Love to write lyrics!
Glad to have found SongStuff. I have always loved writing ANYTHING. I was an advertising copywriter for half of my working years, (the other half was in the arcane world of municipal bonds—go figure!) Now in retirement, I’ve discovered lyric writing. I’ve only been doing this for about 6 months, but have entered my lyrics in some national contests and so far have won Two Honorable Mentions, which were real morale boosts. I want to get better and better, and have my songs produced. I would love to collaborate with a musician to make a complete product. I hope to contribute to SongStuff by critiquing lyrics responsibly and helpfully, and I will submit my lyrics for your comments, too.
I’m particularly interested in songs about women, for women. Influences are Carly Simon, Streisand, The Beatles, Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver. Some might say “old;” I prefer “classic.”
