Being an author can make for a lonely life. Other than each other, many times we have no one to encourage or praise us – or even validate our existence. So when I hear a song about being a writer, I revel in the fact that someone wrote a song “for us.” In this case, I believe Paul Simon did just that.
My favorite lines from this song are: “workin’ on the rewrite, I’m gonna turn it into cash.” The last verse, too, is great – he really takes a pot shot at commercialization. I think you’ll enjoy it. And now, Rewrite by Paul Simon.
