“There’s a feeling when I’m on to an idea and making something up that’s almost a momentum that carries me and I find pushes me into the next verse. It’s not really a matter of doing an outline. And you know in school we were always taught to do an outline, and I never did that.  I’d always make up my outline after I finished whatever it was that I was writing. And that’s the fun of writing and making something up—kind of getting inside of it and letting it carry you through.”

    I have written lyrics for a song I call “Painted Sky”. I am seeking someone who will take the lyrics and create the music. Also someone who will market the song after completion.

    Could you help with this project?

    Thanks for your consideration.
