I have to admit, most of my story ideas never came from the strategy Blank-Brainstorming, but they came from somewhere.

Music.  

I’ll have to say, there are a lot of people who say music has nothing to do with writing and that music won’t help you write at all. Well, I politely disagree. Most my ideas have come from songs. And I’m going to help you do the same.

Most people love music, and have a favorite song or two. They have that one song that brings them to tears, and one that has them dancing around for joy! I actually tend to avoid songs that make me cry, but they’re the ones that help me write the most.

So, now it’s your turn. I have a couple of songs you can listen to, and see what emotion they bring, or what situation pops into your head after listening for a while.

enjoy (: And remember, don’t listen too closely to the lyrics or you may begin to write what the song was about rather than the feeling it gave you, or the scenario that came to your head when you listened to it.
