Does your writing space seem too quiet? Or do you feel like you aren’t getting the emotions just right?
Well have you tried adding music yet? Movies use it to imply the emotions and tone in a scene, even if the characters don’t say a word.
Music is a powerful thing, so why not use it?
When it comes to adding music to your writing routine, ask yourself what emotion you want to convey and try to find a type of music to match it. If you want, try to think of it like a soundtrack for your book.
If you want something whimsical, try out intrumental or “new age” music.
Going into battle? Hard Rock and Metal may be the way to go for you.
Jazz is useful when you are working through calmer scenes.
Another idea, is try listening to similar music that your character is listening to. This comes in handy when you are trying to get their emotions down, and not just the overall tone of the scene.
So what kind of music do you listen to for your writing? Do you have a playlist or a Pandora/Spotify station? Let me know in the comments below!
