  1. My writing music, when I use any, is Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. It’s interesting – as the mood of the music changes, so does the feel of my writing.

  2. Because I work as a radio blokey, I have millions and millions of productions CDs – I tend to make “mix” tapes of my favourite tracks to get me in the mood.

    When I was writing Adventure Eddy, I had a CD which included some key ’emotional’ bits of theme music and then some tracks I’d have liked to have had in the movie – believe it or not “South Bound and Down” was on there, from Smokey and the Bandit, for when Eddy and his mates race 600 miles across France in his old sports car to catch a TGV.

  3. Thanks for your comment, Simon. Do you get the urge to write about fallen priests and spinning heads? 😉

  4. Roland, what a great image! The writer bashing furiously at the keyboard while SATB blasts out. What a life!

    ‘We gotta loong way to go and short time to get there…’

    Yee-hah.

  5. Simon, ah… Tubular Bells. Surely you don’t have that one song on repeat ad nauseum?

    And I’m with ya Ian – soundtracks are the best background for writing.

  6. Thanks for your comment, Eric. I do worry about Simon 🙂 Love Tubular Bells though, it’s just that my brother played it ad nauseam when I was kid…
