As a musician who once played piano on a regular basis, I tend not to write to music. I’m so focused on the rhythm of my writing that adding music in the background only distracts me.
However, I find music can be highly motivational. As such, it’s an important part of my life. If I feel discouraged or blocked, listening to the right music can perk me up and keep me going, no matter what.
Music has also wormed its way into my fiction. Sam McRae has her own favorite songs, which I mention from time to time in my books.
Ironically, this is not one of them. But it makes a nice tune to start the week off with!
