Today, I heard a song that inspired my muse. In fact, an entire scene played out in my mind to the tune of "A Familiar Taste of Poison" by Halestorm (see "Mythic Soundtrack" on this VERY blog page). The lyrics and music are so powerful that I listened over and over again, just to make sure I didn't miss any detail of the scene in my mind.
This inspired me to create a soundtrack for my series. A playlist of songs that inspire different scenes in my stories for that pick-me-up when my muse grows silent.
Do you have a particular playlist that sparks your creativity? What awakens your muse?
