Something odd has happend the other day. I have heard many of times that music is good for writing. I hear it lets you relax and focus on your work; its all just a matter of finding the right genre of music. For the longest time I couldn't find anything I could focus with. I tried all sorts of music I listen to on a daily bases such as: Classic rock, Reggea, hard rock. Anything I could think of I tried, nothing worked for me. Last night I was working on a rough draft I have been pounding my head over and with no music I couldn't stand it. It felt like I had nothing to motivate me. so I stopped right away and searched the internet for new genres of music. After a while I ran into classical music such as: Antony Holborne, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Bahtoven. I sat and gave the music a chance. At first I thought this was the dumbest thing ever, but once I cleared my head of what others might think, I soked in the beauty. I haven't found one artist I didn't like yet. I am so focused with this genre of music. I even catch myself listening to it when not working on my stories; like as of now I am absorbing the beauty of the music while I write this. As a 17 year old kid I find this to be odd seeing how not every Junior in high school would listen to Johann Friedrich Fasch. I have discovered once I put aside the stuck up attitude of a school boy I can find I enjoy things I never would have thought I would have. I find music to be a great technique for writing. I thought I would post my experience to let you guys know that if you haven't found the right kind of music don't stop searching; it's crazy what you can find. Or if you don't like the music playing while you write that's cool too. I for one couldn't stand it. I hope this has helped anyone who has been having similar problems.
