When I think about Honey Creek, many images fill my thoughts. Country, home, easy living, corn fields, green grass, and crystal blue lake. Sitting down to write a Honey Creek story, I often find I need something to put me in the HC mood. My best solution. Music.
I'm one of those people who enjoy listening to music when they write and often the right type of music makes the writing flow. (He He!)
When I'm driving in the car and I hear a song that transport me to middle Ohio, I usually toss my phone to my daughter so she can write down the band name and song.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
The Band Perry: All Your Life
Jason Aldeen: Dirt Road Anthem
Taylor Swift: White Horse; Our Song; Story of Us (I write YA *shrugs*)
Adele: Some One Like You (I think I just like this song and the soulfulness makes me think about falling in and out of love)
Carrie Underwood: All-American Girl
Brad Paisley: Mud on the Tires (cracks me up)
When you hear a certain song, what do you think of? Does the first notes or lyrics automatically make you think of a movie or book? If so what song? And if you've read Bloom by Julie Anne Lindsey, what songs would you make as the books soundtrack? I'm thinking something by Miranda Lambert.
