Yesterday I was trying to look for the perfect song while writing the scene in my chapter 11. I ended up not writing anything because I spent all night looking for the perfect song. And the thing is I have a writing play list with already 104 songs.
That might seem crazy . I know . But sometimes when I’m writing I write with music because sometimes the music gives off the very vibe I ‘m writing about in the scene at the moment .
I try to find a song for each character , each scene and each chapter.
That takes a while. Sometimes I find music for an individual action and it is great.
I ‘m in the moment and I am able to write for a very long time.
But then of course there is those moments where I need silence to write.
I make sure the music fits the moods and themes of my novel. So since my novel is about werewolves in a post-apocalyptic world I have some pretty dark music. But also some light music moments because there is a glimpse of romance in my novel( note there is only glimpses of romance)
Here is 5 songs from my playlist for my novel so far .
