In Thank yous

 

    This past Saturday, I spent the day teaching songwriting at Prestonwood Baptist Church, in Plano, TX.  The church has a newly formed songwriter’s group – the brainchild of an old friend (and writing partner), Chris Machen.  Chris has gathered together some 15+ writers who are all helping one another to grow in the craft of songwriting.  Some of the writers are absolute beginners.  Others are truly experienced writers.  But everybody had a great attitude and a genuine desire to learn.  For close to 8 hours, we talked about the craft of songwriting and listened to one another’s songs.  My primary advice to this group (and any new writer) was: work to improve your writing skills so your next song will always be better than your last song.

    I gotta say thanks to all the writers that attended.  But special thanks to Chris and his wonderful wife, Diane, for hosting me and seeing to it that I got to eat real Tex-Mex and real Texas Barbecue while I was there.  Reminded me just how much I miss Texas sometimes!
