Music To Write To: Jimmy Cliff, Sitting in Limbo
I've mentioned Jimmy Cliff's "You Can Get it if You Really Want" before, but this week, as I wait to hear from my editor about the direction my next book should take, I find myself inspired by "Sitting in Limbo." Cliff wrote it after the death of his long-time producer, Leslie Kong, as he searched his soul as to how he should proceed in his musical career. He began to produce his own work, and made a success of it. As an independent--and impatient!--author, it helps me to know how he felt before he did so.
