This year I'm trying to limit the time I spend surfing the web. I've found that going down that rabbit hole occupies a lot of time and keeps me from doing something that most people generally deem worthwhile.
However, I continue to visit the site Largehearted Boy on a daily basis. The blog is a collection of links and stories about two of my favorite topics, literature and music. It's worthwhile reading that fuels my creativity and steers me towards books and music I might enjoy.
My favorite feature at Largehearted Boy is titled Book Notes, where writers create and discuss a music playlist that ties into their recently published books. I often file these away, so I have some leads when I'm trolling for music or books. Last year author Laura Groff created a playlist for her book Delicate Edible Birds. She puts a spin on this by including a list of beers to go with each song and chapter of the book. In my world, you can't go wrong with beer. Beer, literature, and music. A great trio.
