Two Books of Inspiration

These are two books that I’m going to re-read. They are both fantastic books and always inspire me to write and create.

Andrea Stolpe’s Popular Lyric Writing, 10 Steps to Effective Storytelling is an amazing read. I highly recommend it to any songwriter no matter your experience level. Great info on how to use objective/destination (free form word play) as a starting point to get the creativity flowing.

Ted Kooser is absolutely my favorite poet of all time (I’m a fan).  This little short book is full of great advice about different ways to think about poetry.  He’s a Pulitzer Prize winning poet and was Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 2004 – 2006.
