I think it's great. no matter how inane it might seem to be, it isn't inane to the person doing the writing.
ive pondered that very question myself, tonpas.<br />
for example, my youngest sister (who i cant f***ing stand!! acted in one play - one lousy play for a handful of family members of the cast and crew in the ba<x>sement of some hospital out in lunenburg. now all of a sudden - shes Vanessa Redgrave...gawd! shes so STUPID!!!
thats another thing. she cant sing to save her life. hypothetically speaking, if she was ordered to sing any song, it could even be one that she chose!!! i guarantee, your ears would be bleeding by the second chorus.
Skill can come with practice. Nobody would achieve anything if they assumed they were no good at what they wanted to do. Wanting to do it can give the impetus to develop the talent.
Who says real talent is born with the person?
No it isn't. Beethoven wasn't born playing the piano or composing. He was encouraged by others to play the piano from an early age. He then used the skills he'd learned to channel his emotions into that art. Anyone who possesses strong emotions (which means all of us in one way or another) can only channel them into the areas they've learned. Its the combination of emotions and hard work that creates a great work of art, and success encourages the talent to grow. There have probably been many geniuses whose talent withered and died without the right encouragement or training.
you don't have to be talented to write verse. you just have to want to.
I happen to think VERY highly of myself
