NaNo 2020: Music!

Music helps set the mood for writing, helps us focus, helps us visualize a scene or setting. I'm not the only writer who develops soundtracks for my NaNo projects.

Each week will have a different collection of musical offerings ala youtube to carry you through the weekend's wording.

If you've got some favorites, be they in the same genre or something else completely different, share them! Who knows, someone else might find just the inspiration they need for their WIP!

This week's offering is a 6 hour classical music compilation:

So Wednesdays I'll offer up trios of silly, fun songs meant to take your mind off of the page, maybe make you sing or get up and dance...and who knows, maybe even inspire some words along the way:

Today's trio comes from Disney:
