Music-making and writing "play well" together for Edward Kelsey Moore!
Last year Minnesota Public Radio commissioned Edward Kelsey Moore to write a series of short essays for their web portals. This year they have renewed the commission, so E.K.M. will be sharing his thoughts in new writings over the coming months! The first in the new series is titled Escaping the Tupperwear Tub. Here is M.P.R.'s description of the piece 'For decades, my pattern remained consistent,' writes cellist and best-selling author Edward Kelsey Moore. 'Full of excitement over each new project, I would begin to write. But then ... [each] short story went, unfinished, into the Tupperwear tub in the basement.' Read how Moore overcame procrastination and about the joy of finishing one's projects.
