Scoring Your Story

Films have music, a score, to accompany the moving picture. I thought about doing the same with books, in a sort of a way.

If you read What’s You Writing Thing? you’ll see that I said I listen to music when I write. Occasionally the music fits the scene I’m writing, or the mood and adds to it as I write. Obviously a musical track cannot be applied to a book (though I bet someone will try with the advent of eBooks). But I thought about choosing music from my selection to go with a certain scene to enhance my perception of it, even if it wasn’t in he finished product (which it wouldn’t be). Maybe books will come with a CD with recommended tracks to play while reading. I think I prefer reading the way it is, but writing with the music is interesting.

Let me know what you think about music and writing and combining the two. Does anyone get ideas for writing things from music? Or feel the same as I do.

I own the copyright to musical eBooks, by the way. So don’t try it.

  1. You know, I love listening to music as I write. It can be anything from some classical to 90s grunge to popular stuff on the local radio. Right now, “I got a feelin” with some black eyed peas – ha! I have read once somewhere that the Twilight series was inspired by some Muse and Death Cab for Cutie. Now when I hear either of those bands, I can totally relate to the characters in Stephanie Myers books. Thanks for this post. Very good.
