Five Reasons to Write to Music
1 – It drowns out distracting background noise. (Like people. Especially if you’re using earphones.)
2 – Music can set the tone for a scene, making it easier to write. It can inspire. Battle scene? Hard and fast music. Magical scene? Something flowing and rhythmic. Sex scene? Well, I guess whatever does it for you!
3 – Music reminds you to engage all of your senses.
4 – People will think you are singing when you’re really talking to your characters.
5 – Finally, who doesn’t look really cool when they’re jamming out to tunes? It will hide the fact that inside you’re having a writer meltdown because your manuscript is a mess.
Music provided inspiration for all of my books. In fact, a single song’s storyline inspired Dragon of the Stars.
Now, ready to be inspired? Start rocking!
