First up, we have the Insecure Writer's Support Group!

My A to Z Theme this month is music, so in keeping with that theme, I am sharing with you a song that I think most artists can relate to at least some of the time.
It's pretty much my current mindset. The sad truth is that I have been besieged by confident-sucking vampires (Yay!) and singing this song (repeatedly) occasionally makes me feel a little better.
So I am sharing it with you.
Should you choose to listen to it, just be aware that the song is NSFW. It does contain some language that polite society would consider rude. (Which really just makes me love it more. I am incredibly mature that way.)
Key Lyrics: (No worries...I didn't select any of the rude ones. Just the inspirational ones.)
You have a story to tell/ pull your novel out of that sock drawer!/ You have a painting to paint/ you best paint and then paint some more!
In fly the vampires (oh my the vampires)/ then die the vampires/ filling you with life, creativity/ all that your life should be/ out go the vampires/ Die, vampires, die!
And now for something not really all that different...

My theme this month is Soundtrack Songs. Through out April, I will be sharing with you selections from the playlists I create to accompany my novels, the lyrics that landed the song on the list, and perhaps a story snippet or two.
Song #1—Equinox by Floater
This is the opening song to my YA urban fantasy, Solstice. I just love the mood it establishes.
From the swinging of the axe/ to the swaying of the hips/ it's such a tangled web we weave/ from the soul to the lips
Song #2—(The) End by Levi Weaver
This is one of two songs in contention for a Second Nature scene, toward the end of the novel, where the characters have to re-define the depths of misery. (Sorry, characters...).
When the butterfly is faded/ and the beast shows you the earth/ when the bird has died/ somewhere in mid-flight/ and you crash down to the earth
When you're incomplete/ will you try your feet/ or will you find your knees/ and admit defeat
Sorry for the over-long post today, but I swear I'm done now. (At least until tomorrow...) Thanks for stopping by!
