I just found JPF through Barbara Cloyd's website. My husband and I moved to Nashville about three years ago, and I helped start the fiction program at Abingdon Press.
I retired early in January and have turned to my love of music to "soothe the soul," which is pretty battered after a long career in publishing. I've traveled the country teaching at writing workshops and looking for great novels to publish. But that's behind me. Now lyrics flood my mind, and I jot them down. If nothing else, it's great therapy. LOL
I'm learning to play the guitar and now the keyboard. It's tough to write down the music in your head when you don't play an instrument. Since retirement, I've thrown my obsessive self into learning music theory and the Nashville numbering system.
Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I'll be lurking in the songwriters forum, learning from those of you who are working at your craft. I wish you all the best in your endeavors!
"If you are stuck in your musical composing, be unreasonable. Change your environment. If you are stuck in your lyrical efforts, instead of forcing the same old words out, force yourself to do unreasonable things." -Brian Austin Whitney
