Music Monday – Strip Me – Natasha Bedingfield

Welcome to Music Monday! As many of you know, music contributes a great deal to my writing process. Whether it’s a song’s lyrics, beat, rhythm, or tone, I find myself constantly inspired by it.

writing-to-musicSo, I had a completely different song picked out for today’s Music Monday, but then I heard Natasha Bedingfield’s “Strip Me” on my way to work this morning and changed my mind.

Long ago, I was absolutely obsessed with this song. Then it faded off as I became obsessed with others. This morning was the first time I’d heard it in forever and I fell back in love with it. And I knew I had to share it with you!

NatashabeddingfeildStripMe“Strip Me” is a great song to listen to when you’re creating epiphany filled moments in your story. Or when your characters decide to take a stand for what they believe in. Seeing as I’m working on the end of my book, there have been many “epiphany” and “take a stand” moments, so this song hits home and inspires me to infuse the right tone and feeling while writing.

So if you’re looking for a song that’s energetic, heartfelt, and perfect for those revelation moments in your story, listen to “Strip Me” by Natasha Bedingfield.

What song(s) are you in love with right now? Which one(s) offer you inspiration? Let me know! I’m always searching for songs that motivate my writing.
