We are at a lovely little outdoor Italian Cafe. Plates of pizza, pasta, and fish are on tables around us. I enjoy my favorite drink – – water with gas. (Mineral water) A woman walks by holding a basket with a bottle of wine and a loaf of bread. Meanwhile, music drifts out of our restaurant. . .
“It’s fun to stay at the YYYYYYMMMMMCCCCCCAAAA.”
My husband looks like he just swallowed his tongue. I’m sure I have a similar facial expression. Talk about horrifying. We’ve traveled miles to get Italian ambiance and we listen to American music from the seventies? To make it worse, it’s this music?
I shudder. Too bad I left my ear plugs from the airplane trip in the hotel.
1. Write a scene where music is part of the plot.
2. Write a scene where a hint of music plays in the background.
3. In the another story you have written, check to see if adding music will enhance the story or a scene in some way. Have you included enough sound to put your reader inside your scene?
4. Write about your favorite music through a poem. Or your least favorite music!
