Whether it’s blogging or rapping, just let it flow

Whether it’s blogging or rapping, just let it flow

Hip-hop tends to be my music of choice, so when I took a second to think about how I write blogs, it came to me. Blogging is like rapping. You start a flow and keep it going.

Now I don't talk about it much, but I freestyle rap every once and a while. It has to be the right music and mood, but when I feel the flow coming I just let it out. Could be punk rock, pop, country or hip-hop, it doesn't matter. This same flow comes over me when I write. The difference is the trigger.

When I write my flow is triggered by my internal mood and thoughts. An idea or concept that I am interested in comes to mind and I start writing. When I freestyle I rely more on the external factors, like music and setting, before the words come out.

Since I brought up hip-hop music, I have to mention my favorite artists of late, Asher Roth and Atmosphere. Follow the links to download their free mixtapes below.
