Harnessing the power of music to write: What’s on your novel’s soundtrack?

7

So, like many writers, I create soundtracks for my WIPs. Specific songs have an amazing power to change my psychological mindset and help me get into the emotional mood of a scene. Here are a few I’ve been using to harness writing brainpower for Rafa & Rose. which I’m writing collaboratively with a friend..

Getting into the setting:

Scenes that deal with Rose’s life issues:

Scenes involving Rafa’s family:

The growing relationship between the main characters:

Romance scenes from Rafa’s perspective:

Romance scenes from Rose’s perspective:

Just a few samples 😛 Haha putting all these songs in a blog post like this reminds me, wow, my friend and I are playing with very different worlds here.

Writer friends, what songs are in your WIP’s soundtrack?
