Literary Addicts Weekly Meme: Music as Inspiration

It’s Wednesday! And that means it’s time for the Literary Addicts Weekly Meme! Every Wednesday, they suggest a fun theme to write about. The theme of this week: “Book playlists (pick a song list). Authors are famous for using music as inspiration. What would yours be?”

This is a tough question to answer because I don’t like to listen to music when I write. I find it too distracting. I want to listen to the song instead of the thoughts in my brain! But I attended a presentation once by an editor from a major publishing house, and he said that if he ever received a manuscript with a story like the one in this song, he would recommend publication! The song is “Travelin’ Soldier” by The Dixie Chicks, and it’s one of my favorite songs. If you haven’t heard it before, listen to it and read the words in the video below. You’ll see why it’s such an interesting story!

Does any music inspire you to write? CLICK HERE for links to the other blogs participating in this meme to see what songs awaken their muse!
