Goodreads asked V.S. Velde:

How do you get inspired to write?

V.S. Velde Music plays a major part in my creative process. Listening to a relatively narrow playlist when I'm writing helps me keep a consistent mood through my writing. The playlist for writing Blue Caldera consisted of a lot of Florence + the Machine, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, modern eastern-european chamber music (such as Gidon Kremer's From My Home album), and Charles Mingus.
