My writing soundtrack
I have to confess that I am somewhat addicted to music. I like to listen to it anytime of the day and I like it loud because then I can feel it too. So, I suppose it only makes sense that I need to have music playing when I write. During my weekday 5 – 7am sessions I listen to it through ear phones but when I write later on in the day on weekends I just play it on the stereo. Much to my husband’s delight. Not.
I wrote Without Alice – the making of a man while listening to music by Duffy, Morcheeba and Faithless. I have put links in for you to get an idea of what the music is all about. For those of you who have read Without Alice I think you will understand exactly why I was listening to songs by those musicians and for those of you who haven’t read my debut novel yet I hope it isn’t too long before you do decide to. Thank you so much to everyone who has reviewed Without Alice and posted them on your feedback on Amazon, Goodreads, your blogs, Twitter and Facebook. I really appreciate your feedback.
The sound track for my novel in progress – Love and Other Lies – has been even more eclelctic. Newton Faulkner, John Denver, Lonestar, Maroon 5, Jessie J, Dizzie Rascal ft Florence, Nancy Sinatra and Eliza Doolittle.
The non -fiction book I am working on Butterfly Babies – modern midwifery is more than just a delivery service has been written to a soundtrack of energising, enriching, powerful music. Gregorian monks chant, Enigma, Leftism,London Beat, Doctor and the Medics, Van Morrison, Moby and Late Night Alumni.
