True story: there’s something weird about the way I write. Many of you know, I’m kind of a freak about music. See, I make my own soundtracks and listen to them (like crazy) while I’m writing. This isn’t normal. It’s not advised in most circles.
Making a soundtrack for inspiration is nothing new, even Stephanie Meyers did it while writing the Twilight series. Most of my author friends do it too. But they listen to them while they’re plotting or relaxing.
I listen while I’m writing. There are certain songs for certain scenes and they get played over and over and over again. I listen to my manuscript soundtrack the entire time I plot, write, and the whole time I’m not writing. I make CD’s and play them on my drive to work (which is an hour each way) the entire duration for my work on a certain manuscript. It’s kind of nuts.
All this to say, I’ve decided to share my playlists on this website! My taste in music is all over the place. I hope you enjoy!
Yeah…I’m discerning in my listening tastes….sometimes.
