Lacking Singing Talent, Here’s Why I Won’t Stop – Daily Quote

Trust me, you never want to hear me singing. The phrase ‘can’t carry a tune in a bucket applies.’ While I love music, the only time I allow myself to sing and dance is while I do my chores. I have a strict prerequisite of an empty house, and the volume cranked to ear-splitting decibels. I accomplish my work at a breakneck pace and creativity spurs me to return to my desk.

My real joy is composing as I listen to my favorite tunes. The rhythms keep words flowing and my fingers typing. It is very productive and dreamy. Though in my daydreams, instead of riding on a garbage truck, I prefer flying through town on a fire engine destined to save a cat from a tree.

Does your writing let your voice sing?

  1. Singing when no one is around is such a great feeling. No one to judge you (good or bad), and you can just be free. That’s how writing feels sometimes. What is your favorite music to listen to while you write?

    • You are so right Samuelle. I love that feeling. My music selection varies, anything from classical to alternative to pop. It all depends on my mood. What music inspires your writing?
