It has been a long time since I have posted anything. I have been in the throes of revision amidst the depression of editorial criticism. It’s been creatively positive, however, and I write on. This song keeps running through my noggin as I contemplate the new directions and nuances of my characters and plot. To be honest, I am not even sure why yet. It works. It inspires me. Enjoy!
I just love how music inspires me, and so often while I am driving. I can write a whole scene in my mind as I am driving to or from work. This particular song is edgy and creates a mood of redemption and possibility and is helping me to write the last few chapters.
I can’t wait until I have the book done, so I can print it off and start editing it on paper and in real time, rather than back and forth as I write out of sequence. It is interesting to me how the story unfolds for me, the writer. Sometimes I feel like I am the reader and I don’t know what is going to happen next and then, suddenly, there it is appearing on my computer screen.
I must post another excerpt soon!
I am listening to this over and over as I am revising. This song really captures Arc’s mood as he reluctantly goes back to Celeste’s life and tries to wrestle the humanity from his soul.
