I Hate Being Old: I Could Write A Pop Hit, Given The Opportunity

by Shelt Garner

I used to write lyrics all the time because it was very, very relaxing. But I wrote them very quickly. And I don’t know anything about music. I might write some more soon because it’s so relaxing, but it’s also a huge waste of time when I could be working on my novel.

I don’t know guitar. And even if I became a middle-aged cliche and learned how to play guitar now, I would still have to overcome the ageism. The entire music business is designed from the ground up to prevent people like me to break into it.

But maybe once I finish the two books in this novel story I’m working on right now I’ll learn guitar. I like how writing lyrics force an economy of words on you that is very challenging.
