reluctbachSynopsis: Rick Allyn had his heart broken five years ago on a reality dating show, and trying to convince him to come back for another round to boost the ratings would be far from easy.

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.

Now’s the time to let your musical tastes shine! Dedicate a love song (or two or three) to your favorite book characters, and tell us why. Get as creative as you want, whether you decide to film a video, share a playlist or write out some lyrics and snap a photo.

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.
