I’m a writer, but music plays a huge role in my life. And because I write about the Caribbean, it stands to reason that I would be a fan of Jimmy Buffett. And those of you of like mind will certainly get the not so subtle reference to one of the man's songs in the title of my blog. But I get the impression he’s not the suing type so we’ll let it ride for now….
I wonder if other writers work the same way. That is, turn on iTunes and listen while they write. The image of the solitary writer at his desk with the ticking grandfather clock the only sound in the room is not how this writer writes. I don’t like chaos – but silence is deafening to me. Odd as it might sound, I can’t hear anything else but the silence. So how do you write? Are you the ticking grandfather clock type? Or perhaps you too like a little Caribbean soul.
