Music is a huge part of my writing ritual. I often get stuck with the same song or set of songs for weeks, sometimes months–it’s a habit thing for me. And also because I obviously love the song. When I was writing my short holiday story, Shut Up and Kiss Me, two of the songs I listened to the most from The Fray–How to Save a Life and Look After You (videos below). I think it speaks a lot about the dynamics of the friendship of the main characters, Christine and Hunter. Check out the songs. Enjoy!
