Today I’ve been mulling over choices for a playlist. My “What to listen to when I’m writing” playlist. Because here’s the thing: when I think of the scenes in my story, I can see my characters, hear their words and feel their emotions, but there’s still something missing…
Have you ever experienced a shiver along the back of your neck from an incredible melody? Listened to a singer’s voice that tugs at your heartstrings? Heard the words of a song and felt they were speaking directly to you? I live for moments like this and can’t go a day without music!
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”Plato
Which is why, when I sit down to write, I’m going to need a special playlist with music that will make every image and emotion stronger. Most of what I’ve found so far is classical music. Why? I’ve discovered I can’t listen to lyrics and write at the same time!
If you’re interested in taking a peek at my playlist, you can find it here on Spotify or follow the Spotify link at the bottom of the page! I’ll be adding to it and editing it as I go. I hope you like it!
