NaNoWriMo Writer’s Music: Week 4

At some point, I hope, your characters seek something that will help fulfill a goal, or quest, or what have you. In my case, my characters are seeking a member of their group who’s been taken. Stakes are always high in such situations, and it gives a writer the challenge of laying clues that readers MUST be able to see without feeling obvious, for characters to drop verbal clues without sounding like they’re being dropped. It’s a delicate balance, not often achieved in a single draft. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t try, and if a little bit of mysterious air can help, all the better. Let Alexandre Desplat’s music from the final Harry Potter story help provide the necessary ambiance for the mystery woven in your plot.

  1. I cannot tell that I love everything about this particular piece. I would love to hear more variations on the main theme, and there are too many exotic instruments included for my liking. In general the soundtrack is great, dripping with menace 🙂
    Happy writing!

    • Thank you kindly, Aquileana. I find music to be a vital element in my creative environment; if I can enrich the writing lives of others with the music that helps me, then the stories will share shall be all the better.
