Today’s #WIPjoy topic is “songs on your MCs’ playlists,” which is frankly too big to answer effectively on social media (sorry, Twitter), so we’re doing it here on the blog.
I have a bonus to this post, too. First I have my own playlists for primary characters, and then I have a guest DJ Kayla, who beta-read Shard & Shield last week and told me then she had made character playlists, which of course meant I had to ask her to chime in on today’s #WIPjoy topic.
First, my suggested lists. These may be songs to represent the characters, but most are songs I think the characters might listen to — if they lived in a world with pop music and digital players.
Yes, some of those are an eclectic mix, but hey, real people are like that.
And now, let’s see what DJ Kayla planned for our characters and readers.
Kayla specified that these are mostly character songs rather than songs they’d purchase and play. I love that we had a few of the same tracks, but there are also some new reveals:
“This Will Be The Day,” Jeff Williams featuring Casey Lee Williams (RWBY soundtrack)
“Prelude 12/21,” AFI (I listened to this when [redacted for spoilers] thanks Laura)
“Black Widow,” Iggy Azalea (ft. Rita Ora)
Because you deserve a few more side character songs.
So, grab a few songs for your own playlist, and I hope you look forward to meeting these characters. Thanks for reading!
