How do we set the mood? Of course, setting is important and probably one of the quickest ways to establish mood in a story. The plot, characters, dialogue–every aspect of your story helps create that special mood that makes your book unique.
As a writer, how do you set the mood for your writing? Do you listen to music in order to get into a certain state of mind? Does the music you listen to vary scene-by-scene, chapter-by-chapter?
I hope you enjoy this mood-evoking song by Clint Black. He’s one of my all-time favorite Country singers. Listen to the lyrics and think about setting the mood in your next masterpiece.
