It does. I sometimes think of what music should go with a certain scene. Hahaha

I can't concentrate writing while listening music. I need peace while writing something. It's either I postpone writing or I listen to music till the song that is currently playing ends.

The lyrics of the songs that are related to the topic I am currently writing do help me write.

I get inspiration from the lyrics or quote them in the article I write.

Music helps me write in many different ways. Sometimes I do get an idea from song lyrics, but for the most part it helps my brain to function while I do write.

It's always in the lyrics and beats. Yes, it helps in a certain way.

To me, yes of course! Music soothes our mind and makes it brood, making us think better and with sweeter thoughts I suppose..!

Not only does music help me to write. It inspires me to do many things. I really love listening to music while doing something. It makes me more alive. Without music, the world seems to be dull and boring. So let music rocks the world and make it more fun to live in.🎵🎶🎧🎻🎹🎷🎺🎸

In my opinion, everyone is different but Iam one of those individuals who loves listening to music while writing whether poetry, letter, etc it actually eases my mind and helps me clarify my thoughts sometimes I even play music that matches the way I feel in terms I think more about the situation and words to the music make the feeling better.

I usually listen to music as I write as I feel it helps me to relax and be creative.

If I am having a really bad bout of writers block, than I go sit in the swing in my backyard and I will listen to the genre of music that best fits my mood. This generally solves my writers block. I think music is such a wonderful outlet for when there doesn't seem to be any other outlet in sight, music can give you a new perspective to what you want your thoughts focus on.
