It seems like music playlists are big among writers. I’ve seen people spend inordinate amounts of time coming up with the perfect soundtrack for their characters, especially in the roleplaying world. It’s as inspiring to them as art and maps are to me.
Is the summer heating up, or is that just me?
Honestly, I don’t even like summer. I hate being hot or even remotely warm. I overheat easily. It makes me feel sick, gives me a headache, and makes me feel generally icky.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll already know that I took part in April’s Camp NaNoWriMo. I didn’t want to write a novel this time (I’m still working on my Guardians trilogy that I started in 2011!) so instead I focused on simply writing every day using a handy prompt sheet by Eva Deverell.
