I spent two years figuring out how I could turn it into something that would satisfy me as a musician but also make some kind of cross-cultural link.

Harry Carey, Jr.
Many novice writers, students in particular, think that writing is little more than copying down their self-talk, the palaver of the voices they hear in their heads. Of course, self-talk is thinking, and writing begins with thinking.

I think that I was lucky that I was 30 when I did 'Love Story', which came with this extravagant pop celebrity. I had already done 15 years of what I call 'real' work.'
