I know plenty of writers who must have music on while they write. They create playlists that go mesh with their WIP.
I am not one of them.
Most of you already know that I cannot think and listen at the same time. And my mind does not tune out the music the way so many others can. But that does not mean that I am not inspired by music.
Music can create a mood, a picture, an emotion that tugs at a very basic and raw part of our souls. Something all of us are striving.
I mean - what is Jaws without those two two notes played over and over again, building up the suspense? What is E.T. without that sweltering series of notes while they fly in front of the moon?
By the way, William Joseph is old friends with my husband. His style of music is the type that inspires me to write.
How has music inspired you? Do you use music to help you write?
