Another musical guest post

I'm really excited to be featured on Roz Morris's Undercover Soundtrack today. It's a fantastic series looking at how music has influenced the way a writer approaches their novel.

Being different, and not the author of a published novel yet, my post features the songs that inspired my short stories - each of my books gets a mention, so they don't feel left out.

I hope you enjoy reading more about me. I suggest making yourself a hot chocolate to drink while you read it, that's what I'm going to do!

  1. And of course it would fall on the day when I'm on a computer without speakers. (Mine is in the process of blowing up. *sigh*) Still, I'm headed over to check it out.

    1. I usually read posts with music and/or video in a room where other people will be disturbed and have to bookmark it to come back to when I'm alone.

      I hope your computer is repairable.

    2. I replied on the other post too, Hilary, but I do agree Simple Song has a very strange video.

    1. We'll have to meet up in a different state then - I've been drinking hot chocolate right the way through the summer, and it was pretty warm here this year :-)

  4. Hot chocolate does go well with reading. I find it interesting when writers find music to go with their stories. I tend to get stuck listening to the same thing over and over for months, though (currently Hamiliton: the American Musical). I'd have a hard time thinking of music to go with my writing.

    1. I do the same, listen to the same thing over and over. It's just so much easier to press play again rather than search for something new.

  5. I never really thought about how music can inspire short stories, but you're right; they can give writers ideas, especially if you think about it, a lot of songs are stories themselves. That is, in a way, they're stories set to music.

    1. Exactly. Sometimes it's not even the lyrics that give rise to the idea, but the music.

    1. Thanks Sandra. I couldn't find you on Twitter, I tried to follow you, but I couldn't work out which one was you!

  8. HI Annalisa. I don't write to music. I like it quiet, but in a writing class once we had to write to music and I'm amazed at the difference the tracks made to our approach to the same emotion.

    1. Music can be very powerful in that respect, what an interesting challenge.

  12. Wash clothes with cold water, as much as you can. Almost ninety percent of the energy used by a washing machine comes from heating the water for a warm or hot cycle. If your laundry detergent is a high quality brand, the use of cold water won't affect the cleanliness of your clothing. Also, make sure your load is a full one so you do not waste energy washing several small loads.hanumaan Bhajan
