Writing is my Music

Writing is my MusicNothing inspires me to write more than music: the flow of a beat, the emotional charge in a rush of wordless energy, the power of sound.

Some people need images to gather their ideas, to ground them in reality. Some people see their worlds in vivid colors and landscapes; some people have all-encompassing imaginations that expand beyond all the senses entirely. But my writing is my music and I am my writing. And I’m writing what I feel, what I hear. I’m writing the music in my mind, the humming insistence: the song of words singing in a language I’ll never actually be able to say.

How do you see your characters in the worlds you create? Does music have a strong role in your writing? Feel free to answer in the comments or to click on the link below to read the rest of my Friday musings.
