🎶It’s Day 1 of the #WIPSoundtrack2023 writing challenge over on Instagram hosted by D. Allyson Howlett!
I participated in last year’s challenge, and I loved it. This is one of the fun ones!
Music plays a massive role in my writing and in my life. Songs listened to when I’m writing often end up on the fantasy soundtrack I create for each one of my books. (You can catch soundtracks for all my published books here on my website if you search for “soundtrack.”)
Right now, I have a pretty huge playlist going for my current work in progress (WIP). When I’m writing, I often think: If this were a movie, and music was playing in the background, what would it be?
Well, let’s find out!
🔥My WIP, Walking a Fine Witchline, Bellerose Witchline Book 3
Day 1 Prompt: Makes you think.
Song choice: If She Knew What She Wants, by The Bangles

Scene: Lucie Bellerose and Rabbit are at a summer festival of concerts, relaxing in the sun on a blanket overlooking a field leading up to the venue’s stage.
…Rabbit’s cheeks flushed, and I realized it wasn’t just from the sun. “I don’t mean that in a weird way.”
We considered each other. “You’re not referring to my perfume anymore, are you?”
Rabbit shook his head. “Can we not?”
“You opened the door on this big reveal,” I said, shifting and sitting on the blanket. I pulled my knees up and rested my chin on them. “Tell me. I’m excited we still have secrets to share with each other.”
“Oh, you think we’ve told each other everything?” Rabbit’s awkwardness melted a bit. “You’re saying you’ve shared *everything* about Lucie Bellerose with me?”
I let my gaze drift past him. “No, but I think we’ve been pretty open with who we are and what we can do.” I could feel him studying me.
“I can’t even begin to know all the magic making up who you are,” he said softly. “It’s not like I can see your witchline…”
🎶 This writing challenge runs from May 15 – 28! Stay tuned as tomorrow the next prompt is: Makes you try. (That post is now available. Click here!)
