I've been trying to write an emotionally charged book, but when my day is filled with dealing with dogs and kids' problems, more emotions aren't in my head. I want to escape problems and emotions.
So how do you get in the mood for something like that? I listen to music. LOTS of music. I've found that love songs or Christian music really lets me get past the day-to-day issues and gives me the ability to write something very touching, but not to the point of sickening.
I also use my MP3, filled with cool songs, when someone's stressing me out. I can escape all the noise around me and just focus on the words of those songs. I've found, that when I have a big task to do that I don't like doing, listening to music or talk radio helps a lot. For example, when I have to clean the house, I get out the MP3 and jam out while cleaning toilets. It really helps. I'm tempted to use my MP3 when shopping. I hate shopping and it would make it go faster. LOL!
What does music do for you? How does it affect your day?
Have a great week!
