When I write a story I need to have a clear image of what my main character looks like. And everyday I thank the Google Gods for the trillion images out there, for I love to waste hours away searching for that perfect picture that captures who my imaginary friends are.
But I know that for some... music is what brings inspiration. Do you listen to music while you write?
Sometimes I do.... but I've never had a playlist for my stories... until last week... when Pandora gifted me with the PERFECT song for my girl and her love interest....
... there I was, happily writing, when this song came up........
and people, I don't mean to sound like a total DORK.. though I'm about to... it was freaking magical!!!!
Oh, I don't know what it is about this song.. but every time I hear it, Kizzy and Finn become so alive that one of two things happen.....
a) the words flow freely onto the page... and here's where that repeat button comes in handy!
b) I have to stop whatever I'm doing and take deep slow breaths because there's this.. ache in my heart... and I'm pretty sure it doesn't belong to me... it's like I can feel what they're feeling for each other (I told you, monumental dorkiness here) and all I can do is sit and listen and feel!
hello? are you guys still with me? or have you run off afraid kookiness it's catchy?
But seriously, I'm not sure there's anything I love more (not counting the family. Obviously!) than this... these feelings... these people... oh do I love my people ;)
So tell me.... what inspires you? is there a particular song? Share. I'd love to listen.
