had been wanting to blog about anyway…
so instead of elaborating, i decided to share what i had replied in the comments:
as a lifetime writer, i’ve written so many things, but recently have been enchanted by songwriting – with the realization that it’s the one form of writing that you can experience over and over again, 1000’s of reruns, not just one or two… this seems like great stewardship of the best ideas and messages. all of that being said:
Jason (dyba) was telling me it was smart that i had started writing with really talented writers, that he himself spent more time writing alone before he started to write with others.
i said i was writing alone too… it just wasn’t songs. it was articles, scripts, books…
He said you were putting your songs into stories, and now you’re putting your stories into songs.
what a blessing to be able to do both.
the stories in songs… get told more often.
