I'm a writer because I have stage fright.

What’s Your Favorite Music to Write To?

So I have quite a wide range of taste in music. I love the mellow chords of instrumental praise and the exciting guitar rifts of metal music. Sometimes, however, I love some peace and quiet.

What’s your favorite music to listen to? I’ve listed some of my favorite songs below and how they inspire me.

      I love Paramore! If you like Hollywood Undead, do you like bands that are somewhat similar like Linkin Park and Red?

        Not as much as H.U. but I do like me some Linkin Park from time to time. Haven’t heard of Red before. I might just have to check them out.
