Writing Songs - Poems and Flash Fiction set to Tunes

At Hensley's Carlsbad, CA

I am in a band called The Hillside Music Club, and our guitarist suggested that maybe we should write some original songs. Well, it's another thing I never thought I would be able to do, but when I started to think of story telling through music, the words just started coming. Some songs are like flash fiction where you get a real sense of story in just a few lyrics and the others are similar to poems. So far I am up to about seven decent songs that need tunes, so we are working on that next. Maybe this is how I'll finally make some money writing ;).
