Ernest Hemingway once said “write drunk, edit sober.” I find that in order to really write passionately sometimes this old adage is true, but also requires music in the background. Writing for me is like a dance, or great sex. Slow, methodical, pounding out words with music that makes me at once happy and sad. But the music is just sweet background, almost white noise that keeps me in the moment and focused on the words that I need to find to evoke the emotion necessary to convey my message.
