I have a question for all of you songwriters out there. Do you do anything in particular concerning music you listen to when you're attempting to write? Or do you not have 'attempts' per se, and stuff just randomly comes to you? I note that some prominent writers (Swano in particular) have a tendency to not listen to any music at all when they're writing; they think it interferes. On the other hand, others (Hetfield said he does this) surround themselves with as diverse music as possible. I suppose the argument could be made to also listen to the sort of music you want to write. And sometimes for me, music randomly pops into my head through dreams and randomosity like that. I usually find attempting to unite a few similar ideas works pretty well. What's your creative process like, chumalums?
