Musical Inspiration for Your Writing

Do you find listening to music helpful while writing? How about making use of particular favorites (or even ones you hate) as inspiration for a story? Try this one on for size–which combines issues of communication in a relationship with the added bonus of a special voice. You do think Stephen Hawking is a cool dude with special gifts of intellect don’t you? How remarkable that he’s on this Pink Floyd cut–Keep Talking from 1994.

Just remember, it’s OK to be inspired but use of even a single line of lyrics in your published written work requires express written permission by the rights holder of the song. Simply citing it is insufficient. Use your own words–not the recording artist.

Anyway, consider this as a writing prompt.  Please let me know if you think this is helpful.
