Something I always do when writing my novel is listen to music from movie soundscores for inspiration. But it can't be just anything. I choose tracks that evoke the emotion and action of a particular scene. Basically, I write the movie in my head, and the music serves as the soundscore. I'm a crazy fan of movies, by the way. Studying film production this fall :)
Anyways. I'm compiling a list of the particular sound score tracks I attribute to each chapter of my novel, mostly so it will be accessible to a few individuals who happen to be reading my novel at the moment, and for future readers. The list isn't quite finished yet, but there is one song I must post now. Unlike the others, it's by a band. I consider this song the theme, if you will, of my novel--well, really, of the entire trilogy, though I have not yet written the second or third novels. It's an absolutely amazing song if you haven't heard it before. So click and enjoy!
