song meme

A good friend of mine, Tim Clague, tagged me with the song meme.  I don’t usually do the memes, but Tim is like a demi-god so I thought I’d better do it or face his god like vengeance.  Anyway here are the instructions:

Find a song that sums up what you think it means to be a writer and post the lyrics on your blog and why you’ve chosen it. NB: It doesn’t have to be your favourite song, it just has to express how you feel about writing and/or being a writer. It can be literal, metaphorical, about a particular form or aspect of writing – whatever you want. Then tag 5 others to do the same (reprint these instructions).

I have chosen a spoken word performance that I think summarizes my current thinking on me as a writer.  You will have possibly seen this posted on my blog before, but it’s so damn good it can bare repeating:


I’ll think of some folks to pass this on to later.  Right now it’s time for some whiskey.
