Hello One And All,
Welcome to Thursday's post! Just one more day then...
IT'S FRIDAY :-)
So...question for you:
What's your ultimate writing set up? What is it that helps you write the best?
Is it a big comfy chair? Your favorite songs in the background? Background conversation? Chocolate? Coffee?
Whatever it is, have it when you write. It's something I reminded myself of while I was listening to a song that I listened to a lot while writing Surreal (it was Chris De Burgh's "Missing You" by the way).
I almost never listen to music while writing... however I remember when writing Surreal, I listened to songs by Chris De Burgh, Ramones, Lowen & Navarro, REM, Kci & Jo-Jo, Bonnie Taylor, Savage Garden, Neil Diamond, Righteous Brothers, Paul Anka, Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Optional 2, They Might Be Giants, "Trumpet Voluntary" by Henry Purcell Clark.
That music helped put me in the right mood to write Surreal.
So I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I should go back to listening to music that puts me in the right mood for whatever story I'm writing.
Give yourself a break...set yourself up to be the right mood for whatever story you're telling. What you're writing...if there's a particular music that suits the mood of the story, put it on and let yourself go...if you can't write with music in the background, figure out what helps you be "in the zone" so you can write, write, write.
Have A Tremendous Thursday!
