Doing my memoir writing homework took so long the other day for two reasons: I was too distracted and feeling down from receiving the third rejection letter from my MFA schools and because I didn’t have the right music to concentrate to!
I own classical music but I rarely listen to my many compilations…until now. I normally create a playlist in my iTunes for writing but then I become distracted and sing along to the songs. Mission, not accomplished.
I’m glad I have rediscovered my classical music. While completing my homework for the week, I was in the zone. I wrote from my soul and heart; all the hurt inside from my adolescence was spewing on the page. I tried to make the passage less of a hodgepodge of things but I think I want the piece to work that way. Seems like I’m on my way to writing pieces of my memoir. I never thought I’d be writing those words…ever!
Classical music is amazing. Thank goodness I have over ten discs (or more) of different artists. I can’t wait to rediscover my music and write more!
