I’m one of those writers who make playlists for their stories.
It’s a thing that happens, almost by accident, every time I work on something longer. Suddenly, there are songs everywhere – songs I’ve known forever but their lyrics just start to fit; songs I hear for the first time that give me the perfect combination of feelings; songs that tell a story. I’ve written dozens of scenes that were born from the right song sparking the right emotion at the right moment.
Several such scenes appear in my debut novel, Love Starved. And since there are thirteen weeks until it comes out, and I have thirteen songs in my Love Starved playlist, today I’m introducing Song Saturdays here on my blog. I will be posting one song each Saturday until April 18, before gathering them all into a full 8tracks playlist.
The songs I’ve chosen are in this particular order for a reason. If you listen carefully, you may hear a story in them, catch glimpses of scenes and characters… And then listen again when Love Starved is out and tell me what you thought 🙂
So here it is, week 1: I’ll Try from Disney’s Peter Pan: Return to Neverland.
