I’m still in the planning and researching stage of my new work in progress, Always Be My Baby (a working title). I hope in March to get down to the business of writing, but I’d like to start sharing what I’ve been putting together.
I love to make aesthetics as part of my writing process, and my new WIP is set in the 1970s, so I made the following five aesthetics to help get me in a Seventies frame of mind. While writing, I can look back on them if I feel myself wanting to lean back into modern times. Shall we travel back in time?
Making these was one of the very first things I did when I started my research, and I won’t be able to use all of these in my story. Always Be My Baby takes place in late 1970 and early-to-mid 1971, and I do want to be historically accurate. So, for instance, my characters won’t be seeing Grease at the local movie theater, as it hadn’t come out yet. But they served a purpose for me, plus, they were fun to make!
Also, to aid in the actual writing of the book, I put together a Seventies playlist on Spotify. I also love to make playlists that coordinate with my projects! I’ve listened to it while researching, and I look forward to listening during my writing sessions. Click here and enjoy it!
That’s all for this week…see you back here soon!
