I write to music. I love music. I wish I was a musician, a singer, or a music journalist. I’m not any of those things: I can’t carry a tune, I haven’t the patience or talent to learn an instrument, and I get a headache with even one glass of wine.
So I content myself by being an audience, and when I write, I compose a songlist of songs in the theme of the novel I’m writing. Sometimes it has terms in it, sometimes the full theme, sometimes, it’s just the music that gets my fingers going.
I thought you might enjoy scanning the lists I created for various novels.
