When I write, it's with music blasting in the background. The scenes are set by my music. It sounds weird, but it's true. This is how I write. Others may listen to stuff here and there but they might not need to be surrounded by lyrics or beats.
Music sets my mood. Lyrics drive my words. Depending on my characters too, I can usually listen to songs that would relate to them. So here is a little preview of RIVAL LOVE's Playlist.
