I’ve always found that music actually inhibited the writing process….but if I listen to persuasive music before entering the “writing space” I can harness the energy of whatever I am writing.
So for instance, if I’m writing a fight scene….a little Eminem doesn’t hurt before hand.
If I’m going more romantic….throw on a little Barry White…..
Maybe that’s extreme, but if you listen to lyrics while you are writing, you will automatically start to write the tone and lyric of the song. Welcome to the human brain
