I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what inspires me and it seems like the answer is only found in things out of my control: an extreme situation, someone else’s provocation, death, unexpected disaster. Thus, I am now on the lookout, or in this case listen out, for material that moves me, without uprooting my entire emotional wellbeing. Music has been a popular muse for so many writers, why not make her this month’s theme:
Theme: Instrumental Inspiration– take an instrumental song and write lyrics to it or a story that features it. Post a video of the song with your piece!
Structure: Free Verse
