A Rose by Any Other Name by Judy Croome Walking into a grocery store to buy some butter, we go straight to the aisle marked ‘Dairy’, choose the brand we prefer and head to the till to pay for it. Imagine how difficult shopping would be if we couldn’t name the item we wanted. Shop …
Take the “5 Songs That Inspire You” Challenge Whenever I need that little extra motivation I like to listen to certain songs that make me feel good. This is by no means a glowing gem of insight, but merely a slap back to reality for those people who push themselves to write for extended periods …
There aren’t many people who would argue that the Beatles have influence- or rather don’t have influence.  Even fewer still would argue that they have never heard of them.  They are the most successful rock band of the 1960s—possibly of the twentieth century.
