For me, the worst writing generally just 'flips' things: this person's really a traitor; it was all a dream; etc. Nothing is so ruinous as a forced 'twist,' I think.
I think of myself as a writer as much as I think of myself as a linguist and an academic. I really enjoy writing - playing with language and getting just the right metaphor.
I think there are people who really always have and always will care about the quality of music in general, about the sound of the music, things like that.
We all have these tendencies in us that could go this way or that. I think that's the real key in writing. To look at a character without judgment.
I don't think you ever stop giving. I really don't. I think it's an on-going process. And it's not just about being able to write a check. It's being able to touch somebody's life.
I wouldn't want to make the same record over and over again or look the same or be the same. I think that's just human life in general, though.
I think that, whatever happens, I'm just happy I've written those songs and I've made an album. That's really big for me, and I'm proud of that.
There's a generation of people I think without a strong connection to family, to religion, to civic duty. They have a real disassociation from the problems of the world.
I think life on the road really suits very egotistical men. It's set up for kings.
