I started rereading The Kindrily last night to see if I could make some "get to the action quicker" changes in the beginning. It's been a couple weeks since I've read it. I fell in love all over again.
I'm a song junkie. My love of music and lyrics is hard wired into my soul. As I was reading a Nathan scene (my oh-so-lovable secondary protagonist) the old David Crosby song HERO played in my head over and over. I don't know if it was the song or Nathan that gave me goosebumps but a few lines from that oldie but goody summarize my love for my book and Nathan. So I thought I'd share.
"It was one of those great stories that you can't put down at night
The hero knew what he had to do and he wasn't afraid to fight...
And the reason that she loved him
Was the reason I loved him too
And he never wondered what was right or wrong
He just knew, he just knew."
Sigh. Such a great song. What about you? Do you have certain songs that relate to or inspire your writing?
PS...Yes that's what Nathan looks like. Different tattoo but he could easily be thought of as an angel so it works :)
