The Music That Moves Me

There’s something about music that has the power to inspire in a way that almostmon_Mon no other creative endeavor does. As a writer, music can be used both to inspire creatively or as a backdrop for a certain mood that you’re trying to create within your story. So for this week’s #MiscellaneousMonday, in what I hope will become something of a recurring segment, I thought I would discuss the music that’s moving me this week.
