Right now (not at this very moment, because, well, I’m writing this blog post) I am writing a high fantasy novel and fighting the never-ending battle for the keyboard with The Cat (that is a war that is raging on as I type this.) For every battle, there must be strategy, strength, stealth, an appropriate playlist!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: music makes the mood or breaks the mood. The most appropriate songs for my work-in-progress are:
- Medicate or Stimulate (yes, I realize it’s about drug use, but my main character is in a mental institution and believes he is hallucinating half the time because freaky things are happening.)
- Yellow Flicker Beat (appropriate in that he’s somewhat of an outcast at the beginning of the book. Doesn’t quite have his place yet.)
The LEAST appropriate songs for my WIP’s playlist are:
- Merry Happy (Hahahahahahahahha!)
- Kiss From a Rose (I’m keeping it because I’m a 90s girl at heart and love the song to pieces.)
And Space Oddity is in there because, come on, I need me some Bowie. Still sad 😦
Hope all’s well out there IRL.
