Todays taste is a little more... well... dark, but dark does not automatically mean bad does it? In fact I think there is a great deal of beauty to be found in such things including in this wonderful song by Irish singer Karliene
I like this. Dark and brooding. Makes me think of walking in nature on gloomy, cloudy days.
Right now my music taste is around building my character's emotional state before writing. Playlists are so crucial to this for me, but I find that it helps to build the mood and feel of the story and if helps to get to know and understand the character. Today it is really about getting inside John's head for this one - the MC for the current project. The goal is to select three songs that the character would like that also speak to their mindset.
While John has a dark mind his is also hopeful and dreams of greater things still to come in his life.
The third song was a little harder to decide on - but it think Andrew Belle works well. At his core he does have a romantic soul though it is at times hard to see.
Never someone to do things half heartedly, John once committed to a task, commits until it is done. Even if that means forever.

My workplace is opening up, and the rainy season here has just started. It's my favourite time of the year. I'm not a person who gets sentimental about where they're from, but this place is beautiful when it rains. I love driving in a light drizzle, listening to music, watching the gray seas roll and tumble, watching mist curl up against the hills and office buildings. So much of my all-time favourite music is "rainy" music. These have been in the rotation a lot recently:

...it's a bop, Okay?
My NaNo playlist is gonna be a little different this year. No Taylor Davis or Two Steps from Hell this time 'round. I'm going for a deep occult-y soundtrack, so I've been listening to lots of In This Moment and Cinephile to get in the mood for some small town witchery:

pelwrath: From The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows; The word of the day: Fool’s Guilt: a pulse of shame you feel even though you’ve done nothing wrong-passing a police car while under the speed limit, being carded after buying or ordering a drink.
