Finding my Playlist

So after several days of meditation (which BTW is about as close to an outline as this pantser gets), I just began putting pen to paper (well fingers to keyboard) for Light Chronicles Book #3. The only thing missing -- a playlist. I'm at a loss this time around.

I've been listening to hard rock for weeks which doesn't really fit this fantasy story at all. Putting together a playlist for my urban fantasy Bitter Envy was as simple as tuning to Octane on Sirius/XMRadio. It didn't matter much what was playing, as long as it was hard with an edge to it. I also listened to lots of Evanescence. I'd say they were the poster band for Bitter Envy. Now that I've decided to take a break from it and start on Light Chronicles, I'm stymied.

After weeks of subsisting on pulsating hard rock, I switched to Celtic to see if it inspired me. Well, it inspired me right to sleep. Did I mention, I write on my laptop and my desk is my bed? Funny thing is, I had a dream about my MC that finally settled where I needed to start this story. So the Celtic music does still inspire me even as it lulls me to sleep.

With any luck, I'll have a new playlist in place in a few days that provides motivation without the drowsy side effects.



And because everyone needs a dose of adorable one in a while, this is my Papillon, Kilala. Yes, she does realize just how cute she is. She likes to spend her days perched on the cat tree watching the outside world go by. No, I don't think she's aware that she's not a cat...

  1. Have you tried Loreena McKennitt's music. Her voice is haunting. Every single time I listened (before I went deaf) to her, her voice would take me away to an enchanted realm. (Hugs)Indigo

    1. I love Loreena McKennitt!! I'm sure she'll end up on my playlist this time too. 'Mummers Dance' is so hauntingly beautiful. Thanks for stopping by Indigo!
