Twice in my life, I decided the competition for success as a singer/songwriter was too stiff and my musical talents too slim. The first time, I was about 12 years old. The second, 20+ years later. But I can't get past the idea I'm "called" to the craft and I DO have what it takes. One thing for sure: I'll never know until I give it a full-fledged try. Glad to find this forum. Wishing you great success.

Welcome to the Junction, Don. Nice to have you here. You will have noticed that it took a little while for your first post to appear. This is because first posts need moderation. It's an anti-spam thing. Future posts should appear straight away, although sometimes the second post also needs moderation - not quite sure why.

I think it was in the old movie, "A Raisin In The Sun", from the novel of the same name, that a character advises, 
"You may not get what you go after, but you definitely won't get what you don't go after."
The germ of wisdom in that is probably identifying what you're going after, and conceiving short-term tactical objectives to accomplish that long-term strategic goal. It sounds like you're on the path to do that.

Despite 1,000's of years of Songwriting humans have not exhausted the possibilities. There will always be another Song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

There you have it, Gary. If you want it, go after it. Those who say it's impossible are only sure it's impossible for them ... not for you.

Hello Don, Great to have you here, Welcome to the Junction.  You never know what can really happen unless you try, at best you'll be a superstar, at worst you'll have a blast trying.  Looking forward to seeing you in the forums.  Good luck and best wishes,

You got it, Deacon. The real loser is the guy who never tries.

Welcome to the Junction, Don. Like you, I feel called to write. On my journey, I've learned that success doesn't always come where and how you expect it. When I realized that I probably wouldn't make a living at writing, I turned my expectations on their head. For me, success is being happy and influencing people's lives in a positive way through music. By this measure, I am a successful songwriter. The money is kind of pathetic, but I know I am using my talents in a useful way.  I hope you find what you need here on this site to help you on your journey.

Jen
