Hi everyone, I'm currently studying a professional writing and editing course and for my Journalism class I'm writing a feature article. At first it was going to be about my local council but while sitting at my desk and getting nowhere I came up with something more interesting. Music. More specifically how music can influence writers. I'm an avid listener of music while I write, including right now (Afterglow by INXS) so I'm hoping you'll spend a couple of minutes to answer these questions and help contribute to my feature article IMPORTANT: I'll be using some of the responses as anecdotes or quotes so please state whether you agree for me to use your real name as the source. I'll only print your initials and this article will only be given to my teacher and no one else, thank you. 1) Do you listen to music while you write? if no then why not? 2) What sort? Genres? 3) How does it influence your writing? 4) Do you have a best/worst experience while writing and listening to music?
