The other day while starting chapter one of the new book, I couldn't think of anything to listen to and was having trouble with writing. That is, until this song by Chris Young came on and it hit me. This is how my hero is feeling.
Crazy thing is, my character's name is Chris as well, but I'm thinking of changing his name. Now he's not an alcoholic, yet this song just screams his character how he has bottled up his feelings for the heroine It's a reunion story and a lot of painful stuff they're going to have to get through for their happy ending.
Then this song came on and it's on the nose how she feels about him even though she doesn't want to admit it. She's still pissed at him and rightly so, but she's still in love with him even though at first she doesn't want to admit it. The only question is, can she get over him blaming her for the miscarriage.
So, do you have to have music playing while writing or does it need to be silent? I'm looking for some new songs to add to this playlist. Any suggestions?
