I usually listen to music when I write. Nothing that has lyrics, just pieces of music. I try and pick music which suits the situation I am writing about. For instance, if I am writing a happy scene, I will listen to jolly music. Something I have been listening a lot recently whilst I get some writing done is the soundtrack to the Nintendo game, ‘The Legend of Zelda – Twilight Princess’. It contains so many different types of music. Suspense, happy, dark and sad. It is the perfect accompaniment to writing my fantasy series. Sometimes the right piece of music can get me in the moment and I really get into my work.
I am also very close to finishing part one of my short story which will be available to view through the ‘Hydryth’ section of my site shortly.
