learned some good things

Hi, went to a songwriting workshop with John Braheny yesterday, learned some interesting things, got a copy of his book for less than I would pay in the bookstore - he signed it too - and even was lucky enough to have my song critiqued.

I feel like I'm getting closer to understanding the real craft of crafting a song, if you know what I mean. Everytime I spend time with someone like John, more lightbulbs go off. He's a Taxi reviewer, too, so it gives you a real good sense of what it's like to be on his side of the submission process. And a good dose of reality when it comes to getting a song past the gatekeepers.

I'll be taking his remarks into consideration as I write - and rewrite - my songs.

Gotta hit the sack - more later!
