Music and Writing

Art inspires art. It amazes me how many master paintings have come from a scene from Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poems. Or how many musicians will say they were inspired by a certain book or movie.

It seems that that creative community turns to itself when in need of fresh inspiration. When I want to craft a scene, I often find myself flipping through old copies of Victoria Magazine to find the “feel” I want to create. Others I know keep pictures of characters, rooms and even snap shots of movie scenes.

Once question I often hear among writers is, “Do you write to music?”

It seems many of us have discovered that music is a way to tap into the emotion one wants on page and keep it there during the grueling, writing, editing, polishing phase.

For this poll, I’m asking specifically about music?
