Writing Songwriters spend a great deal of time and energy composing songs about love and loss and regret and d-i-v-o-r-c-e and what prompted Billy Joe McAllister to jump off the Tallahatchee Bridge. All well and good.
But how many songs are devoted to writing? Still, I came up with more titles than I imagined I would. Ho hum, another classic.
Yeah, the Fab Four. But take a fresh listen: Who writes songs about aspiring novelists? And the novel is actually good — trashy perhaps, but certainly marketable and really not all that bad in terms of storyline.
If only I had the knack: At least there used to be. An English folk-rocker, Flynn offers a painful rebuke to those of us who find it more comfortable to put our emotions at one remove by inscribing them on paper.
I thought — erroneously, I now acknowledge — that he was an overblown, undertalented Dylan with more photogenic biceps and a grotesquely symphonic band meant to distract us all from the mediocrity of the singer and his songs.

The great Minneapolis alt hip hop band, led by the amusingly named Slug, turned out this danceable tune inthe chorus of which goes: We lick each slight, and some editors bite, but the fight is right.
We fight and write on.
At this point all you can do is blame the author responsible for the horror show known as fierce attraction: Delusional may be more to the point: When I get down on the pages all I felt, it will make the hardest-hearted of critics hearts melt.
Would that we could all turn our most wretched relationships into such pithy, punch-to-the-gut basics: Who writes every day? And he knows what all too few writers know: God is in the rewrite: Gonna substitute a car chase and a race across the rooftops when the father saves the children and he holds them in his arms.
