It’s the final day of our Week of Lyric Writing Tools. This time, we’re going to look at utilizing open endedness in lyrics.  

Open Endedness

What is the first thing you talked about when walking out of Inception?

The ending.

Masterful. This is why I strive for the Christopher Nolan principle of creativity.
