Influences

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna make a couple posts here in the CW forum in an attempt to gather more people into this wonderful place..these posts will be more noninclusive so people who don't nessacarily write can join in the conversation, yet the posts will be 'creative writing based'

Okay, what do you all consider to be your biggest influences in writing style (I suppose that this post is a little more inclusive, but oh well :laughing:)

Personally I look up to three

1)Kurt Cobain (duh :doh: :) :laughing:

2)Michael Stipe :bow:

3)John Lennon :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

nessescarily (sp?)

necessarily

--------

I really don't rely on celebrity influence in writing, but one person I?m partial to is my father?s way, other than that, everything I write is based on what I learned throughout college.

I didn't get my first star rating until like 500 posts I think, but that makes sense, since I'm the unnoticeable mysterious guy covered by obscure clouds that don't do justice. Another 5 stars for you Lucy LooLoo!, I think I've rated just about everyone 5 stars on this site, twice.

My musical influences are:

~Progressive Rock~

Rush

Dream Theater

Genesis

Peter Gabriel

Styx

Yes

~Pop/Rock & Soft Rock~

Billy Joel

Phil Collins

Don Henley

U2

Journey

The Divine Comedy

My writing styles are so varied I have no specific influence in them, but the works of RA Salvatore are a big influence (he lives up the road from my high school in MA too)

Well for me I have musical influences and lyrical influences.

My Music Influences Are:

The Ataris

Smile Empty Soul

Staind

Basically anything rock that I like.

My lyrics come from my experiences, what I feel or what others around me feel. That's me.
