As I have posted before, I am not a big writer to music. I don’t listen to it while I write, much preferring silence or background general noise. Music is far too distracting. I don’t usually use it to get in a ‘zone’. However, I have been starting to that more. Rather than songs just sparking off ideas with their lyrics, I am starting to use music before I write to evoke a mood or feeling.
I have therefore been looking up songs with a particular theme. I have an idea for a WIP – still an idea, so nothing formed – which involves obsessive sort of love, perhaps bordering on stalking. So I have been (cheerily) googling songs on that theme.
