I’m an odd sort of writer. I am! I’m too connected to music, I mean, it’s actually become a problem.
If I’m writing, I have to have music on while I work. But oftentimes I get so caught up in the music that I can’t write my own thoughts. I get lost in the lyrics or the melody – or both – and I can’t find my own voice. I could just listen to music for ages, I think. And I want to write, it’s just so frustrating when I can’t find the words simply because I’m enjoying Claire de Lune. Amazing song, by the way. Have you ever heard it, really listened? It’s wonderful the way the notes seem to hang in the air, heavy and light all at the same time.
That’s how I want my words to be. Heavy and light, all at the same time.
