Music inspires us, lifts us up, and touches us on so many levels. And one particular song by Annie Lennox has inspired my current WIP about vampires. The song is called Love Song For A Vampire and you can see the video for the song here. This song, and especially the intense emotions evoked from both the beat and Annie's riveting acting in the video has helped to inspire and motivate me to write my current work in progress.
Isn't it amazing where we get our inspiration for writing from? This current project came about because of this song and video. Frozen was inspired, believe it or not, from a single photograph of the Norse goddess of vengeance, Skadi. And The Lighthouse was inspired by my love of lighthouses and the many stories of lighthouse keepers mysteriously vanishing over the centuries.
My Gods At Work series, which for right now I can't talk too much about though I will be able to as of September 1st, was inspired by my love of greek myths and the banking crisis. I started to wonder what if the banking problems affected not just us, but the gods as well and they were forced to come down to earth and work.
Inspiration can be found anywhere and everywhere. All you have to do is look at something and ask that one magical question...what if? Anyway, I hope you like the video I used as inspiration. I'm also posting one of the pics that has inspired my heroine for my new WIP.
