I’m not sure if this pertains to every single author out there but I know that a lot of us have to write with some sort of music playing. It sparks feelings and emotions and we often throw a track on repeat so that we can hold on to that feeling while we write. Some of us have to listen to instrumental tracks, some of us have to listen to older music, big band, swing, (in my case) indie, pop, rock, and all of the other genres because they spark that feeling of lose, hate, lust, friendship or whatever other emotions we are trying to capture. I love finding the perfect track to get into Harper’s mindset for the different chapters, and as you can see if you go to the Playlist page I have a lot of tracks that help me.
What is your favorite genre to write to? What songs help you the most when it comes to your characters?
