Greetings, Kittens!

I'm experiencing a bit of melancholy right now, so I'm using my favorite mood booster--music. Don't try to find any rhyme or reason to the song mixture, just take in the variety. *grin* Here are 13 Random Songs from my many playlists*.

Enjoy.

Greetings, Kittens!

I'm still in the midst of revisions and thought I'd share 13 songs from my various writing playlists. I have about thirty different lists that I listen to, so to narrow down my choices we'll make this is the semi-retro edition and use older songs only.

Enjoy.

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off so stepped on
You're not the only one
Refusing to back down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so filthy
So dirty so fucked up
If you feel so walked on
So painful so pissed off
You're not the only one
Refusing to go down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Okay, I admit that in part this post is being made to meet my one week quota. It does however reflect back on writing because music is essential to the creative process for me.

The right playlist can mean the difference between a four page day and a twenty page day of work (and yes, I mean twenty usable pages). Right now that right playlist is ONE X by Three Days Grace. Yes, the entire album! I can only say that about a handful of cds I own, so every time I add to the list I'm impressed and must pester everyone I know to support the album and the band.

At least three songs from the album will appear in the new book I'm working on. Unfortunately, or fortunately as the case may be, the "new book" is not the picking back up of book two I had hoped for. Yesterday spawned a brand new story with vampires that will appear in my Shifter world which is convenient, but the first story in which they are fleshed out will be entirely separate from the Dante series. Ah the joys of inspiration from all quarters.

It makes everything I watch, read, stumble across and half-remember from childhood fodder for new worlds. I've come across blogs of people who read two to three books a week as well as write or edit and/or attend a day job. I don't know how they do it. Everything I read has to have enough time for proper staring off in space as some idea spawns a new way of considering things and I make mental or physical notes.

It probably says a lot about me but 99% of the time what comes to mind is how I would do something differently. Yeah. I know.

Anyway, the above song starts out the new story. A nice underground club called 3rd Shift (which has all sorts of neat connotations) where it's set up to cater to those with night jobs and thus is open during the early hours after dawn. Yep, now you see the interesting connotation of a club open after dawn in which a vampire comes in.

I shall say no more. Less because I don't want to share and more because its a bit torturous for me. See, I swore off writing until Wednesday to give myself a break. I did this on Saturday before the story struck me Sunday and I was stuck making notes and waiting for the days to pass. I could lift the rest break due to unforseen circumstances but I know myself. There will always be unforseen circumstances so its best to just power through and keep my notes going.

Ah, but let me cease and desist in a timely manner, this post wasn't to lament my unscratched itch to write. It was started to find out what music is currently rocking your fantasy worlds and to get word on some of your favorite albums as recommendations to write to.

Come on, cough 'em up and share the love.

Ramble done.
