Music and Writing #WickedWednesday with @aprilzyon

Music. I love music. I don’t have one specific genre that I will listen to but rather I will listen to everything and anything that might be on. I will admit however that at the moment I’m on a “Rock-Country” kick and I have found myself listening a lot of music while I’m writing.

I know that there are some people out there who have to have absolute silence when they are writing but I’m not one of them.

Everyone has writing rituals and music is one of mine. My only issue is that sometimes I find myself writing lyrics instead of what I wanted to write… That’s one of those “oops” moments.

I have lately found myself sharing whatever tune I’m listening to on Facebook via the share button on Pandora. One of the songs I always share is “Gunpowder and Lead” by Miranda Lambert. Another one is Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood.

And let us NOT forget… Sweet Home Alabama  by Lynard Skynard!

I love music. It helps keeping me moving and it helps my fingers flow over the keyboard.

With that being said however…

Do whatever is best for you. Write the way that makes you comfortable, and know that no matter what don’t compare yourself to the person next to you. You are unique, you are amazing and you have a voice that NEEDS to be heard so make sure that it gets told!

If you listen to music, do it. If you don’t, don’t. I just would like to remind you to make sure you don’t do my boo-boo and leave the lyrics in the MS. (oops!)

Now, here is what you are REALLY here for…..

  1. I’m more of a TV person myself although I will occasionally turn on the tunes, depends on what I’m writing. The TV is usually just for noise to break up the other distracting sounds (fire trucks, trains, light rail, buses, horns, people yelling up/down ten floors, etc) since I prefer to always keep a window open even if it’s freezing outside.
