The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Musical Monday: Across The Universe


Attributed to John Lennon and Paul McCartney, I’m pretty sure this one was John all the way. This song is gorgeous in its use of language.

“Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe”

This is one of my all-time favorites.

Thanks to all for stopping by Matt’s blog last week to have at my query. If you haven’t done this (i.e., had your query vetted in such a fashion) I recommend it. And thanks to Nancy who kept pushing me to do it! I learned a lot and it’s given me a fresh perspective on my query.

Between that and this weekend’s graduation events (which was yesterday, at the lovely setting pictured below) I’m pretty wrung out. I’ll be back on Friday, see you then!

  1. You can't go wrong with The Beatles! And no thanks necessary, my friend. I just want the best for you and for your book to find and agent and a publisher so everyone can enjoy it.

  2. Oops, I plagiarized Nancy in my comment to Bonnee–we don't want that, not at all. Tanks for the comments, all. See you in a couple.

  3. I can't even remember now what I wrote! I think I said 'you can't go wrong with the Beatles', but it's all kind of hazy now.
