I like to listen to jazz, chill, or classical music when I write. It’s not that I can’t take the silence. Sometimes I do.

Music stimulates creativity. I believe it activates parts of your brain that silence just can’t. And since it’s emotional, it’s appealing.

The magic comes when we make our words sing as beautifully as the music we hear when we write them.

Thanks for this, Jewel! It was a pure joy to read.
