Playlists…

Good Monday morning. How many of you have a music playlist that is your go to when writing, cleaning, working, or whatever you are doing? Many writers have certain playlists for each kind of scene that are working on. Some people have playlists they play when cleaning the house and others use certain songs when just sitting around, doing nothing at all.

Now, as for me, I have quite an eclectic playlist assortment. If I’m writing a sweet part, I love to listen to soft classical piano music. Although if I’m into a more dramatic part, I love something darker and heavier. I rotate between Evanescence, Journey, Marinas Trench and Mozart. I told you it’s out there. As a writer, I thrive on what’s happening around me. Sounds can affect me in a way that changes the attitude of my character or even the mood of a scene.

So, what’s your playlist like? Do you change with the scenes?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Wednesday Wisdom – Be Yourself!

It’s Wednesday, we’re halfway to the weekend! Today I want to talk about something that affects most writers. What is that, you might ask. Well, it’s being yourself in your writing. What? Go against the grain? Yes!

As writers, we have our own style and if you didn’t know it, our own brains. When a story comes to us, it’s from us, not what current trends dictate. We need to stay true to what we know and love. If you do that, then it will show in your writing. But if you try to write to make the trends happy, it won’t be from your heart. So, be yourself in your writing.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
