This week (my birthday week) my writing time was mostly dedicated to preparing things for the filming of my short film. There is a lot to prep, such as locations, costumes, actors, shots, etc. This week I also was just getting super hyped from Thor: Love and Thunder hitting theaters.
My writing and creativity this week were really inspired by a rock vibe, as much of the playlist will reflect. Running Up that Hill and Everlong stayed in my mind from last week. I think with the 80’s setting of Stranger Things and the Hair Metal aesthetic of Thor, I have been in a Metal Fantasy mood this week. I have been thinking about how to take that vibe and work it into some writing. Right now I think the main stop-gap in my writing has been figuring out what genre to make a piece in. I find myself wondering if something should be a film script, a prose fiction piece, or a comic script. At the end of the day, I try to ask myself “what will be the most enjoyable experience for the audience?”
Let me know in the comments below if you ever have this writing issue of deciding the medium to write in. I hope you enjoy this week’s Writing Playlist and have a great day!
