Anonymous asked: Hey Beth! I just wanted to ask if you write to music? If so, do you have any good recommendations? (I'm really stuck for writing music atm and it's totally ruining my flow!!) xXxXxXx
Often, yes! Particularly when I have writers’ block, or when I want to write but don’t know what to write - and soundtracks or instrumental covers are by far the best, as far as I’m concerned! Instrumental music is always so incredibly emotive, and when music doesn’t have lyrics, you can interpret the song however you want!
Some of my favourite soundtracks are Pirates of the Caribbean, Doctor Who, and Game of Thrones. They’re all on Spotify if you can’t find them anywhere else (so you can sign up and listen for free!)
8tracks is another one that’s brilliant for instrumental (covers of songs - and God, I have such a weakness for string quartet covers! - and also original scores) and you don’t even need to sign up (but if you do, it’s free).
I hope that’s helped you; please do let me know how useful you find it, or if you listen to anything else you find helps with your writing! :) xo
