All I know is you hang around Mudcat and songs come. Whether you want them or not. Oh-- you mean GOOD songs?
I haven't a clue.
Amos-- cut????????? Noooooo!!!!!! Oh all right.
I have a file in my WP I call the Doodoo Dump. All the words I am madly in love with that had to be cut because they just did not belong in whatever I was writing. The perfectly crafted stuff that just did not... fit. I use 'em to start something else, later! A phrase may pop out that is just right for something brand new. And then I don't feel like I've killed them, just put them in a coma!
