Let’s go on a road trip! Pick 3-4 people—fictional characters, readers/bloggers, authors—you’d love to take on this road trip; a place you’re headed towards like Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Martha’s Vineyard, etc; and what you’ll be doing on this road trip, like topics of discussion, who’s driving, who’s in charge of the road trip music, etc.

This past year I participated in NaNaWriMo and was trying to write a novel inspired by my recent trip to Bath. Normally I don’t listen to music when I write as I’m prone to singing along, but I had a wretched bout of writer’s block and no choice but to find some inspiration. I searched the internet for songs that would fit my characters’ personalities or important scenes. By the time I had my musical list finished I was ready to write again.
