Inspirational Music

Inspirational Music

Here are three songs that have inspired past and future stories:

This one inspired a dystopian novel I’ll eventually start outlining. I’ve titled it A Girl Named Shallot.

This inspired a short story I had published when I was 19 in a former magazine called The Oddville Press. It was called “Dead Poet’s Pendulum.”

This one inspired another novel idea, one I would like to write in verse form, like Ellen Hopkins does with her books. No title so far. Also, this is an English fandub. The original is “Magia” by Kalafina.

These are all awesome songs I hope you’ll listen to.

If you’re a writer, what music has inspired you? If you’re a reader, have you ever thought of a playlist in your head that would fit the book you’re reading?

Blog Schedule

Blog Schedule

I am finally going to get on a true schedule from now on for my blogging. Here’s what you can expect:

Monday: picture quote from When Stars Die.

Tuesday: serious topic on an issue relating to my personal life.

Wednesday: three songs that have inspired me as an author.

Thursday: a writing-related piece, whether it’s my thoughts on writing or even a book I loved or disliked.

Friday: this one’s a strange one, but since I love fashion and make-up, I’ve decided to dedicate a day blogging about my favorite fashions and critiquing make-up I loved or didn’t love–it is a facet of me, after all.

Saturday: a poem.

Sunday: guest blog post.

So this is the weekly agenda from now on. Expect a post later today on three songs that have inspired me.

Also, since I am wanting to do a guest blog post every Sunday, if you are interested, please e-mail me. I want the post to relate to my blog somehow, so send me a short summary of what you’d like to write about. It will also be on a first come, first serve basis. E-mail me at

Thank you!
