First off -- Happy 4th of July! It's grey and rainy here. Not the ideal weather for picnics and such. Oh well.

On to writing....

I have to create a soundtrack for each novel that I write. Call me strange if you wish, but I will do it just the same. There are always two soundtracks that I create: an instrumental one that I can write to, and then the lyrical one that I use as a kind of mood board. Music and lyrics tell a story together -- so writing and songs go hand in hand (at least that's the way I see it). Now here I am to share my soundtrack for my novel Beginning of the End. 

Radioactive Imagine Dragons//Heroes (We Could Be) Alesso ft. Tove Lo// Blood Brothers Luke Bryan//Human Christina Perri//Young Blood Bea Miller//Superman (It's Not Easy) Five for Fighting//Angel with a Shotgun The Cab//Dreaming Alone Against the Current//Lost Michael Buble//Undone FFH//All of Me John Legend//Hesitate Steve Moakler//Superheroes The Script//I Won't Let Go Rascal Flatts

Do you like to write soundtracks for your novel? Why/why not? Do you prefer writing to instrumentals or lyrical songs (I prefer instrumental, myself)?
