Music as inspiration
Posted: Sun Sep 17, 2023 9:54 pm
Hello fellow writers! In terms of inspiration, do any of you listen to music while composing your thoughts? When I write rough drafts, I have music playing in the background constantly. I have always been more attracted to music over other media (movies, books, tv, paintings, etc) and was wondering if anyone felt the same? My favorite artists to play when writing are Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, and Deftones. I wouldn't say that I particularly sound like any of them composition wise based on their lyrics, but I have always connected with these artists and they put me into a certain mindset. In some ways, I guess you can say that they aided me in finding my voice as a writer (along with personal life experiences). Who do you listen to while writing?
