Songwriter Blog in the New York Times

Rosanne Cash Elvis Costello Kris Kristofferson John LeventhalWith music now available with a single, offhand click, it’s easy to forget that songs are not born whole, polished and ready to play. They are created by artists who draw on some combination of craft, skill and inspiration. In the coming weeks, the contributors to this blog — all accomplished songwriters — will pull back the curtain on the creative process as they write about their work.

With contributions by Suzanne Vega, Rosanne Cash, Andrew Bird and Darrell Brown, Measure for Measure offers fascinating insight into the creative processes of professional writers. Thanks Corinne, for the heads up.
