To start with, review my post from the 15th in which I discuss music and writing then…

Choose one of your short stories, poems or a scene from a novel and add a description using a music metaphor or background to enrich the text. Please, think about sharing it in the comment section.

    I had meant to reply to this earlier, but the week has gotten away from me. Your suggestion helped me with this scene from a WIP. Thank you!

    They were married during a blizzard so thick that if the priest and attendants had not had the foresight to arrive the previous evening, there would have been no wedding on January 16th, 1918. Hattie’s relief filled the house when, just after supper, Father O’Brien entered their door covered from his black felt hat to his boots in snow, his horses nearly spent with the effort fighting the wind, his small, open buggy filled with snow. Her brother and sister had come in their own buggy that morning, before the blowing and drifting was so bad, but they, too, required hot water and towels and a seat by the fire before they were able to engage in proper conversation.
    With the guests tucked away in the spare beds and the horses fed and sheltered, Hattie lay awake most of the night, listening to the escalating blizzard. The wind trumpeted around and through the house’s wooden frame. Snow crashed like cymbals against the windows. The world was proclaiming that tomorrow she would be not Miss Harriet Elizabeth Whiting, but Mrs. William John Whitcher, the daughter of Edward Lemoyne Whiting, Sr. and Mary Herman Whiting, Will’s parents being George Alexander Whitcher and Betsy White Jackson Whitcher. The thought pleased her to no end.
