Writing Songs With Joseph Pulitzer: Here’s A Pulitzer Prize For You

Joseph Pulitzer gave this advice to journalists but I think it is wonderful guidance for writing great songs too…

Put it before them
Briefly so that they will read it,
Clearly so they will appreciate it,
Picturesquely so they will remember it
and, above all,
Accurately so they will be guided buy it’s light

(quoted: The Daily Telegraph)
