A couple of weeks ago, I posted my first “Anthems for Authors” piece. I like songs about writers – a lot. But Lady Writer by Dire Straits is my favorite. That’s probably because Mark Knopfler wrote it for me. That’s right. You heard me. Yes, I have been on television – a few times. I know I made those appearances long after the song was released, but that doesn’t matter. As I said in my last post of this sort, this is one of those times when I exercise my right to replace reality with my version. That’s just how I roll.
So enjoy this video – the lyrics are fantastic and Knopfler’s guitar skills are legendary. And now, Lady Writer by Dire Straits.
