I was listening to Vivaldi, Violin Concerto in A Minor RV356, when I remembered something I used to do when I was young. In my tweens, before learning how to download music, I’d sit for hours before the radio. Listening to classical music by Bach, Mendelson, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, et al, if a piece I liked began to play, I’d immediately press the record button. It would all be recorded onto a tape. Later in the day or week, while writing my continuation of Pride and Prejudice, I’d play this tape and write a story inspired by the music.
As I illustrated here, music is what mainly inspires my writing. What inspires you guys? Or, what do you do when you have writer’s block? Because I feel stuck in one right now. Just a bit.
