Mondays are for Music: Score, Track 01

Everyone has a method to their madness and I’ll admit that mine isn’t very unique. I have to be sitting in the same spot for anything of quality to be written, I (usually) need to be alone, and I need to be listening to music that fits the scene. This is very easy for me, as mostly any song I listen to will relate to either a scene, a character, a pairing, a story, whatever. To keep all of these in order, I create playlists for each character, pairing, a soundtrack to the story, and a score. This is mostly due to the fact that my writing is very cinematic. (I want to say I write cinematically, but this isn’t a word. It should be. I use it more often than I should.) I mean, I don’t know about any of you, but a fantastic score really makes a film. I don’t think Titanic would be as great without the score, nor would LOTR, Pirates, or one of my personal favourites: 300.

Let it be said that films with mediocre scores are rarely remembered by me.

I know books don’t have scores, but they should. They really should. And mine do. Unofficially of course, as I don’t actually have the rights to any of this music, but they are pieces that when I hear them I just say, “Man, that would fit this scene so well!”

The first track on my unofficial score for The Noble Project (this score was created before it became a series, which means it is only going to grow.) is a piece from the film 300. If not for Titanic, it would be my favourite film of all time.

I know books don’t have trailers, but if this series did, this would be my choice.

Because nothing says dark literary fiction quite like No Mercy.


About Frenchie Leigh

I am an avid writer of the romantically tragic, the fashionably brooding, and foolishly believing. Though my plot lines come to me through music, my writing style is most greatly influenced by my personal favourite authoresses: Julia Quinn and Eloisa James. View all posts by Frenchie Leigh
