Friends, I have provided writing services to musicians, artists and other talented folks for over twenty years during which time, I have worked very hard to provide for my family. I continue to write and perform and I sure hope to keep it up instead of "aging out". I put the "free" in freelance. The writing and music that I offer takes a lot of time and research. Speaking of research, I have studied and compared rates. Please read the attributes of each service I offer. I know cash isn't the easiest thing to come by so I will barter. Send a private message to me- ernpick@gmail.com and let's talk. I have to pay for this site so yep, there are fees and barter options for most of my work. I cannot guarantee that you will like what I tell you. That's why I offer the personal critique. I will not publish an article about a recording that I do not believe in, therefore, no negative reviews published from me. Remember, all rates vary so don't pay a lot of attention to the listed rates. Those numbers are how the model works. Contact me at ernpick@gmail.com and we'll start from there. Thanks!

This download is complete cover to cover including the beautiful and whimsical art by Jon Griffin. Part memoir, interview, deep thought and research, The Cosmic Path to Melody and Lyric is a personal look at creativity in songwriting, from a songwriter's mind, the minds of some other songwriters, research and just plain pondering. How do people pull songs out of thin air? Is there a Cosmic stream that we all cast our lines into, or do you just stand there waiting for a good one to jump into your bucket? I do not promise to answer any questions, but I do open some doors to consider and wonder. For more on the content and some of the illustrations, Click "The Cosmic Path" on the menu.
