Music to Write By

First of all, the title for this post is inspired by the movie Titanic - one of my favorite movies. The Irishman in the movie (I can't remember his name) says "Music to drown by, now I know I'm in first class." That's always been one of my favorite lines. So this post is called Music to Write By. Now, moving on.

I love to listen to music when I write. There are writers that do and there are writers that do not. I am one of those that do. I do so to get myself motivated and to help get set the moods needed for certain scenes. There are certain artists, albums and songs that I do listen to often while I'm writing, though. I also really like listening to scores from movies and/or television shows as well as their soundtracks. Today I am going to share some of that music with you.
