Today I pumped out a rough collection of words for a monthly prompt swap I'm doing. At one point, I put on some music (300: Rise of an Empire, by Junkie XL) to help focus, which made the words come out much more dramatic and eye-candyish. Previously, I'd been writing some settings sketches to use as indicators of the year passing and some character thumbnails. With the music, things took a turn toward Cirque du Soleil, which gave me the same thrill as I got RollerBlading Halloween night. I'm at the writing stage, so I don't know how much I'll edit out; but writing (when it works) should feel like good ritual.
