The Drumming in my Head

When people talk about music playlists that they wrote their book too, I always pause and think about how I could explain what my own personal playlist is. I'm a very moody writer. Sometimes I want to write where there's lots of background noise and people moving around. Sometimes I have to write in complete solitude. Sometimes I need music and sometimes I need quiet.

But there was an underlying musical theme that was always there in the back of my head as I wrote. And it is simply drums.

Drums are such a huge part of Korean culture that it is definitely an influence in my writing. But, the two drumming scenes I had in my book were both cut out in revision. That's ok. While it wasn't integral to the plot of my story, drums were a big part of what played in my head as I wrote it. So here are some video clips of some awesome Korean drums. I hope you enjoy them!

I always need quiet to write, and I only listen to music while I'm seeking inspiration, not while actually putting words down.
