I was thinking that, too. And I know my dad -- it's not just a ploy. Although that may be a part of it, lol.

Douple post, but, again, it's been long enough.

I think I'm going to email my dad a couple of chapters of tSotD a week this summer, so he can work on a song. I'd just give him the whole thing before I leave, but I think doing it a little bit at a time works better. It would take him forever to get to it otherwise -- he works a lot.

I'm actually sort of excited. He said he would write several songs if I wanted, and I could have a whole soundtrack. He heard me talking about Kaleb Nation and how Kaleb wrote the entire soundtrack for Bran Hambric. So Dad said he'd do that for me if I wanted.

I just can't refuse the offer, y'know?

That's excellent, Novel! I wish I had someone semi-musical in my family. And it'll be cool to see what inspires him and what he got out of your novel by hearing the music.

All:

Oh, man, I don't know what to say. The music that has "inspired" what I write is all classical stuff: Russian romantics and Shostakovich(mostly for the battle scenes, I think), this, despite the fact that what I'm writing is a Great Medieval Science Fiction Masterpiece!

Yeah, that's what finally convinced me! I know what *I* think about the novel and I know what *I* take out of it (since, I, y'know, wrote it), but I've got no clue what he'll take out of it. He reads a lot of fantasy, so he'll probably be into it. Or, at least, I hope so.

And the thing is, he's a metal musician. I'm reaaaaaaaaaally interested to see what kind of songs he does. Very Happy

Question: If you listen to music as you write, does the music have to match what you're writing? That is, if you're writing angry scenes, do you need louder music, or does happy stuff work just as well? If you're writing happy bits, do you need nice music, or is Breaking Benjamin fine too?

I can listen to anything while I'm writing, but I try to make it reflect the scene I'm working on. Sometimes I need the perfect song to go with the mood of the scene--for example, when I was writing a scene in The Enigma that takes place in Hell, I raided my dad's CDs and listened to a lot of Slayer.

So, yeah. I like to make it all fit, although I don't have to.

Lately I've been avoiding story-tailored playlists, because I tend to just keep adding to them and adding to them and adding to them based on what music I currently love/listen to a lot. My new thing is playlists tailored to a specific mood. That way I don't have to worry so much about how the lyrics relate to the story, and I can use the playlists for everything I write. It's working out pretty well. Razz

Daeonica - Yeah, it is. This song isn't on the BSG soundtrack as its an original, but i recommend googling Kara Remembers and BSG version of the watchtower.

Such a nerd i know, but that series is just amazing and the music is huge part of it

I can only write to music if it's something that's not overly distracting. I almost exclusively write to The Lord of the Rings soundtrack. I got in the habit when I was writing my Master's Thesis and found that the music from that soundtrack was perfect--interesting, inspiring and not distracting (especially when you've already heard the songs a million times). I have a playlist which starts with a Rob Thomas song, which perfectly fits one of the scenes from my WIP, then the rest of it is just the 3 LOTR soundtracks. Works for me!
