My musical tastes change with the season. Kind of like my wardrobe. Not that I have to listen to R&B one season or Classical the next; it's more that the theme of the music changes. Winters I love love songs. In the Spring you can find me listening to more poppy songs about life. Autumn? It's more of a time-frame - I bring out the late 80s/early 90s stuff, because it reminds me of school. And in the summer...oh, the summer. Summers are a bit of an eclectic mix of Jimmy Buffet, Will Smith...even a little New Kids on the Block. Happy music about falling in love, figuring things out or remembering life's moments.
You know what doesn't change my musical tastes? The manuscripts I'm working on. I just looked at the playlist for The Saint and it's filled with Kristi's Summertime music...looked at the playlist for the manuscript under consideration at Mills & Boon - and same thing. Kristi's Summertime music (albeit different songs than The Saint). I've looked back at a few playlists now and they all have a Kristi Summertime theme to them. Even those that aren't 'summer' type books!
I'm not sure why that is. I don't mind it at all...not even a little bit. This is music I love and these are books and characters I love. Maybe that is why. Of all my favorite seasons of music, Summer mixes are definitely my favorite. Summer music makes me happy, excited...like anything is possible and everything can happen.
PS: Margie, my word count this week (so far) is at 2000..but I'm pushing for 10,000, too!
