Hello, everybody! Welcome to this week’s Mood and Music Monday!
Mood and Music Monday is a weekly meme I’ve started, wherein I’ll post a song and talk about how it relates to my day/week, as well as a few other things. (And, in case anyone’s wondering, this meme has no relation to Lauren’s [from Always Me] “Music Mondays.”) Feel free to participate and to leave a link to your posts down in the comments!
Here’s the update for this week:
SONG(S) OF THE WEEK
What are you listening to? This week, I’m listening to James Newton Howard. I’ve started writing again and working on the WiP, and, because I listened to his score for The Village (and some stuff from Lady in the Water, like these five beautiful pieces) while writing the first draft, I’m listening to it again as I add/delete scenes. It brings back so many good writing-related memories.
(Also, fun fact: Did you know he also composed the scores for Treasure Planet, Signs, I am Legend, The Sixth Sense, Peter Pan [the 2003 version], The Hunger Games movies, Snow White and the Huntsman, and The Dark Night, amongst others? He also composed the score for the movie Dinosaur, which was pretty much my childhood, so it’s safe to say that I love the guy.)
What are you reading? I finished Recreated by Colleen Houck, and I’m currently working my way through And I Darken by Kiersten White. So far, I’m enjoying it; it’s very dark and brutal, but very intriguing, too. I just wish it were shorter.
What are you drinking? Kombucha and water again.
Any goals for this week? Reviews, reading, and writing—my favorite trio. I’ll try to do a little of each at least twice this week.
How about you?
