Inspiration

What inspires you? For me, it can be anything, but my biggest inspiration comes from life—things that I’ve seen or experienced. In my latest WIP, which I just wrapped up last night, it’s about the WWII big band, brass and sass which, I’ve brought forward into 2012. In this story, my challenge was to make a trumpet player sexy. In order to do that, I had to research songs with trumpet solos, songs that at one time made women swoon.

Where did my inspiration come from? The Army color guard.

And....
Here.

One more for the road.



Have a great weekend!

I have a long list

Seize the Day by Avenged Sevenfold inspired Embrace the Moment.

Hell by Disturbed inspired all of my fallen angels and demon world build

Rolling in the Deep inspired Fever Pitch- yet to be written

MIA by Avenged Sevenfold inspire a nuntitled unwritten Military story that's not romantic ;P.

I Won't See you tonight - has a line at minute 6:30 in the song that inspired Atreayu's story. It's partially written. He was a prince who to save his father changed into a dark prince. Long convoluted story. But it reminds me of how do you tell your family and the ones you love not to worry. I was looking for raw emotion. below are the pasted lyrics The last line and the way M Shadows belts it out was the depth ofemotion I'd been missing.:P It's my third favorite song my them.

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and loved

Building up inside of me
A place so dark, so cold, I had to set me free
Don't mourn for me,
You're not the one to place the blame
As bottles call my name I won't see you tonight

Sorrow sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and most of all I loved
But I can't see myself that way
Please don't forget me or cry while I'm away

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
But I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

So far away, I'm gone.
Please don't follow me tonight
And while I'm gone everything will be alright

No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight
No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight

Any genre of Music, art, street names all give me inspiration. I have more but my brain is failing me lol!
