The Process

A long time ago, I saw an interview with Metallica where one of the band members said that they’d never recorded a song and then not released it. I remember thinking “So that’s why you have so many bad songs.”

The last thing I am is a great writer. I’m still trying to find my voice. I want to get there though and I am starting to realize that it means writing more and hitting the publish button less.
