Music inspires writing

Listen to music today. Close your eyes as you hear the sounds. What images flash through your mind? Free-write immediately about those images. What senses does the music inspire?

Change types of music. If you were listening to rap, now try classical. If you heard classical, meditate to hymns, country, rock and roll, or jazz. With each selection, continue writing about the scenes you see.

Next, read over your writing. Which piece do you like best? Feel passionately about? Use this to become the setting, character or jump-off-point of your next creative poem, story, or essay.
