So, I've figured out recently that by figuring out what kind of music my characters listen to, I can get inside their head and get tons of scenes - which means I spend a lot of my writing time looping their favorite stuff. Of course - almost all of my characters are women aged between 27 and 47 living in the year 2035...which meant a lot of them have a bunch of old records including but not limited too Taylor Swift, Lorde, Katy Perry, etc. So the question then is whether it's worth it for me (as a 27-year old man) to loop Taylor Swift songs for three hours if that's what gets me writing. It's a rhetorical question - if it works I'm sticking with the method - but wondering how many others have similar methods that make them wonder whether they're going insane. As a sidenote - Taylor Swift's album "Red" is super-haunting if you're listening to it from the point of view of a 39-year old alcoholic woman mourning for her lost idealistic youth. That was almost scary.
