You have to take the long way down…

I’m currently wrestling with the first chapter of a new novel, and realizing how important it is to find the right mood to start things off with. This is especially true as the novel is sequel, so it’s a tightrope act to create a mood that flows naturally from the first book but also feels new and fresh. In a true act of fairly useful writerly procrastination, I have created a playlist of songs to help set the mood. Three of them are especially perfect for the tone and subject matter of the novel, and I thought I’d share them here, via youtube.
