Music, Thoughts, and Moods


Hello readers! :)

I'm sure you know that music affects one's thoughts and mood. 

For instance, if you were feeling low and depressed and suddenly you started singing Jesus Wants me For a Sunbeam, you'd be likely to perk up and the spring would come back into your step. 

Different sorts of music are good for different things. Low, gentle, monotonous music is good for falling a sleep or going into a sort of trance-like state. Merry music makes you want to run about and dance. Merry music is also good to have playing while you do chores. 

Music is also good for writing. The music you're listening to also affects the sort of writing you'll do, so before you start it's good to choose a particular sort of music. If something like following someone at midnight is going on in your story, then a sort of tune like the Pink Panther tune would be ideal. Or, if your characters are going on a peaceful walk through a green field, then a sort of birdsong-like music would be good. Whatever's going on in your story, don't listen to music with lyrics as it won't help with the creative flow. 

Thank you for reading, and have a great day! :D

  1. We learned about this at schooL!

  2. We also learned (in another class) that foods can connect to memories!!

  3. I love to sing! It makes me happy.

  4. Luckily, I have an excuse, because I take chorus.

  5. FOOD connects to memories? I am going to eat some ramen noodles without seasoning and see what memories that triggers...
