Music: The Ultimate Cure for Writer’s Block

When I get stuck in my writing there are three things I do: Go running and listen to music, go driving and listen to music, sit still and listen to music. In other words, music is where I find my inspiration and muse. It stirs thoughts in my head that become stagnant and makes images pop up behind my eyes as if a movie is playing in my head. As I’ve dedicated much of my time lately to writing, here are some tunes that repeat on my playlist:

Close to Me—The Cure
Cupid—Amy Whinehouse
The Zephyr Song—Red Hot Chili Peppers
Get Buck in Here—Ludacris, P. Diddy
Homecoming—Kanye West
Beloved—Minnie Driver
I Feel it All—Feist
How to Save a Life—The Fray
New Soul—Yael Naim
Unsingable Name—Mike Doughty
White Lexus—Mike Doughty
Time is Running Out—Muse
