Music for Inspiration – December Edition

I don’t know about you, but I have often found it hard to find seasonal “Winter” music that doesn’t include any Christmas or holiday carols. One of my favorite harpist, Lisa Lynne, contributed to a wonderful Windham Hill album. While it a Christmas album, I love her particular piece that she recorded for it! I have often used it for writing inspiration. Enjoy!

How about you? What music are you listening to that inspires your writing today?

Authors and Their Music

After I wrote this post, I started thinking about the importance of music in author’s lives.

Music of the Falling Leaves

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.
