Name for evernote-like website for lyricists

Hey guys. I've been developing a website for lyricists and I need help coming up with a name for it. It's going to be similar to http://www.masterwriter.com/ but will be completely web based, kind of like an evernote but with tools for lyricists (rhyming dictionary, thesaurus, etc). I want it to become a virtual creative space for lyricists. I came up with some names that aren't already taken (below) but none of them have really clicked with me yet.…See More

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
