Hallelujah! I’ve finally figured out how to insert videos in my posts. I’m fairly certain most writers use music to inspire them as they write. I am no different. And from my experience I’ve learned that I don’t pick the music that inspires me, the music picks me.
I’ve always loved the band Within Temptation. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of symphonic rock, but Within Temptation has always been one of my favorites. As I wrote, I discovered that many of this band’s songs captured the way I was feeling as I wrote.
And of course, Ed Sheeran was on repeat for most of my writing days.
I still haven’t found the right soundtrack for my current writing project, but here are the songs that carried me through the first.
I love this song. It’s so powerful and I always imagined Mara’s strength as I listened to it.
This is one of my favorites and the video is absolutely gorgeous. Once again, I found this video really captured Mara’s struggle through the book.
This is another beautiful video. I usually listened to this while writing as Malcolm.
I am a HUGE Ed Sheeran fan, and so it’s no surprise that this song always brought me to Mara and Corbin
This one always reminded me of Corbin
