Evanescence and other muses I use…

How do you get in the writing mood? Do you listen to music? Does the mood just strike at any given time without much help?

Sometimes I just wake up in the writing mood or just when an idea for a story hits I just have to write. This afternoon I was listening to Pandora radio on my laptop as I did tax returns. Exciting for a Sunday afternoon I know, but it’s that time of year. Well, anyhow, I was listening and I have Evanescence radio dialed in on Pandora. I just love to hear Amy Lee sing. Her voice is so haunting and smooth. 

So as I listened to “Hello” which is a really deep song, not in voice, but in emotional. It made me think that music can evoke so many emotions. This songs makes me want to write. I don’t know why deep songs do that to me, but they do. Sometimes I hear a Christian song and I’m suddenly at my laptop typing. Sometimes it’s a country love song that does it. 

What inspires you? If you’ve ever looked at my Youtube trailer videos for my books you’ll notice a definite trend. They are mostly to the music of Evanescence. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend, or what’s left of it. Can’t wait til tomorrow as it’s the big release of the much awaited 2nd book in the “Flames of Love” Series – Rekindled Flames. Thanks to the blog friends that said they would send out my promotional page. If anyone else would like to just let me know or reblog tomorrow’s post.

As always, good writing, and May God Bless You!
