A lot of writers talk about the music they listen to while they're writing. I can't listen to anything while I'm writing - I need to have it completely quiet. Seriously, I don't even like to write when anyone is conscious in the house.
But I do listen to a lot of music to get in the mood to write. Certain songs just tug at something and put me right in the place I need to be for a certain scene or chapter. These are a couple of the songs that I listened to over and over (and over) while writing my new paranormal romance (we do have a title but I didn't ask Agent E if I was allowed to share it yet):
1. The Script - Break Even (I listened to this so much that for awhile the book was called Barely Breathing. It's not anymore, but I still love this song.)
2. The Style Council - You're the Best Thing (Mmm. Paul Weller. Is there anything else to say?)
3. Everything But The Girl - Missing (Seeing Tracy live is practically a spiritual experience for me. Plus, in this live version we've got go go dancers!)
4. Neon Trees - Animal (Don't know why this one worked, but it did.)
On this date: In 1916, Roald Dahl is born.
