I have had comments about each lyric this week that were very gratifying to me -- showing me that I'm making progress toward my goals.
The first lyric posted was a song called "Make A Better Man Of Me" about a husband going the extra mile to show love for his wife and family is more than "just words" and that it makes him a better man. The commenter said, "This now gives me shivers! I think that's a good sign. Just re-read it and I shivered again. The speaker is so very honorable and lovable. Any male artist would love to sing this song since it would make him look so good."
The second lyric was about a man who lost his wife and finds solace in the years of greeting cards she gave him... a written history of their love, called "It's All In The Cards." The commenter on that one said, "This song brought tears to my eyes. I would love to hear it on the radio."
I appreciate any honest feedback as helpful. Comments like this not only make me happy about the work I'm producing but also that I may be getting where I want to go in terms of the purpose of my writing.
