The Goal of the NaNoWriMo Video Songfest (from his blog):
- Have a total blast!
- Share some awesome NaNo writing music, and get a chance to hear the tunes everyone else finds groovy.
- Give everyone one stop shopping for a right rockin' video playlist throughout the month. With any luck, the combined energy of all that awesome music will help us get across that 50k word finish line just a little bit faster! Who knows, maybe that really moving snippet of music posted by a fellow writer helps you nail a difficult scene or understand a character better.
- Even if you're not doing NaNo this year, why not throw one of your favorite videos into the mix to support your fellow writers and let everyone else benefit from your good taste!
I had meant to post this earlier in the month, but then I forgot about it somewhere in the midst of things--I really must start paying more attention to my own Current Participation page. :P
But anyway, here's the video:
Not exactly a song, I know, but Beethoven rarely fails to get me feeling at least a little bit more energized. Particularly toward writing Science Fiction, though I'm not sure why.
Do you have any favorite music to listen to before/when you're writing?
