So I’ve been a bad seed and haven’t been posting here regularly like I hoped I would. I always have all these great ideas, and I start them, but then I never seem to find the time to finish them. (Yeah, excuses, excuses).
Anyway, music is something I find really inspirational when I write. In fact, this year’s NaNoWriMo project will probably be an expansion of a short story inspired by a song–more on that in a future post. And UnConventional, which is out in October (just in time for BMD Awareness Week–more on that later, too) also has music playing a huge role in the life of the main character, Di.
I’ve been meaning to do some posts here related to music and how it connects to my writing, but again, I never seem to get around to it. So today I was doing some laundry and one of my favorite songs popped up: “Therapy” by All Time Low. It’s anachronistic for the current I/E timeline, but it makes me think a lot of Kai and the events of seasons 2 and 3 when I listen to it.
Give me therapy
I’m a walking travesty
But I’m smiling at everything
You were never a friend to me
You can take back your misery
Arrogant boy, loved yourself so no one has to
They’re better off without you (They’re better off without you)
Arrogant boy, cause a scene like you’re supposed to
They’ll fall asleep without you
You’re lucky if your memory remains
I have a lot of plans for other posts, including a “Meet the Character” from I/E I’m hoping to make a regular feature. And for those of you wondering, YES, I AM WORKING ON S3! It’s just a pretty massive project, and I like to have a huge chunk done before I start posting, so it will probably be a few months more until it picks up again.
Also, I haven’t forgotten S2 ebook. It’s coming, I promise. I just haven’t had time to do the formatting. But I’ll be posting an excerpt of it soon, and maybe some sneak peaks of S3, too, along with info on my 2014 NaNo project. 🙂
Also, this Wednesday, October 1 is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, and October 5-11 is Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Week, so look on twitter, if nothing else, for stuff related to both of those things!Share:
