  1. Music can help in so many ways. Although I am old and no longer have the romantic angst that I experience in my youth, I have always had a love of classical music too, and it still supports me through difficult times. Same process, different music.

    1. Such is the beauty of music. It is a thread woven through any fabric of life.

  2. Never would've pegged you as a Linkin Park fan!
    Music is very important in my life and definitely contributes to my writing.

  5. Ah, yes. Good Ol' Linkin Park. High School would've been a different experience without hearing them blared from car radios and other listening devices. Music gets me going like no other, but it's usually the non-lyrical stuff for me (weird, I know). :)

  6. I love the way you phrased layering writing over music. Beautiful writing needs rhythm, melody, and layers. Lovely post, Angela!

    1. Thanks, Martina. That layering and rhythm has always been a big attraction when it came to music.

  7. Music does evoke such strong emotions. I definitely felt the Linkin Park in Neverlove. I have yet to listen to music while writing, though - might have to try it:) Lovely post, Angela!

  8. holy hell i lurve LP so much! For me, they were the catalyst that drove me towards my new love of rock music (this was maybe 14 years ago?) and i haven't looked back since.

  9. Music always cheers me up and makes me feel like moving my feet. It's great to share music with friends or to listen to when you're alone. I can't imagine being without music.

    1. Oh my, I can't imagine being without music either. That would be terrible!

  10. Love this, Angela! And like Gwen, I also felt Linkin Park music interwoven throughout Neverlove. Some days I can listen to music while I write. Each piece demanding certain songs. Evanescence's Bring Me To Life evokes some major feelings in me lately. Not sure what'll come of it. We'll see.

    1. It can be interesting the way musical inspiration can make itself manifest :-)

  11. I actually haven't listened to a lot of their stuff. I'll have to give them a shot, especially knowing they inspired you!

    1. I wish I could say that everyone would LOVE LP, but that's like saying everyone would LOVE Neverlove. They're a group I'm glad I discovered and if someone else can enjoy a song or two by them, then YAY!

  12. Great verse Angela, and I agree about music. It is so essential at times and can soothe more than almost anything else! I haven't listened to a lot of Linkin Park -even thought I know who they are. I think I need to check them out more closely. :)

  13. Angela, I have to tell you, your picture just makes me smile every time I see it. :D

    Anyway, I'm right there with you on the Linkin Park--LOVE those guys. They give me great emotional, angsty ideas when I'm writing. Hubs, on the other hand, is always, "You LIKE this???" With a total confused expression on his face. LOL!

    So I guess not everyone "gets it." But I do! Great post~ <3
