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 […]

Song of the Week: Safe & Sound by Taylor Swift featuring The Civil Wars

We’re *almost* there! March 23rd is just around the corner, and in celebration of the fact that we don’t have too much longer to go before we all head to the theatre (may more than once?), this week’s song is the first one to be announced as part of the soundtrack (and I REALLY can’t wait to get my hands on it). Hope you enjoy! Happy Reading and Writing, everyone!!! Melinda Related posts: Song of the Week: My Immortal by […]

Song of the Week: Turning Page by Sleeping at Last

Happy Monday, everyone! One of the best things I can say about the Twilight franchise is that the movie soundtracks never disappoint.  I’ve found many great artists through these compilations.  This week’s song is straight from their latest movie release, Breaking Dawn, Part One. Hope you enjoy the beautiful, heart-warming melody and words of this week’s song, Turning Page. Happy reading and writing, everyone!!

Song of the Week: Monday Morning by Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie is one of those bands where you can write and edit to every song they’ve ever recorded. This week’s song is one that I listened to practically all day Sunday while I was polishing up the last bit of my short story, plotting out the remainder of my NaNo MS, doing the laundry, and cooking chicken and pastry.  Regardless of what you’re doing, it’s just great background music! Period. I highly suggest picking up their latest […]

Song of the Week: Hello Cold World by Paramore

I believe it’s no secret that one of my favorite bands is Paramore…hence my choice for this week’s song: Hello Cold World! This is one of four new songs the band recorded recently (one being Monster that was a previous song of the week).  This particular song was chosen with more reason than the fact of it being written/performed by one of my favorite bands.  This particular group has been through a lot over the past twelve or so months, so for them to put out a song like this just […]

NaNoWriMo Check-In & The Song of the Week: Glycerine by Bush

Hello and ‘Happy Monday’ dear friends!  With two days left of NaNoWriMo I can *officially* say that I have surpassed the 50,000 wordcount goal with 51,130 words – and it has been validated!  *throws confetti*  Now I just have another 40,000 or so words to go before this draft is officially completed and ready to be run through the ringer – otherwise known as the editing process. *smile* *bites nails* *tries to smile again* Without further ado, I can officially […]

NaNoWriMo Song of the Week: Spotlight by Mutemath

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting several fellow NaNo participants at a write-in. Now, for those of you who know me know that I have a weekend routine that I like to stick to – part of that being the fact that I prefer to stay home on Sundays and write while doing the laundry. But I figured, what the hell….I’ll be going for three hours and will be doing exactly the same thing I’d be doing if I […]

Musical Monday: NaNoWriMo Playlist & The Song of the Week

It’s absolutely incredible how fast time flies. Here we are on October 31st, one day away from the start of NaNoWriMo. I’ve been doing some super prep work these past two weeks – researching locations and backgrounds on a few new characters (I think that’s as close to plotting as I get these days), getting Scrivener and all of my research set up on my PC so I can hit the ground running tomorrow (after the day job, of course), and […]

Song of the Week: Country Song by Seether

This is just a fun song to do almost anything to – whether it’s write, dance, clean, or travel, there’s something about this song that makes it fun (and the video’s a little entertaining as well). Enjoy!
