Creativity Is Nourished by Conflict
Scott Belsky

Hi Scott, I have been writing pop songs for many years, quite successfully at that. But a few years ago I went to a dark place. Technology had changed the culture of writing songs and I missed the more organic process. I started yapping and blabbing and blogging about it. My passion moved from writing 3 minute songs to writing about my adventures (and misadventures) in writing songs—all because of conflict. The musings took on the shape of a book. I ran with the ball. It felt great. “Confessions of a Serial Songwriter” comes out in March on Backbeat. Thank you, conflict. Congrats to your friend Rachel. Love that song. Shelly
