Sensations: sound

I'm an immersion writer. What I'm focused on is filtered into every aspect of my life: food, design, movement and especially sound. I didn't grow up with TV (really didn't miss it) but I did grow up with radio. For me, music connects immediately to emotion.

When I write, I use music to fill myself with emotion I can pour on the page. Not necessarily for a character, but for the ambiance of the location, the texture of the world, the palette of sensations, thoughts and feelings I'll be exploring in the story.

Bless Sarah Brightman, she brought out Harem right as I was embarking on my all-Morocco, all-the-time adventure. Track # even mentions "American writers"!
