      I began writing "Conversation" as a kind of love letter, in which a boy is working up the courage to reach out to a girl he likes. At some point I realized that I had written a beginning and an end but I was missing the middle. When it occurred to me that the girl should have her own story, I immediately wanted someone else to write it. I had always romanticized co-writing a song (especially a boy-girl duet) but felt incredibly possessive of my material and knew that sharing it would not be easy. What if she came up with something I did not like? I couldn't imagine rejecting a person's ideas. Just like the boy in the song, I took a risk and called Vanessa Reseland to co-write and she came up with the song's 2nd verse. I loved it. Phew. PS - I am in the middle of a bunch of co-writing projects right now. I think the process of writing "Conversation" got me started.
