What is the Sound of Writing? #septemberchallenge #wyho

Usually, I have to psyche myself up to write.  Yeah, I know, even though I like doing it.  Gotta get up, wake up, have some coffee and silence all those naysaying self-talkers running around in my brain.

Then I play some music that makes we want to get up and dance, or run around the yard, or ... write!  In fact, I listed to a video on YouTube of "Boondocks" by Little Big Town.  In fact, there's a whole "Country" playlist filled with songs that (mostly) rev me up something fierce!  And the more engaged and excited I am, the more passionate my writing, and the clearer my 'voice'.


  1. A great way to find and share that clear voice, LuAnn! Lovely! ♥

  2. I love Country too. I used to have great playlists set up on Grooveshark with country music and Celtic music. Sadly, Grooveshark is no more what it used to be. I'm looking at alternatives. Meanwhile, I use YouTube as well.

    1. Grooveshark, is that like Pandora? Chalk up another Celtic music fan here, Corinne! :O)

  3. I love country music too...And actually any kind of music just helps me focus on the writing and silence the outside noise :)

  4. My only problem is having time to write. But when I do write, I need to do it in silence! Sure, I can put music on but I get so focused that I block out the music so it doesn't really make much of a difference XD
