I scrolled through the music on my iPod, searching for the perfect song to match my mood. I selected the tune I knew would work best, and placed the buds into my ears.
Block chords on a piano began to play before the bass of the drum increased the tempo. A tap on the snare produced the rhythm, and a heart-pounding fill introduced the chorus.
The music streaming into my system spurred my imagination into creating scenes relative to my story line. The lyrics held meaning to my characters’ emotions and struggles. I drew on that energy, and visioned the life they were destined to live.
Music inspired my mind into creating something of value, and I realised my characters were more than a puppet in my novel. They were as real as I’d let them be, and their story was yelling at me via musical stylings.
Music influenced my writing, as it did my life. It was ingrained on my body as a reminder to create my own melody on the journey I took every day.
My personal composition became my motivation.
Nature’s Destiny theme song. Fire and Fury by Skillet. Enjoy and have a great week!

What a great post! I wasn’t familiar with the song but I really like it, so thank you for introducing me to something awesome. And “ingrained on my body as a reminder to create my own melody” is beautiful … love it!
Thanks Roger. I’m glad you liked it, and the song too. When I first heard it, I just knew it was the right tone for my novel. Yeah, it literally is as well! 🙂
