Tune-In Tuesday: My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light ’em Up)

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? 🙂 I’ve been in a writing funk for the past few months. While I tried and tried and tried to get out of this funk, it just didn’t work … at least not until I attended another Immersion Master Class with Margie Lawson. Turns out, being around other writers and talking about the funk I’d fallen into was exactly what I needed. *smiles* So for my first Tune-In Tuesday post back from my […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Titanium

Welcome back to another Tune-In Tuesday installment! Who doesn’t love a song about strength? About facing down the world and telling ’em that no matter how many insults they fire at you, breaking is not an option. 🙂 Today’s song conveys just that–“Titanium” by David Guetta, featuring Sia. Enjoy!     Happy Listening and Writing! Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind Tune-In Tuesday: Demons by Imagine Dragons Tune-In Tuesday: Unconditionally Tune-In Tuesday: Magic by Coldplay

Tune-In Tuesday: Let It Be

Welcome back to another Tune-In Tuesday installment! 😀 Today I wanted to go back a bit in music history to visit with my favorite band of all time. The Beatles We each have that one song, or that one band, movie, TV show, or toy from our childhood that instantly plants a smile on our lips and warmth in our hearts. The Beatles are that band for me. Their music was the first I can recall ever hearing. They were […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Scotty Doesn’t Know

Welcome back to Tune-In Tuesday! This week I’m highlighting a song that always puts me a good mood. “Scotty Doesn’t Know” by Lustra, made famous by the movie Europtrip. 😀 No matter how bad your day is going, this song will never fail to make you smile because things could always be worse. Your significant other could break-up with you after your graduation. You could then find out via a rock song at a graduation party–in front of all of your friends–that your […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Covers & Re-Makes (Feeling Good)

Music, novels, movies, and TV shows. These modes of entertainment have plenty in common, but for today we’re going to focus on one in particular: The Re-Make As writers we hear quite often that there are no true original plots, only fresh twists and takes on old, existing plots. This is true, and it got me thinking on how truly original most music is these days. You can turn on the radio and listen to a brand new single and […]

Tune-In Tuesday: What The Water Gave Me

This week’s song, from Florence + The Machines, is courtesy of New York Times Bestselling Author Deborah Harkness and her YouTube playlist for the heroine of her All Souls Trilogy, Diana Bishop. Many writers have a time in their lives when they’ve unintentionally walked away from writing. For some it’s school, for others it’s family, and for a few it’s simply the need to walk away and refill their creativity well. Ten years ago, I stopped writing due to the overwhelming workload at college. Then when […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Thirty Seconds to Mars

In honor of their new album’s U.S. release, today I’m featuring Thirty Seconds to Mars. 😀 Jared, Shannon, and Tomo really, really laid it down with their latest album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams. While listening to the new tunes this morning, I couldn’t help but feel as though they’d been secretly tapping into my writing life. Between the lyrics–“This is the fight to the death, our holy war. A new romance, a Trojan whore” (from Conquistador)–and the musicality of the […]

Tune-In Tuesday: I’m Not Alright

I’ve been a Shinedown kick lately, so today’s song comes to us from … you guessed it, Shinedown. 😀 This song is from their latest album, Amaryllis — which I highly recommend for immediate purchase and download. Have a listen of “I’m Not Alright”: Still not convinced that this album is worth immediate download? Listen to more tracks from the album over on Grooveshark. 🙂 *Tune-In Tuesday is a weekly post for musical sharing. Whatever song’s keeping you sane or […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Panic Station

Welcome back to Tune-In Tuesday! Today’s musical choice comes from one my favorite bands of all time, MUSE. This is their latest single, Panic Station.  Last week I got an alert from YouTube that a new vid had been posted by the band, and boy was I ever not prepared for this video. LOL! Don’t get me wrong, this video is awesome and these guys clearly had a fantastic time filming. But talk about psychedelic, man. 😉 Hope you enjoy! […]
