As some of you may remember, I don't listen to music much. I even drive and write in silence. My life is noisy, and when I can have Quiet, I invite it in.
However, as I was reading a blogpost by Stephanie Perkins this morning, she said:
When I've decided on the tone of the scene I'm writing, I seek out music that reflects that tone, and I listen to those songs for hours, days, weeks on end.
Since she is about to be published, I figure it must work. I thought I'd give it a try because my manuscript needs some serious momentum.
But I don't know many songs, which is why I'm posting. Here are my upcoming "scene tones." Any suggestions on accompanying soundtrack would be very helpful.
Fear, Darkness, and Shadows
Reluctantly Falling in Love
Discovery, Power, and post-apocolyptic Happiness
Bring on the music!
