My Writing Soundtrack

Not that long ago, my friend Jenny blogged about the music she listens to while writing. I, too, listen to music when I’m working. I tend to listen to music that has a common theme and could be used as a soundtrack to the story that I’m creating. I don’t stick within the confines of one genre. It tends to be spread out and all encompassing.

Currently, I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo. As I sit down and write each day, or at least attempt to, I turn on my music player and let the music carry me along, transforming my thoughts and feelings into coherent ideas that I can put on paper or computer screen. Sometimes it provides me with additional inspiration that I need in order to follow through with an epiphany that I’ve had.

Here’s a partial track list for my current work-in-progress. American Idol fans will undoubtedly notice that a vast majority of the songs are ones recorded by Idol contestants.
