Rebirthed Like a Phoenix Through the Spirit of The Beat
Rebirthed Like a Phoenix Through the Spirit of The Beat

Author's Note: There is a constant struggle between the things you have to do and the things you want to do. Fortunately, encouragement comes from the strangest places, like maybe your last two customers of the night. Even though everything doesn't always work out, you know you must be doing something right.

This is a sad and relateable story. Just remember (assuming the author is relating through the narrator) that even if you can't make a career out of music, that doesn't make it any less beautiful. Remember to always keep playing, singing, listening to, and appreciating it - no matter where life takes you. If it was meaningful to you at one point, it will be relevant at another.

Good job, I like it.

Great work. Kind of reminds me of That Thing You Do. Your prose is as potent as your honesty.

Great pacing. The writing was obviously aimed at this kind of audience, and it hit home.

Nice one. While I'm tempted to say good luck with a music career, I really must say, you clearly have a talent for writing and I think you will go far in the field of journalism. That being said, whether or not you're able to make a lasting career in a band, 30 years from now you'll look back on the experience with a smile regardless of where you end up!

Thank you! In a perfect world, I can do both.
