Mood Music: Romance Scenes
My repertoire of snappy blog posts is running dry. Has been running dry, actually, since mid-summer. Alas, inspiration is not what it used to be.
Thus I shall venture into a widely discussed topic: music. We are all well aware that music and writing often go hand-in-hand. Whether it helps you get in the mood to write a particular scene or you let it play silently in the background while you work, music is a good source of instant inspiration. The espresso double shot of the creativity world, if you will.
In that vein of thought, I hereby dub this blog post the first in the Mood Music series. What songs do you play to set the mood for writing romantic scenes? Is there a certain song that will always kick-start your romantic juices (um...don't think about that for too long. It may get dirty.), or is there a combination that's different for each story?
I usually choose a variety of songs for each story, but there is one song that will always put me in that romantic frame of mind:
This just made me realize that most of my story couples have tragic ends. Hm.
So, fire away! Let's get those romantic juices flowing! (Okay, that does just sound dirty...)
