    Thanks for this great look at music, truth, and writing. Lately, I’ve been using music to return me to the truth of the YA novel I’m writing. Inspired by other authors’ playlists, I decided to create one of my own. Time and time again, I discover new aspects of my characters lurking in the lyrics. I even did this really cool exercised (modified slightly from Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way) in which I listened to my playlist in its entirety while doodling. I came away with an amazing grasp of “the white hot center” of my story. You can check out a few September posts about music and writing on my blog, as well as, my playlist doodle on the Works in Progress Page… just go to http://jillbixel.blogspot.com .

    Thanks, Jill. Doodling is indeed an excellent way to break out of a writing rut….
