Shoring up the pictures
I mentioned in my last post the amount of thinking I do when I'm starting a new story. To help me build up a sense of that story and who those characters are i make myself a playlist of music that helps me define certain moments or characteristics of the story. Here's my list for Just Look at me Now:
Love Scenes - Beverly Craven It's all coming back to me - Meatloaf Shape of my heart - Sting I get the sweetest feeling - Jackie Wilson I will never fall in love again - The Noisettes If I could turn back time - Cher with Cyndi Lauper Shes got the look - Roxette
I usually add to this as the book goes on and over time one song will come to mean that story to me. For Animal Instincts it was the Sugababes - Cos I know how I feel about you now. For Crystal Clear it was Girls in their summer clothes by Bruce Springsteen. Oh, and I found a picture for Josh - my hero, yep, that's him at the top. Apparently he's an actor called Matthew Goode but I've never seen him act so i don't know if he's famous or not. I'm sure one of you more worldly people will tell me lol.
