As Tears Go By #Writing

Steve Layman has a great excerpt from Keith Richards’ Life:

“We had two lines and an interesting chord sequence, and then something else took over somewhere in this process.  I don’t want to say mystical, but you can’t put your finger on it.  Once you’ve got that idea, the rest will come.  It’s like you’ve planted a seed, then you water it a bit and suddenly it sticks up out of the ground and goes, hey, look at me.  The mood is made somewhere in the song.” 

I confess, I have the book, but haven’t read it yet :(.

Steve’s post is, here.

The book is, here.

Thanks for the prompt, Steve.
