Let It Flow

Okay, not certain if this will make my fellow writers and/or musician friends feel inspired -- or if it will make them want to bang their heads against the desk.

But here's a little clip to show how easily Elton John writes songs. Sir Elton is rumored to be able to write music to anything. Any piece of writing. Hand him the phone book, and he could turn it into a song. Let it be rumor no more. In this clip, Elton is handed an oven manual. In other words, the directions to using an oven. He places it on the piano and proceeds to turn out a song. On the spot.

Feel free to use this clip as a cure for writer's block. Sir Elton doesn't need a special room to write. Or a special pen. Or a special piano. He just sits down and gets to it. And as soon as I post this blog entry, I'm going to do the same.
