Writing and Music could be described as flip sides of the same coin. Fraternal twins of the Word.
Songs are merely flash fiction set to music, the words weaving in rhythm and rhyme to lift us up or send us crashing down. Novels also have a rhythm, a style or tone that is unique to each author. It's easy to hear when the words tell a story of humor or hope but maybe a little harder if they are full of danger and despair. Take it from me though, beauty can be found even in the brutal.
Thriller/Action=Rock N Roll
Middle Grade=Justin Bieber
Feel free to disagree with my pairings. But does the genre you write match your musical preference?
Come on...tell it.
This is the first Wednesday of the month and time for the Insecure Writers Support Group, hosted as always by our captain Alex Cavanaugh.
My insecurity? That I might be tone deaf and slightly off-key. But I've never let that stop me before.
