'Songs, etc'

with

Paul Williams

 

This month we will take a break from our usual fare of book writing and the business of writing to listen to one of America's great song writers.

PAUL WILLIAMS (Music and Lyrics) is an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter. “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Rainy Days and Mondays,” “You and Me Against the World,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song” “I Won’t Last a Day Without You” and “Let Me Be The One” are among his timeless standards.

His songs have been recorded by such diverse musical icons as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Ella Fitzgerald, David Bowie, Ray Charles, R.E.M., Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughn, Johnny Mathis, Luther Vandross and Kermit the Frog.

Paul is the president of ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers at http://ascap.org.

    SCWA’s guest line-ups are amazing! It was a rare privilege to listen to award winning writer Paul Williams offer pearls of wisdom to writers of all genres. One of my favorites was, “ ’No’ is a gift. When I don’t get something I want, I usually get what I need.” He demonstrated how true this has been in his own life; some of his most negative experiences eventually led to some of his greatest successes as a writer. I want to thank SCWA for the opportunity to hear Mr. Williams speak and wish him all the best as he finishes writing his latest book.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
