The more you go through the draft process and learn how to detach yourself from any particular incarnation of the material, the easier it gets.
I'm nearing completion of the first draft of Unmortal, and I've already accumulated a bundle of notes on how to tackle future drafts that might make it into a significantly different book. But for the better. Drafts are nothing but raw material for their successors anyway. And the more you go through the draft process and learn how to detach yourself from any particular incarnation of the material, the easier it gets.
The soundtrack for my space opera, 'Flight Of The Vajra', were it to have a soundtrack.
With each book I write, there's almost always a soundtrack of some kind to go with it -- music to match the mood and tempo of each scene. That said, I find I almost never listen to the music in question when writing or editing the scene in question, as I find that too distracting; there's other music I have specifically for the writing process.
Odds are you can find most, if not all, of these by way of your friendly neighborhood music streaming service.

Last time I posted in this series, I talked about the characters, major and supporting. This time around, I'll run down some of the major themes in the story as I saw them.
Yes, I have yet another new project to announce. One inspired by clipart. No, really.
Well, it's a long story, but since you asked, I'll tell you all about how I almost ended up writing a story about a geisha and her dog, but have since expanded that into a much larger project.
