Question for the writers out there:

Does music inspire your writing?  Do you hear a song and envision a scene, or do you write a scene and then connect the perfect song to it?  Or does music not move you at all when it comes to crafting your story?

Please share, if you don’t mind!

  1. I tend to get inspired by music. I never used to listen to music when I wrote before. Most of the time, I had the TV on as background noise, but recently I’ve been starting to use playlists and music. I don’t usually hear a song and envision a scene. Most of the time I already have the scene in my head and I know how it’s going to play out beforehand, but I make a playlist after that sort of gets me hyped up or in the mood~ to write the moment.

  2. I like to listen to instrumental music while writing, especially upbeat ones. It feels like they’re setting the pace for me and I have to fall in synch with them. Occasionally I try to match the music to the mood of the story, and that helps me greatly. 🙂
