There are a lot of people you need to not worry about if you are interested in telling these difficult stories.
Thanks,as of yet I'm not capable of generating the energy to write a song about small things or to copy. I do it because I love the process and being able to create something I can show. I do it for me, to connect with the muse that has been teasing me my whole life, and I know there is no shortage of critics that can't create anything worthwhile. But I want to know their minds.
