Music and poetry have always been intwined so why not select some music to write too? Some people find that they can only do this to music that has no words so you might need to stop and think about how you work best before you start. Albums with words in can be listened to as a whole before you begin writing. The music helps put you in a certain mood or frame of mind which can then be transposed into the page in words.

How does the music make you feel?

Does it remind you of anything/place/person?

What’s the story behind the music?
