A useful quote for shy artists by Liam Gallagher: . Being me is the best fucking gig in the world. . Of course this is a quite shallow statement, but shy writers and artists don't get much attention in these egotistical times! If you have 3 excellent albums in your chest (or screenplays, plays, novels etc.) and want to let them out professionally, don't go down the Nick Drake road. Create a stage persona for communication situations like pitches and fight for your creative talent aggressively. And think of this above-noted quote. And never take quotes like that one too serious. . Creativity Writing Screenwriting Storytelling Courage Persona Talent Film Movie BeingMeIsTheBestFuckingGigInTheWorld LiamGallagher

The song I listened to for the first time in 1991 with A. was the moment when I realized that real storytelling can be in songs - She's Leaving Home by The Beatles, based on a 1966 newspaper article about the runaway Melanie Coe who met The Beatles several times and who got back together with the love of her life many, many years after the separation. What a life story! Man, how I wished A. would run away from home and to me back in those days (I didn't have to, there wasn't anyone to run away from). The autobiographical book about that is finally about to be finished. . Along with the book The Catcher In The Rye, the film Death Of A Salesman, the film A Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, the film The Outsiders, listening to She's Leaving Home was one of the initiations where I developed the wish to write stories. Of course because I could identify myself perfectly with the runaway at that time. .

It's good to know that there are still musicians out there who mastered classic songwriting and deliver songs without one note too much - it helps to listen to those songs while rewriting a text. These guys know about dramaturgy and the art of reduction. .
