The concept of Music to Words was born on a lonely, word-blocked night in Pittsburgh. It came to me as I realized I dealt with writer's block by using music to ignite my imagination. This idea was further verified in a non-fiction writing classroom with one of my favorite professors ever, Jonathan Callard. One day Professor Callard had us do an exercise where we wrote while listening to certain music, letting the sound pull our writing in a direction. Or, vice versa, letting our writing pull the sound into a different place. It was a great way to bring out great writing, and I haven't been able to stop since. With that concept cemented into this blog, I came up with the idea to start a Music to Words series. Simply press play and read.
