I finished reading a book about writing this week that was written by Brett Lot. Bret is not a songwriter, he writes novels. Songwriting and novels. What's the difference? About 300 pages. Ha! Ha! I was able to learn some things from his book. One thing that he talked about was time. Sometimes I struggle with time. Maybe the first verse is today and the second verse is twenty years ago. Or maybe the song takes place in the here and now. Maybe it is about an incident that took one day or one minute. I finished writing a song this week. It is called Melt. The song is about a two hour time frame. I came up with the idea for this song when I heard someone talking about getting married. When you get married you don't want to be with someone who is okay, or nice, or interesting. We want someone who can make our heart Melt.
