Novel Inspiration

It’s the second week of the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest and the talented Juliana Brandt has offered up another task:

“This week, we’ll cater to those of us who are completely possessive over our WIPs (work in progress) and don’t want to give anything too telling away. Instead of posting something intimate about our writing, post a picture or piece of music that describes your WIP.

What do you look to when you write? What inspires you? How else do you use your creativity? Music? Pictures? Art?”

When I write, I often have a playlist.  Here is a music video (and lyrics) for one of the more influential songs in my contemporary YA WIP (the one in the editing stages, NOT my NaNo project).

So let me know what you think my story is about!

LULLABY by SIA

Send a wish upon a star
Do the work and you’ll go far
Send a wish upon a star
Make a map and there you are

Send a hope upon a wave
A dying wish before the grave
Send a hope upon a wave
For all the souls you failed to save

And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don’t break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don’t break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well

Send a question in the wind
It’s hard to know where to begin
So send the question in the wind
And give an answer to a friend

Place your past into a book
Put in everything you ever took
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook

And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don’t break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don’t break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
