Music: The Constant Muse

This challenge has ended!

Music has been an inspiration to me my entire life. It helps me with my writing, my art, ect. I’m sure that I’m not the only person who feels this way. I would like for everyone to write something, anything, that is inspired by some type of music. Tell us who inpired you, and then wrtie. Let the words flow from you. I hope this challenge sparks some creative juices in everyone.

    Mine was inspired by “Moonshiner” by Bob Dylan. It’s an excerpt of a scene from a screenplay I’ve been working on.

    This challenge actually inspired the short story I’m writing for my English final! I’ll enter it when I’m done with it.

    No musical artist will ever know how drastically their music will affect listeners.

    I keep entering, but I think my best effort yet is still my first, and even that isn’t too good. I’ll find the right muse eventually.

    I love how some songs are like mini novels. There can be a lot of content and poetry in a songwriter’s short craft.

    Enter as many as you’d like.

    Yeah, I’d like to enter more than once as well. Music inspires a lot of what i write. Music is my life.
