Music as Inspiration:
I think music is a great way to get in the right state of mind to write scenes or characters with particular emotions. It's almost a personal Virtual Soundtrack
- Has anyone ever assigned a song to a character or scene that you thought described them quite nicely?
Don't Fear the Spiders
Music tends not to inspire me but distract me from my work.
Keep it breezy!
To each their own. I've never tried writing while listening to any kind of music, but I could see how it might not work for some people.
I don't know enough music for that, lol. I guess I need to get familiar with more indie/alternative music, because that would be way more helpful than rihanna when I'm writing about a murder investigation.
Winter is coming.
Who Am I?
I have an action scene in which my heroes stop a terror cell from setting off a nuclear bomb in New York. I cant read what I wrote without hearing U2's "Until the End of the World".
“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”
I like to play whichever music is appropriate for the scene I'm writing.
Sokka: My first girlfriend turned into the Moon.
Zuko: ...That's rough, buddy.
Writer's Welcome Wagon
I like to play any kind of music. I once wrote a serious scene to "Gangnam Style", and I'm writing a mundane scene to dramatic Bruno Mars
I like seeking themes for my characters. It also serves as Mnemonic because I constantly skip from story to story, and their themes help me refresh their personalities in my mind.
I also like to write with things on the background.
Okay, I'm thinking Evanescence for drama and Florence for epic-o-city.
Winter is coming.
Thunder, Perfect Mind
I have been inspired by a great deal of music, but I prefer to actually work in silence because it is hard for me to focus on creative activities when I am being mentally engaged by something else.
One of my projects is based on The Downeaster Alexa by Billy Joel.
The road goes ever on.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known
to get one of those.
