Road Trip Wednesday #7: Your WIP Set to Music

Welcome to our seventh Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival", where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing or reading-related question and answer it in on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

You're more than welcome to participate! Just answer the question/topic on your own blog, and leave a link to it in the comments.



Topic #7: What are the songs that represent/influence your WIP(s)?

Kristin Miller: More often it’s not the whole story, but the individual scenes that work with particular songs . . .

Amanda Hannah: It can bring on the right mood, whether it be somber, cheerful, exciting, or reflective . . .

Kristin Otts: I honestly don't believe I'd be a writer if I wasn't a music-lover first . . .

Kaitlin Ward: I also find that if I try to associate things in my WIPs with music while I'm writing . . .

Kirsten Hubbard: Others painstakingly choose soundtracks for every WIP, song by song, shifting and manipulating. . .

  2. Yes. Love this question. I like how everyone seems to be all over the map with it, too, although I'm more in the "Must. Have. Music" camp than anything else.

  5. I'm a bit late joining in on all this, but I decided to get in on the fun too :D

    I'm a must have music type. For my last wip it was rock and pop, the louder the better.

    Weirdly, this time it's classical, opera and Gypsy music. Here's my post.
