Writing Exercise - Mixed Tapes/CD/Playlist

I love music when I write, everything simply flows better with tunes bumping in the background. As a writing exercise, I will ask myself the following question:

"if where to make me a mixed tape/CD/playlist, what would be on it?"

Addie's Playlist 
Calgary - Bon Iver
Dog Days of Summer - Florence & the Machine
Techno Fan - The Wombats
Wishing Well - The Airborne Toxic Event
Shine - Alexi Murdoch
Sabotage - Beastie Boys
Sara - Jefferson Starship
Guido's Song - Nine the Musical
Fast Car - Tracey Chapman
Breathe - Telepopmusik

Whenever I am writing about Addie, I throw her playlist, it is amazing how her character comes to life.

Some of my best playlists have come out of this writing exercise. I'd highly recommend trying it. If you need help, shoot me an e-mail.
