After I wrote this post, I started thinking about the importance of music in author’s lives. If there is one other thing that seems to be the most important to an author besides the words they work with, it is the music they listen too. Famous authors down through the ages have listened to everything from pianoforte music, to Mozart, to indie bands and the Beatles to inspire them. And yes, even animals can help.
It’s amazing to me how easily music can bring back memories. How it can remind us of places, experiences and so many other things. I have always found it the perfect way to help with writing. It creates an atmosphere and brings back pictures to your mind.
