Writing Tip #7: Listen to Music

You know that waiting for inspiration to write is silly–but there is a way to get inspiration without procrastinating.  Make a playlist of music that fits the tone of your story, and listen to it while writing (or while doing a project or chore before your writing session).  It can feel like a soundtrack to a movie of your story, and can jump start your imagination for scenes and settings.  At the very least, it can get you in the mood to sit down and work on your book!
