Writing as Jazz, Jazz as Writing: Part 2
Scott Myers

I love the jazz analogy — I play a little and there’s a just once or twice I’ve played things I didn’t know I could play. It’s the same experience when writing and ideas seem to present themselves out of nowhere.

There’s a line that I think comes from Thelonius Monk — it’s from a hand-written note titled T. Monk’s advice — it goes: “The *inside* of the tune (the bridge) is the part that makes the *outside* sound good.” That’s always said something to me about the inner workings of a story and the way it looks on the screen.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
