    Thomas Sundell's piece is very interesting. It's remarkable that one can imaginatively travel so far inro a few narrative lyrics.  I think song titles sometimes serve well as short story titles. I myself has a story accepted last year called "Do Nothing Until You Hear From Me."  Of course, that concept (from a famous jazz tune) was worked into the story of a guy trying to make his way after a divorce, especially as regards his relationship with his ex-wife...In any case,  well done with the article, Thomas.

    I enjoyed reading your article,  Tom, "Writing Inspiration: From lyrics to stories. I thought of how when we tend to listen to music, it's the notes and beat,  and rhythm, and maybe not so much the lyrics.  What a great reminder to reflect on lyrics to stir some creative juices!

    Loved Mike Magluilo's piece on what he learned about book marketing from his experience writing his novel A Reason to Run. He is spot on condensing a large subject into an understanding novelists can relate to. I especially liked his #2, Clarity, as having experienced this myself; it is so true! Magluilo clearly brings writers back to seeing what inevitably gets buried when marketing a book.
