What is First Friday, again? Expect a page for more information soon, but in short: First Friday is a blog hop my dear friend, Bailey, and I started in order to help us get more into blogging. It’s meant to bea fun and thoughtful way for us to look at various things related to our writing. I’ll be creating a page soon, so please check it out in case you want to join us.
Today’s theme is inspiration: What inspires our current writing projects?
So, I wanted to share music that I find inspiring to a few of my projects. This doesn't mean I necessarily listen to music while writing--sometimes I do, sometimes I find it distracting--but these are songs that make me feel my project. It's insta-storyland for me when I hear these songs.
First up: SummerTime Sadness by Lana Del Rey.
Second: Power Trip by J. Cole.
I don’t have a title yet, but this song gets me in the mood for writing Shane’s book--the next Whatever It Takes novel. The novel focuses on Shane--he’s a hot mess, let me tell you--and takes place after Fierce. That being said, the Whatever It Takes novels do NOT have to be read in order or as a series. Each novel stands on its own. Anyway, Shane is just...Shane. He’s got a lot going on, he gets pushed to his max and this song just has the right vibe.
What do you find inspiring for your writing?
