“So your own winning style must begin with an idea in your head” (Vonnegut 66) was a centered understanding from the article that appealed most to my mind. Reason being, from a writing of lyrics my lyrics always come from within. I can relate to a personal experience or a euphoria that I experienced and convey that message through metaphors and anecdotes of sixteen bars. My attention was drawn into the article even more once approaching this milestone line in the article. “If a sentence no matter excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out”, (Vonnegut, 66) was yet another line that was central to my understanding. The relationship to my lyrical writing surfaced to the forefront of my frontal lobe drawing a moment of pause. In that moment, I reflected on memories of having to “cut it”. Removing words, phrases, and metaphors to ensure my audience could clearly relate to what I have to say.  Removing my own context, especially when I thought they were genius bars, was a complicated process for me. Yet after reading this article on how to write with style and really absorbing what the author was advising, having the guts to cut, has become a silver lining in my writing process. It may be difficult to do as the writer; however, for my listing audience, it will guarantee that they hear exactly what I need them to hear and take from my music. This, in the long run, will keep them listening and wanting more from me as an artist.  This read and text will now be associated with my lyrical content writing for music. Even though most of the provided advice and knowledge were previously known techniques that I had relied on in the past, the Authors way of drawing my focus and suggesting precise factors of enhancing my own winning writing style were impressive. I felt the author meant every word, not just as a writer but as a conveyor of a message to help educate the reader. My reaction to this piece of writing branches over into gratefulness as well. Since I’m always on the curve to improve my writing skills, this read came in more than handy. It helped me to draw my own focus on details, to remain myself during my writings and yes to even keep my readers in thought as I write.
