I’m sitting on my deck this lovely spring afternoon, wondering where April went. Tempus fugit.
A few weeks ago, I found myself completely stuck on my latest WIP. Guardians is a young adult fantasy romance, and it’s only in the beginning stages. I mean, I’m 40,000 words in, and I have no idea how it ends. So after taking a week or two to work on other things, I came back to Guardians with fresh eyes, and a refreshed playlist.
Sometimes all it takes is a song.
In this latest installment of Music to Write By, I’m sharing an artist whose work could pretty much be the soundtrack to Guardians. Ruelle is a singer-songwriter whose music has been used all over the shop. Her work is sweeping, cinematic, and dramatic. Perfect for writing young adult romance. Here I’m sharing “The Other Side.”
I just love it. I listen to it so often my kids have the words memorized.
My musical sources are often soundtracks from films. The Marvel Universe is an excellent place to find inspiring tracks. Here’s one of my favorites:
It’s called “Bridge and Love’s Burning” from the Spider-Man Far From Home Soundtrack. I mean, is this not just fun and sweet? Perfection. Thank you very much, Michael Giacchino.
That’s it from my corner of the woods. Back soon with more music.
Take care, lovely readers.
