So this week has been a lot waiting. Waiting for my edits to be ready, waiting for my cover art, even waiting for the words to come to me for book two (because it’s NaNo and if I can’t hit my word count MY LIFE IS OVER AhAHHAHAhaha…anyway). So, what helps ease all of the anxiety of waiting?
Here is a playlist of the songs I’ve listened to the most this last week.
Starving – Hailee Steinfeld
I really love this song right now. It speaks to that romantic in me and helps me to remember what’s going on in my characters’ brains sometimes.
2. Bombastic – Bonnie McKee
This is the song that helps get my brain awake in the morning! It’s so fun and upbeat, I love to blast it in my car when I’m on my way to do today’s work with my sister.
3. Can’t Stop Dancing – Becky G
I dance to this song. I probably have no business dancing, so I do it when I’m sure no one is around. The cats look at me like I’m crazy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
4. Cold Water – Justin Beiber
This video leaves me with so many questions. Why do they dance the same dance the whole video? Why is every scene in a place that nobody would dance in? Why?? Anyway, really like the song, too.
5. Monody – The Fat Rat
Out of all the videos in this list, this is my absolute favorite! Best for last, right? The first thing that drew me to this was the image. I love this picture. It really speaks to me about adventure and what a big world is out there. So does the song. If there was a song I would put to an adventure montage, this would be it. I can listen to this for hours, over and over, and it always rejuvenates that little part of me that longs to write about my characters adventures.
So that’s my list! What kind of music do you guys enjoy?
