Daily Quote


Writing to the head bangs of Megadeth or a noisy coffee shop is very doable for me. I have also written to the strains of classical music or in total silence.

I donโ€™t find I must have specific conditions to write. It would be a luxury and something that only occurred once in a blue moon which would make my writing much more sporadic. So, I adapt and write when and where I can.

What is your preference, music? Silence? The din of a coffee shop? Something else?

Maybe a little Megadeth?


Keep on writing.

  1. As I get older, (I just turned 74) I find that I need peace and quiet to either read, or compose. As Gina said, SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED takes no notice, and her coffee is more important than my upcoming blog-post…. ‘sigh’ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  2. I am always happy and thankful wherever and whenever of seed of inspiration chooses to blossom into a poem!! They have done research on what makes things fun and who is successful at it. They found the thing that made things fun was something that was able to capture and hold your attention and focus, and those that were the best at it could block out almost anything and everything. An example they gave was a surgeon in a six hour operation who turned around after completion to find ceiling tiles on the floor and he asked, “What happened?”. That’s concentration and focus. My preference if a choice is available is the Backside of the Night (the wee hours from 3 a.m. to sunrise) with a low light and silence! Another strange place of inspiration for me has been on long airplane trips! Weird! I listen to my Muse anytime she chooses to whisper to me!!!

    • We must remember to be thankful for those unexpected seeds of inspiration.

      I can relate to the surgeon, I have had people walk into my office and talk to me for several minutes before I realized they are there. Dragging myself out of my work is like extracting a tooth.

      Listen to you muse and if she likes the Backside of the Night I would make sure I was around for when she shows up. Keep on writing my friend.
