It is my practice to draw writing inspiration from music. In that spirit, I thought would share with all of you wonderful readers a few songs from my personal writing playlist.
Some of these songs were directly referenced in the book and others inspired plot lines, while still others simply encompass the theme of my novel.
This is one of my all-time favorite songs: Get Higher by The Paper Tongues! It was integral in putting my plot into motion. I could not write this book without mentioning this song.
Another one by The Paper Tongues that inspired a plot line is entitled, “What If” but apparently, no one has ever loaded a decent video of it on YouTube, so you’ll have to check that one out on iTunes. I totally recommend it.
Another song mentioned in the book is Love Song. Instead of giving you the original, I’m loading the cover by Adele. Her entire album, 21, was inspiring, but this song…. Love it!
Here is a song probably none of you have heard of: Love Letters by Paper Route
Anyone who knows me, knows I am a HUGE New Kids On The Block Fan (don’t judge me). So, this short list would not be complete without this song: Back To Life, from their most recent album, 10. Yeah, I know there’s a video link already in the sidebar. That should tell you just how much I love this song!
What about you? What songs do you find inspirational when you’re writing? I’m always on the look-out for new music and I’d love to hear about them.
