As long as I can remember, I've had a story in my head. Some I've written down, but most have played in my head like movies on the screen. All have had a soundtrack. I didn't make the connection between music and the stories in my mind until 2000. Both have always been there.
This is the playlist for a Young Adult novel that has been brewing for two years.
I have about 8000 words written. Spring Break is coming up soon, which will be the perfect chance to dive back into the story . . . or start something new. Either way I love falling deep into my imagination.
p.s. It's bad writing karma to talk about a work in progress too much. The catharsis of writing fades every time the story is told. Talking through ideas improves my professional endeavors, but kills story ideas. An interesting truth.
