Yesterday I found out that I like to listen to “atmospheric electronic” music while writing. I started listening to it simply because I thought it might suit the sci-fi bent of my novel. As it turned out, I enjoyed some of it enough to replay it.
I keep telling the kids that “you learn something new every day.” This is true. And sometimes the new things we learn are about ourselves, the people we had thought we already knew inside and out. Isn’t it a wonderful thing to be surprised by yourself?
