And now l bring you a playlist of songs I listen to that inspire me while I’m writing. In general I typically listen to classical and new age instrumental music to open my brain and get the creative juices flowing. However, when I want to focus on love scenes, fighting or the mindset of a villain, I change things up a bit.
I love listening to light and gentle music that won’t exactly put you to sleep.
When I’m writing about my characters doing the horizontal mambo and scenes leading up to it, I tend to lean towards funky rhythmic songs with smooth beats and sultry sounds.
When my characters are locked in battle or chewing each other out, I like to write with some adventurous music in the background.
When it comes to writing my villains I tend to lean towards the darker synthy sounds of New Wave/New Goth/Goth Core/Dark Wave or whatever the hell else they’re calling it now
