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.
Good news, everyone: I’m in the groove again! This past weekend, I set aside every and all distraction and wrote…and wrote and wrote and wrote. In fact, I was so into my manuscript, I had to force myself to stop yesterday to run errands and get out of the house for a few hours.
One of the things that helped me get pumped up and back on track was listening to “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” by Dropkick Murphys.
This song captures the essence of the chapters I’m currently working on: revenge, betrayal, anger, terror. It also lends excellent motivation for when I’m choreographing any fight scenes, and during this past weekend, I worked on two that were brimming with kicks, chops, and punches.
So, if you’re looking for a song that inspires “Ahh!”, “Grrr…”, and “hi-yah!”, check out “I’m Shipping Up To Boston!”
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.
