This week is all about songs that inspire. Now, I know many authors who like to listen to music as they write. I SO can't do that. I find it pulls me out of my writing zone and I get lost in the music.
However, I have been inspired plenty of times by different songs. I'm driving in the car, listening to my music and scenes will be flashing around in my brain.
Here are a few off the top of my head...
Far Away by Nickleback - I have a fantastic scene played out for this one. Every time I hear it, I imagine my MC going through the emotional turmoil of searching for her lost love and finally finding him.
Letters From War by Mark Schultz - I've actually planned an entire story around this song. I found the whole concept of a mother writing letters to her soldier son during WW2 totally inspiring.
Fire Starter by Prodigy - This song is awesome for any fight scenes. When I was first coming up with the character of Gemma for the Time Spirit Trilogy, I would listen to this song and picture her kicking butt in her cool, calm manner. So fantastic!
(By the way - I don't actually love the video clip for this song, but I just wanted to give you a feel for the music.)
There are many, many more, but of course I can't think of them right now. Typical :)
I'm sure the other carnival goers will have plenty of awesome music to share. Make sure you check them out :)
