Music and Writing

Someone said to me, "Music speaks to your soul."

Maybe it does. I guess it does, on some level. Music can hypnotize you, inspire you, put you to sleep or rile you up. Music can be soothing, irritating, loud or soft.

Music can be anything your mind imagines. Sing. Whistle. Tap. It's all music.

And your soul listens.

Now, what the hell does this have to do with writing? I'll tell you: Writing is the soul speaking.

That's right. When I write, I'm responding to the music.

Do you hear it?
