31-Days-of-NaNoPrepMo-by-Katrina-OstranderDay 15: What will you listen to while you’re writing?

Writing habits. We’re almost halfway there! Now for something a little bit easier and more fun for today’s prompt. A lot of writers use soundtracks to get them in the writing mood and inspired to write a particular scene or character. You can even use a specific track to signal to your brain that it’s time to start writing (use the Pavlovian response for good!).

Action Plan: Either start organizing some playlists on iTunes or Youtube account, or grab a free account on Spotify or Pandora. What soundtracks or artists do you want to put on your novel playlist? Does your character have a mix tape? Are there certain songs that match the essential scenes you’ve identified so far? Have some fun, and if any of the songs inspire you to add some details to your current novel notes, do so!
