Meet Us At The Crossroads Blog Tour - Day 6

If you went back to working in theatre, what would you want to do?

I love acting. I love creating a characters and playing a role, telling a story, trying to make the audience connect with the character and root for her. I get to do the same thing as writer, but I don’t get to dress up in a costume. On the flip side, however, I don’t have to stay on a diet.

Does music influence your writing? If so, how?

I listen to either classical music or movie soundtracks while I work. I lot of people can write to music with lyrics, but I have a hard time ignoring voices. Instrumental, though, sort of blends into the background and drowns out other distractions. Usually I’ll have one or two CDs or playlists that I’ll keep on repeat--they’re different for every book. It sets the mood, but it also seems to be a subliminal cue to my brain that it’s time to work. If I’m having trouble focusing, one of my familiar mixes will put me right into the zone.

I have a writing track with words that plays over and over and because it does, I don't really listen to the words. It helps me tune out all the other distractions around me.


It's funny that so many writers do so many different things. Some have complete silence, some just music, some the t.v.
