When it comes to writing, especially when it comes to steamy scenes, or any scene for that matter, I like to listen to music that sets that particular tone. It helps to visualize what is happening at that moment. And if you have read either of my books, I mention a couple of songs in each of them and the characters react to the music as well. Music is a very powerful tool for envisioning. I guess it could be considered the same as day dreaming because that is exactly what I end up doing....just consciously and writing. I can see whole scenes, colors, feel feelings, etc. with music and I'm sure you can too.
This song, Stolen Moment, by Alisha Keys is one of my favorites. I thought I'd share this with you. The lyrics are really nice...and it's perfect for writing to.I do all the time.
Here is another of my favs... Musiq Soulchild's So Beautiful...enjoy!
