The Sound Of Music

Every writer is different.
We are a group of zany, anti-social, desperate, publishing-hungry,
book-a-holics. Those differences extend to how we are inspired. The age old
(okay, not really. But since tapes became available to the general population)

Do you listen to music when you
write?…I do!I make a playlist for a WIP
and then I listen to it. Constantly. The songs help me get in the mood
for certain scenes, or just the novel in general. The music and words inspire me
in various ways. I love it!
For my upcoming novel, which I plan to slave over for NaNoWriMo, I have a playlist already laid out. And, per my usual, I’ve been listening to it constantly. In case your looking for some portable inspiration of your own, my playlist is below.
Wild One by Faith Hill

Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift
Rules by Jaymee Dee  Demons by Imagine Dragons Radioactive by Imagine Dragons Hypocrates by Marina & The Diamonds Lonely Hearts Club by Marina & The Diamonds

Feel Goood, Do You?

Self-Esteem People have varying levels of confidence in themselves. A perfect metaphor of this is high school and the cliques that undoubtedly form. I was one of the quiet, but nice to everyone types. And my self-esteem was usually pretty low. It’s funny, but sometimes when I’m with people my own age (or younger) the old low self-esteem hits again.

Then I remind myself.  Emily, you’re 20 years old. You make over $20,000 a year. You have an Associates of Science degree and almost a Bachelors. You know so much about the writing world, it’s boderline obsessive. Knock it off with the self-esteem issues! This even happens to me in the writing-world. A world I love. In fact, right now I’m reading Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare… and I feel like I need to go dig a hole and bury myself (and my writings) in it. Compared to her character depth, world-building, and twisting plot–I. Suck. ‘Ello, low self-esteem. There you are again!

But you know what always helps low self-esteem?  Looking and feeling good.  I’ve found it even helps when writing.  When I have a bad hair day or am wearing a baggy t-shirt and worn-too-many-times sweatpants, my attitude is effected. And so is my writing. I’m not saying put on your date night make up and party dress to pen down a few words. But exercising, eating well, and wearing comfortably chic clothing will give you a totally different attitude. Oh, and of course when you undoubtedly run into that ex or old nemesis at the grocery store, you won’t look like the queen of frumpy-ville and have to hide behind a watermelon cart.

…Yes, I’ve done this.
