I know I don't have a ton of readers here, but I thought this would be a good experiment if anyone is interested in being a guinea pig. Cory blogged about the writing playlist she has for each work in progress. I have a few playlists for writing: One is just non-stop Radiohead, and the others are Pandora stations created around different moods, depending on what kind of scene I'm working on. But as an exercise in character development, I also put together a play list for each character.
My male main character has this play list. If you have some time to kill, listen to it, then come back and tell me what kind of character you picture. I'm still struggling with the female character, I think because her personality is harder to seperate from my own tastes, and of course they both suffer from the fact that I came of age in the late 90's and never quite grew out of that stage in my musical preferences.
I'd be glad to return the favor if anyone else is so inclined!
