So it’s actually Thursday and I’m Blogging ahead. I’m at a scene of my story and there’s a town on fire. Went on YouTube to research and sadly didn’t see much except the California fires…which is no good because too depressing since it’s real life. It was frustrating for me that there wasn’t like a fantasy-style fire wave or something like that. In all the movies and video games in the world, it’s hard to imagine I couldn’t find anything on YouTube. If you guys have some research material to suggest, please hit me up.
So to build up the emotional fire and get you ready for another week of writing, working or whatever, here is some musical fire for your soul instead. May it burn your imagination and set ashes of words in it’s wake.
Edit: I’m happy to say the fire scene went very well. I’m two chapters past that now and closing in on the end. Just a few more scenes. I hope to finish by the end of this month, woop!
1. Kasabian – Fire
If you’re not familiar with the band, get yourself familiar. They’re friggin’ awesome!
2. The Prodigy – Firestarter
A classic techno song if I ever heard of one! I love most songs by the Prodigy but I was less impressed with their last CD. Their Fat of the Land CD is one of my ultimate favorite ‘records’ of all times.
3. Elvis – Burning Love
Come on, King of Rock n’ Roll! Not to mention he’s BFF’s with Sebastian Barkley. True story. So make yourself a bacon sandwich or veggie bacon sandwich and enjoy this classic!
And for added cuteness, Lilo and Stitch style! Cuz Ohana Means Family….
Inspiring Soundtracks to Write to:
1. Fire and Regeneration -Wendy and Lisa
If this doesn’t get you inspired, nothing will. I used to love Heroes but then after they got rid of Adam I stopped caring about it lol. The first three seasons were epic though.
Prepare to let your muse evolve:
2. Patrick Doyle – The Goblet of Fire
From HP 4 movie, this piece is dark and mysterious and hopefully inspirational.
3. Volcano Soundtrack
For Johnny Lee Pwns fans everywhere…rejoice!
“Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.”
“Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself”
“There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.”
Vincent van Gogh
So that’s it for this week kids. I’m still on hiatus for the interviews, but decided to blog my progress and writing journey still. Interviews will continue in June! So consider this the Spring Break of Life Muse Coffee.
