That is, if you are inspired by any one particular song lyric. I listen to a lot of different types of music (only rarely when I'm actually writing), and every now and then, there will be a short part that really makes me want to write something...anything really.

I'll give you an example, from "The Wolves" by David Usher
Oh, don't run, these wolves will chase you down.

Everytime I hear this song (or actually, just that part), I just wanna write something. I have a whole list of several lyrics that have the same effect.

Does that ever happen to anyone else?

Anything that brings to mind a visual will inspire my mind to write. Days of the Future Passed by the Moody Blues, in its entirety, will stir the muse in an almost mystical way.

The following lyric in Loreena Mckennett's, The Mummer's Dance, captivates my imagination each and every time I hear it, so I will very much say it is inspiring:

Who will go down to those shady groves
And summon the shadows there


It's like, I really want to know what is going on in those shady groves, and then I begin to write.
I really want to know to! And I think that is exactly it; you hear something that you really connect with, and you want to find out what's going on there.
