December 29, 2014 by Nathaniel Tower

Most writers love music. Whether you listen to music while you write or prefer complete silence, music likely has an influence on your writing.

Here is what some of your favorite albums from 2014 say about you as a writer:

 

Pink Floyd – The Endless River

You rehash your old ideas rather than create new ones.

 

Aphex Twin – Syro

Your writing is drawn out and often plods along until it gets somewhere.

 

Flying Lotus – You’re Dead!

You don’t like to use complete sentences, and that is so experimental.

 

Run the Jewels – Run the Jewels 2

You’re just as likely to be shitting on other writers as you are to be writing something.

 

Beck – Morning Phase

You’re tired of writing, but you are going to keep doing it.

 

Future Islands – Singles

You’re going to keep writing the exact same way and wait for something big to happen.

 

Thom Yorke – Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes

You know your writing is mediocre, so you hide it behind gimmicks.

 

Taylor Swift – 1989

You’ll write anything if it sells.

 

St. Vincent – St. Vincent

Your writing is just eccentric enough to make people think you are doing something really different and edgy.

 

The Black Keys – Turn Blue

You try to write exactly like Hemingway or Faulkner or Kerouac or someone, but you’re convinced your writing is original and way better than everyone else.

 

Foo Fighters – Sonic Highways

You don’t waste your time with rough drafts. Whatever you get down on paper the first time around is what you send to the publishers.

 

The Afghan Whigs – Do to the Beast

You’ve been writing for a while but want to prove you are still a bad ass.

 

Sun Kil Moon – Benji

Your writing is, like, so literary.

 

Royal Blood – Royal Blood

You skip all those descriptive parts ’cause you don’t think you need it.

 

Smashing Pumpkins – Monuments to an Elegy

You don’t give a shit about reviewers or rejections. You know you’re the best damn writer in the world.
