Creating the Right Mood

dreamstimefree_95245Of course writers need to concentrate on setting the mood for any book by pulling in readers with descriptions that make them feel they are in the world with the characters but what inspires writers to create these worlds?

I like to use visuals to create like using pictures and movies as inspiration. I also like to use music to help inspire me to write so here is a simple playlist that helps to motivate:

1. Running Up That Hill by Placebo

2. Help I’m Alive by Metric

3. Believer by Viva Voce

4. Hell by James D. Stark

5. Vampires In Searchlight by John Alexander Ericson

6. Boom by Anjulie

7. Dirty Laundry by BitterSweet

8. Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine

9. Broken Wings by Tomoko Tane

10. Stay by Hurts

11. Bloodstream by Stateless

12. Wait it Out by Imogen Heap

13. Possibility by Lykke Li

14. Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri

15. Skinny Love by Birdy

What are some of the songs you listen to for inspiration?
