MusicA Lesson by RidingTheWind
If you're not a music person then there's no point in you going through this step.
Listen to some music and see how it relates to a character’s personality and how you can write more about that personality. I always have one character who’s the joker that never takes anything seriously, and whenever I want to talk more about his personality I tend to listen to upbeat All Time Low songs because they suit him/her.
Music isn’t limited to helping characters. If I’m about to write a very sad scene, I listen to any sad song I can find so I can get a feeling for the atmosphere. If I’m in a very good mood, my mind goes blank when it comes to writing something sad, and if I do write something it sounds very distant and doesn’t relate well to the event.

AboutHi, I go to college so I pretty much only get to write occasionally in my free time...I don't think I'm a very good writer, and I know I don't include enough detail in my work, so I usually have to go..
