Tuesday’s Inspiration #3- Dustin O’Halloran

This is a breathtaking song composed by Dustin O’Halloran which is one of my favourites for writing. It was in fact this song that inspired me to write my post Silhouettes, and in turn I want to give you this song to inspire my fellow writers!

To gain the best effect, I’d suggest finding somewhere quiet and secluded to listen to this song. Plug in headphones, turn on HD, close your eyes and press play. The first way through, I don’t want you to do anything except listen to the music. Breathe in every chord, and once it is over, if you wish, repeat the process. Once you feel you are ready, grab a sheet and a pencil, and replay the song. Once it begins, I want you to take it in again, but this time write everything that comes to mind as it plays. Let your thoughts and feelings splash onto the page as the music washes over you. Replay it as many times as you want, and fill your page with every idea that springs to mind.

Once that is over, you can choose what you want from the notes you’ve made from the page, and you can create something. I’m sure your pieces will be as stunning as the music that flooded through your ears, and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Happy writing!
