I love music. I love writing. Sometimes the two don’t mix together. I often have a hard time focusing on what I’m writing if there’s a catchy song going on in the background.
But during my writing process the last week, I found that the easiest way to get myself motivated and engaged in the story I was creating was to make a playlist. I wanted the songs to illustrate the emotions and feelings I was trying to write into the story.
So, I thought I’d share that playlist with you. Whenever I really needed an emotional scene, I found the right Andrew Belle song to listen to on repeat. That album really got me inspired for some of the tougher scenes.
I even made playlists catered to each character I was writing which was so much fun. It was kind of like a music board for ideas and emotions to build into my characters.
