Even though I don't, I know a lot of people rely on music heavily when writing, and it completely fascinates me. I want to hear about it!
Do you have a playlist for your WIP? Do you have certain songs you listen to when you are writing certain scenes? Songs that fit a specific character? If so, what's your process for finding the perfect music?
Or does it matter less what the song is, just that it's the right type of music?
For me, I write best in silence. If I can't have silence, Pandora and headphones save me. But I have to admit, Pandora works for me like white noise, not as a method of inspiration. Although sometimes I wonder if it's just because I haven't found the perfect music for what I'm writing yet.
How about you? Do you prefer silence, or do you have a hard time writing without music?
I write action / adventure books for middle grade readers, and I'm represented by Sara Crowe of Pippin Properties. I have two books released-- SKY JUMPERS and THE FORBIDDEN FLATS (both action / adventure, for ages 8 and up, with Random House Children's Books). I love happy kids even more than I love cookies, I make lists as often as I eat lunch, and I love having every light in the house on almost as much as I love writing.
