Nudge # 5 Foley Sounds.
We scream at the sound of a cabbage being cut in two because we think it’s a head being severed from an unsuspecting body, we look over our shoulders at the sounds of footsteps on gravel not thinking about the empty shoes being trudged through a small tray of grade 2 shale. Sounds fill in the whole picture when we watch films but what sounds are in our heads when we’re writing? What sounds inspire us? If we hear a blade being scraped along another, do we always have to turn to horror? As the days are drawing in, sit back, enjoy this short sound file, close your eyes, then get writing.
