Tune-In Tuesday: Follow Me by Muse

Yes, I’ve been absent for quite a while. But I have a really great excuse. And I’m returning with music. 😉 I won MCRW’s Melody of Love Contest in the Paranormal category, and with that win I received a FULL manuscript request from an editor. SQUEE! So now I’m on an oh so damn tight deadline. So I’ll most likely continue to be in and out online for another few weeks. So…now for the song of the week. 🙂 Enjoy! […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind

We’re taking it back this week on Tune-In Tuesday to an old favorite by Boston: Peace of Mind. The good thing about writing playlists is you can have such a variety of music–from Boston to Thirty Seconds to Mars, from The Beatles to Muse, from Madonna to Evanescence. I, for one, really enjoy the good vibes and inability to sit still when bands such as Boston, AC/DC, and Foreigner come on the radio. Enjoy! What about you? Are there any […]

Tine-In Tuesday: The 2nd Law–Isolated System

Welcome back to another installment of Tune-In Tuesday! This week, we’re visited the world of my current work-in-progress, RETRIBUTION, with a song from Muse called “Isolated System”. For those of us who’ve seen the movie World War Z, this song is going to sound eerily familiar. This song is not only the opening music for the zombie-flick, but it played throughout the film, mostly during transitional scenes. Enjoy     Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind Tune-In Tuesday: Follow Me by […]

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: 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! […]

Song of the Week: Sing for Absolution by Muse

Happy Monday, everyone!! This particular song is a go-to whenever I have a hard time getting the muse the cooperate. For instance: I sat down to write this past Saturday and the muse decided he would not stick around after I got started.  I turned this song on, set it to repeat, closed my eyes,  listened for a couple of rounds, and poof! There he was standing next to me, whiskey in hand, ready to continue from where we’d left […]

This Week In Favs……….

10) “8 Pieces of Advice About Writing Worth Listening To” by Lisa Hall-Wilson on Girls with Pens. We’ve all heard this advice before, but we can always use a reminder of the best writing tips out there – ex: Keep Writing and Show Don’t Tell. I’ll be the first to admit that I keep a list similar to this on the wall behind my writing desk. Do you? 9) “The Art of Stringing ‘Em Along” by Katie Ganshert. As writers, […]

This Week In Favs……….

10) “The Big Post of Querying” by Kat Zhang on The Katacomb.. This particular post was in response to a question posed to Kat in regards to how she went about querying – which is a daunting task that I think all aspiring authors tend to get the heebe-jeebes about (I know I do). I love Kat’s honesty in her postings. It’s incredibly refreshing and it’s encouraging to hear that within two months of querying, she found herself an agent. […]
