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:

Weekend Challenge: A Procrastinator's Spotify

Hey all! I had this great plan around.. Tuesday? .. to come up with some creative prompt for this weekend.

Guess who promptly forgot to come up with anything?

So.. in an effort to grasp blindly at the ether, I decided to use Spotify's personalized Release Radar mix for today. It's random enough (I hope!)

Pick a number (or more) from 1-30 and I'll give you a song!

As always, if it inspires: GREAT! If it doesn't: That's okay, too! Sometimes they're duds
