Here today we have Sara Grant, the author of Dark Parties, an excellent novel:
The 45 record played a significant role in my upbringing. If you’d set the arm a certain way on the old record players, it would play your favourite 45 over and over and over again. Getting ready for school, I’d select one song and let it repeat. I’d soon know every word of the lyrics. I must have driven my family insane.
I still have the same 45-record mentality. I download one song and play it over and over and over. Now I typically use earphones so no one has to listen. But there’s nothing better than unplugging the earphones, blasting the song as loud as your stereo – and tenancy agreement – will allow.
I typically can’t listen to music while I’m writing. I’m a sing-along type of person. Music isn’t really something in the background. I do, however, have a selection of songs that I listen to when I take breaks for inspiration and encouragement.
