Muse-ical Inspiration

My muse-ical inspiration at the moment is Wax Fang’s 2007 release, Majestic. My husband currently has this on his playlist, and it has slowly but surely been influencing my writing over this last week.

The intro is long, but worth it:

You may have heard this song when it was on American Dad, so I thought I’d share that bizarre video too:

Thrown to The Blue

My Muse-ic of the Moment

muse-ic

My muse-ic of the moment is the song I have on repeat for the second redraft of Thrown to The Blue. The tone of this song is spot on and it is such a great tool to use to fine tune this draft. Anyone who has seen Suicide Squad will have heard this song, and although Thrown to The Blue is miles away from Suicide Squad, it still applies to my draft.

Twenty One Pilots: Heathens

These lyrics in particular ring a chord:

You’ll never know the freakshow sitting next to you
You’ll have some weird people sitting next to you
You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget.

Why’d you come, you knew you should have stayed
I tried to warn you just to stay away
And now they’re outside ready to bust
It looks like you might be one of us.

Do you write/ draw/ paint to a playlist and does it help ignite creativity? Are there any other methods or rituals you use to get in the zone?

Muse-ic: Don’t Worry About Me

I heard this song whilst driving, and even once I had parked up, I couldn’t get out until I heard the whole thing. It was a lump in the throat, speaking directly to me, muse-ic moment.

I’m very lucky to feel this way about my hubby *aww blush*, and I sent the link to him straight away. However, the more I listened to it, the more it also rang true with my MC in my current WIP. Me and Teddie sharing a moment over here. (EVO Nation and EVO Shift readers will understand this).

Don’t Worry About Me by Frances

Feel the fear for you, I’ll cry your tears for you
I’ll do anything I can to make you comfortable
Even if I fall down when you’re not around
Don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

If I fall, you fall
And if I rise, we’ll rise together
When I smile, you smile
And don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

[Verse 1]
I’ll feel the fear for you, I’ll cry your tears for you
I’ll do anything I can to make you comfortable
Even if I fall down when you’re not around
Don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

[Verse 2]
I’ll climb the hills you face, I’ll do this in your place
I do anything to go through it instead of you
But even if I fall down when you’re not around
Don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

[Chorus]
Cause if I fall, you fall
And if I rise, we rise together
When I smile, you smile
And don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

Cause if I fall, you fall
And if I rise, we rise together
When I smile, you smile
And don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me

[Instrumental bridge]

[Outro]
If I fall, you fall
And if I rise, we’ll rise together
When I smile, you smile
And don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me
Don’t worry about me, don’t worry about me
