Writing Inspiration #2 – Music

Lin-Manuel Miranda in the title role of the musical "Hamilton" at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York.

Like with visual art, there are many ways which music can inspire you when you write.

It can set you in the correct mood or mindset. Or maybe the lyrics of a song can set your mind on an idea.


But for me the song below brings a particularly inspiring feeling to my heart. Shame!


If I need to shame myself into putting down a video-game to actually get some writing done, I listen to the song ‘Non Stop’ from ‘Hamilton: The Musical’.

If Hamilton did all that, there is no excuse for me to not continue working on my script or whatever else I have on my schedule.

I obviously get that he was a workaholic, but there is not a huge chance that I will reach those depths. For now; the song can help me shake myself out of my laziness, pumped to write something!


What songs inspire you?
