(Today, I am out of town helping bake 14-layer chocolate cakes for Christmas. I’d give you a slice if I could. But I can’t, so we’ll just have to mourn that fact and move on…)
Okay, so I’ve been introducing new indie musicians (they are new to me, at least!) over the last couple of weeks. And I was going to post about another new artist today, but instead, I’d like to discuss music that moves you to write.
Do you mellow out to a favorite Mozart piece or Chopin while sharpening your dialogue?
Or maybe you rock out to Third Day or even Lynard Skynard while working on a character sketch?
Do you type to the rhythm of Motown? Or perhaps you can only write when listening to the sound of silence?
I am sometimes a “sound of silence” type of gal. Matter of fact, that’s all I used to be able to write to. No music. No humming. NOTHING. I’ve changed. I’ve grown. I’ve…*gasp!*…learned that I CAN do things differently than before. 🙂
And right now, as it is Christmas time, I am enjoying the sounds of Bing Crosby, Brenda Lee, Perry Como, Stevie Wonder and the like. Christmas music is one of my most favorite things around this time. I start listening to it on the “all Christmas music – all the time” radio stations as soon as they start broadcasting (which is usually the week of Thanksgiving). I can cook, clean and write to this wonderful music from long ago…at least until we hit New Year’s. 🙂
So what music moves YOU to write?
