Music Writing Prompts: What ignites your writing fire?
Writing a story isn’t only contained to short stories and novels, it can also be told alongside music, it’s poetry and prose set to a tune. These words strung together can tell intimate and profound tales.
Most musicians, rappers and composers are also very good poets and writers. They see and feel written words as sounds and instinctively know how they should fit together with the music they produce. So this week I thought I’d give you a selection of videos of differing genres; some old, some new, but each tell a story.
Listen to one of the examples given below and be inspired or even research one of your own favorite musical pieces and write a piece of poetry for a new song. Perhaps you even play a musical instrument, set your poetry to music if you choose, just write your story :)
