Writing Inspiration – Music

The urge to write beckons you to the keyboard, but the blank screen kills the muse. The sudden wave of stress and pressure shatter your confidence and all those accomplishments under your belt do nothing to the mocking voice of doubt.

Relax, every writer has been there. From accomplished seasoned writers to amateur newcomers, we’ve all had to face the dreadful blank screen. What you need is inspiration to help distract you from all that self-destructive noise.

Music is my go to. Music, specifically certain genres, do wonders on easing through those stressful moments.

The Sword – March Of The Lor is a metal instrumental with a dark and gritty sound that may seem more fitting for dark fantasy, but I found it suitable for those tales about the descent into madness.

Dozer – Vultures: An album loaded with a gritty distorted sound with some hot riffs. The whole album seems fitting for a post-apcolyptic setting.

Karma to Burn – Thrity Four: A dark and gritty crunching guitar with a simple beat that combines to deliver an ideal soundtrack for any action intensive scene.

Of course, we all have different tastes, and certian projects require certain genres for sure. I’m not a huge fan of industrial metal, but I listened to bands like Crossbreed and Static-X while working on Turbo Slut: Eat More Pussy – Mr. Deadman because the sound was fitting for a dark cyberpunk dystopia.

I am sure I’m not the only that uses music as a way to feed the muse. What are your go to genres? Do you find that certain sounds, styles, and melodies affect your writing?
