The Power of the Playlist: Starting Fires

 

untitled design (5)

There’s a certain mindset you just have to be in (clears throat) to write romance. Sometimes you’re not in that space, mentally or emotionally. Thank goodness that music has the effect it does on us.

Sometimes all it takes is a little spark to start the fire.

Behold, the match.

The Power of the Playlist

visit https___ldbloodworth.com for moreI have mentioned before how much I love a good playlist. When I’m writing, sometimes my moods don’t match the type of emotion or imagery that I am trying to evoke and so I have learned to depend on music to help me “feel it”.  I came across this Lynchian playlist on Google Play Music and it does everything you would expect.

A haunting energy provides visions of pavement ribbons lacing their way through fog enveloped forests. The creep factor is upped by the sweet feminine voices, barely audible at times, lilting over romanticized melodies.

It’s all SO Twin Peaks. (sigh)

Here’s the Lynchian Playlist. Enjoy. Watch out for the owls.
