Can’t we just listen to music? I repeatedly asked Tyler this weekend.
Because, it was, what Tyler called, ‘a big sports weekend’ for him with The Player’s Championship (golf) and cycling on all in one weekend. We have a small apartment so it means either the television is on or the IPod. One or the other. So we must compromise and take turns.
The characters in my current WIP demand that I listen to music and write about it, which has been this incredibly challenging and exciting task. I need complete silence when I write but lately I must stop in between paragraphs, words, and sentences. I must take pause, close my eyes and listen over and over to the songs. To the voices, to the hammering of a drum, to the way the piano notes skip and fall.
With the Linda Eder concert coming up (this Friday!) and playing catch up on 3 weeks of NBC’s “The Voice” this rainy afternoon, it seems I can not get enough music. I want to listen to more and more.
So my ears are eager to know: what you are listening to right now? Who are the musicians that inspire you?
