On Playlists and Testy Muses...
Seems like most of the writers I know like to write to music. Their muses are inspired by songs and musical scores of all sorts, and they contrive very specific playlists to accompany each work in progress.
If I try that, my muse says "Shut the f*ck up!"
Here she is before one of our morning sessions:
Yeah, I know. She can be testy. And she likes it quiet when we work together.
Coincidentally, this is our topic over at The Debutante Ball this week. If you'd like to see me expound upon it more, pop on over here. There's also a really cute picture of an otter over there, if you need further inducement to click on that link. Adorable, I promise. You really otter check it out... (Sorry.) (Not really.)
If you like kittens better than otters, here:
So, do you like to listen to music when you write?
Or even when you read?
Do you make playlists?
Do you like otters?
Or do you prefer kittens?
Do you find it quirky and cute that I'm padding out this post with all these questions?
Or is it just annoying?
