So the question on your lips is....
is there really any other hobby beyond the books in my life?
Surprisingly, yes. (although, I'll admit, it still involves books in some way. LOL)
When I read or write, but especially when I read, I love listening to music and finding songs to suit.
It may be a song for a character, scene or even the whole essence of the story; I feel it.
Since I drive 30 min to work and back everyday, I tend to do this. I love my music, but LOVE picturing the current book I'm reading as well.
For example, I read my awesome author mate, +Katja Millay 's book The Sea Of Tranquillity and thought of Josh while I listened to Breakeven by The Script. (click on song for youtube song and lyrics)
Massive fan of Avett Brothers January Wedding even though there's a banjo in it. Thanks to my bud, Colleen Hoover.
And don't laugh or sigh, but for Twilight when it first come out and there was no soundtrack, I actually thought Taylor Swift Love Story was going to be on it. LOL The lyrics really didn't really reflect the story, but what it made me feel did. Customers would catch me singing it at work. I was addicted.
With my novels, for example, in The Moore Justice Trilogy- I have a playlist which inspires me and keeps me in the mood of the book. The songs and lyrics get right into my heart and I can feel my characters.
I guess when you put two pieces of of peoples souls (a persons music and another's words/book) in one thought, it bleeds right into you.
Check out some of the play list below to see what I'm getting at and maybe try it out yourself.
Matt Corby really gets to my soul
Anyhow, I think you get my point.
Try it with what you're reading now. Put some music on and see if any of them have you thinking of what your reading or writing.
I've decided that I'm going to give away a copy of my playlist cd or itunes that inspire me with The Moore Justice Trilogy to some lucky winners or winner + a playlist of a book of your choice +
a kindle copy of the first two novels from The Moore Justice Trilogy + a copy of my wingman Karly Blakemore-Mowle's latest book, Blindsided + but wait there's more...bahahahaha) a spot on my blog to post whatever you want.
