Music Playlist Saturdays

Music is a huge part of my creative process, whether it is grooving in the car thinking up new ideas or playing the same songs over and over to catch a mood for a particular scene. Sometimes I obsess on a song for weeks at a time. With time being such a precious commodity, music shortcuts the time for me to get in “the writing zone.”

I’ll be updating my playlist on Saturdays.

Obsessing on “Sometime Around Midnight” by The Airborne Toxic Event
“Portions for Foxes” for Rilo Kiley is in my playlist
Just discovered “Closer” by Tegan and Sara

All of these songs seem to be about the chemistry between two people. I’m working on the sides of the love triangle in The Dreamless City. It’s been tougher than I anticipated because the sides don’t seem to balance out. I may need to reorder some scenes so that you don’t get a whole streak of Guy A then lose him for days while the focus is on Guy B. I think aa alternating approach may help the story. Not going to fret too much about what is on paper so far. Just making notes to mix it up once the revising starts.
