Writers Write...

Most of you guys know that I am fascinated by stories and storytelling. Songs, short stories, film... well-told stories are what inspire me and they are what I try to create. I've tried a lot of different types of writing over the years. Sermons, screenplays, essays, and short stories have all helped me hone my eye and ear for story and have informed what I do in the context of songwriting as well. 

More important than my own writing, I try to expose myself to great storytelling wherever I can find it. The work of other poets, novelists, filmmakers, and songwriters have been invaluable to me as I have attempted to define and refine my own voice.

And so; this blog...

What I'd like to do here is throw out some other types of my own writing, maybe some running narrative on what gave birth to some of these songs, and... to shine a light on some of the stuff that has inspired and amazed me along the way. I'll talk some about my writing... I'll write some about things that matter to me... and I'll tell you some of the folks who have motivated and challenged me to tell better stories.

Stories about stories...

    I love writing too. I wish one day I could be able to write some great book as well. Maybe I don’t know but I don’t have that courage to take such smart move.
