While writing this latest draft of my book I immersed myself in images and music to help create my story. I have a board on Pinterest that I use when I want to visualize what a character or place might look like. Here's an example of what I have on that board. I also created a playlist in my iTunes Library that I turned on every time I sat down to work on the story.
Renee's Writing Playlist:
The Story by Brandi Carlile
Keep Breathing by Ingrid Michaelson
Comes and Goes (In Waves) by Greg Laswell
Losing My Religion by R.E.M.
Satellite Call by Sara Bareilles
Baker Baker by Tori Amos
Goodbye by Patty Griffin
Pendulum by Pearl Jam
Fear by OneRepublic
Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
How do you create a writing environment that helps you set the mood for your fiction? Is there specific music you listen to or a certain place you have to go to write?
