Oh, you make me wanna listen to music again.
Why yes, yes I did quote Glambert and I'm darn proud to! But this post isn't about him...Okay so it SORT OF is about him, but more importantly this post is about music.
How many of you have a play list that you set your Itunes to every time you sit down to write your novel? Better yet, how many of you use Pandora?
Over at Shannon Whitney Messenger's blog I posed the question if there was any music that she listened to that just sparked something with her writing. (I know I'm really deep aren't I?) Anywhoo, that question sparked another quandary in my head...has any music inspired my writing?
When I wrote MY PAPER HEART, I literally had theme songs for my hero and heroine (Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood and Hell on the heart by Eric Church, respectively), if I ever was stuck on something I would just listen to one of those two songs and I would instantly know how one character saw the other.
But, of course, MY PAPER HEART has been shelved for now, so I need to focus on my alien boy and human girl. There were alot of songs that helped to push me through writing (Cherry Bomb is a great one to listen to if you are writing an alien battle scene, FYI), but I needed a theme song for Ace and Alex..
So I thought REAL hard and thought this one could be a pretty good one for Alex...
Do you have any better suggestions? Do your characters have theme songs? Do you really think this is the official music video?
