Road Trip Wednesday #77: Your Manuscript Music, Revisited

This Week’s Topic:
Way back in November 2009, we asked what songs represent or influence your WIP. SEVENTY road trips later (seriously! seventy!), we’re coming back to the topic to ask:

If your WIP or favorite book were music, what song(s) would it be?

Of course, not all of you are writing a novel. If you’re not writing one, choose your favorite novel, tell us the title, author, what songs it would be, and why.

As for me, I’m going to choose Brian Jacques’ Redwall series. If it were a series of songs it would be the entire Pirates of the Carribean Trilogy soundtrack. Why? Because both pack a lot of adventure into them, there is romance involved in both, and a lot of the adventures both happen on ships in large bodies of water. What other music could be better for adventuresome woodland creatures?


YA Highway is a blog ( by a group of young adult authors from all over the world! And every Wednesday YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination, from their blog, and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

But, why not do the same thing on our blog every week? I’ll post their question and you can put your answers in our comments section, or on your own blog and link back to it in our comments (and theirs too, if you’d like, because I’m sure they’d enjoy reading your answers!)
