Fun Question Time! What's your favourite music to write to, if you do write to music? (Totes not a thinly veiled attempt to broaden my writing playlists. Psh.)

maxkirin:

Hello there!

I actually love listening to music while I’m writing~ It’s part of my creative process. I literally have music on at all times ^u^

Not so long ago, I answered an ask similar to this, but I would love to elaborate a little more c;

I love listening to Video-Game Soundtracks. I find them to be PERFECT for writing, since they seldom contain lyrics and there’s a song for just about every feeling :D

Some of my favorite soundtracks include:

  • Chrono Trigger. Although mostly fantasy-y in nature, it contains a lot of songs with eerie and rather sad feelings to them. I am gonna admit that Schala’s Theme” is in the playlist for every single one of my books. I love that song SO MUCH(pssst an awesome guy remastered the entire album and has a FREE download over at Soundcloud)
  • Chrono Cross. It’s similar to the OST for Chrono Trigger, except it has a more lively style to the music. It’s very energetic, and a little uplifting. One of my favorite tracks is "Chronomantic".
  • Persona 3 & 4. They’re both VERY energetic, happy, exciting, and modern— which a lot of video games don’t really do. It’s rather casual, and I use it primarily for writing ‘real world’ stories. One of my favorite songs is "Reverie", and if you can’t write your OTP holding hands to this song then I can’t help you :p
  • FTL (+ Expansion). If you have 5 bucks to spare, go buy Ben Prunty’s OST for the game FTL. This is such a good album if you’re looking to write anything SciFi. It’s not overpowering— and most of it is quite relaxing! I listen to this while meditating too, I just love this album. My favorite song BY FAR is “Space Cruiser (Title)”, it’s just too perfect.

You may have noticed that I linked to some music on my blog. As a matter of fact I used to post "Music to Write To", but I stopped after Tumblr got angry at me. Though you should go through my #writing music tag and checkout what’s there :D

As a final note, if you haven’t gone to the ask reply I linked earlier, you should because I just fangirl over how awesome OCremix.org is. Seriously, they’re an awesome place where people who love videogame music make their remixes and post them for FREE. Its crazy, like why arent all of you downloading their music right now? Go. Go and download it all.

I hope this wasn’t too silly was helpful :D

Keep Writing~

maxkirin:

So, someone wanted some tips on planning/outlining their novel and instead I made this. It kind of happened.

If you’re new to my silliness let me introduce myself.

My name is M. Kirin and I write books. If you’re interested in writer resources, inspiration, and the adventures of a dork, you could do a lot worse than me :3
