Monday's Muse~Frozen Islands

It seems appropriate that my muse has taken me to a frozen island just as the weather has decided to change and remind us that winter is around the corner. In this week's chapter my main character discovers that the path he has chosen is controversial enough that it could cost him his life if he isn't careful. Despite the dangers he realizes it was what he was meant to do. Though I outlined the novel it continues to surprise me with where it takes me and I love that.

The book that's feeding my muse this week is Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus. From the very first sentence this book yanked me in and wouldn't let me go. I love the main character's voice, the setting, everything! I can't wait to get deeper into it.

The song that inspired me this week was The Sting Of The Bumblebee by Manowar. This is the first novel I will have written that has its own soundtrack of sorts! This is so much fun that now I'll have to put together a playlist for every book I write!

Are you reading or writing anything great this week? What's inspiring you?


  1. Hi, Heather. And it is fun that a book can take you places you don't expect--whether you are reading or writing it!

    Just working on my edits before I send this thing off.

    Keep up the good work--on your book and blog!

  2. It is fun! Best of luck on finalizing those edits and on the submission process Lorelei! My fingers are crossed for you!

  3. It's really hard to read anything after MOCKINGJAY. The same goes for writing, but I'm forging ahead anyhow. I think I'm finally getting through that mucky middle and now that I'm gaining steam, I'm much happier.

  4. Ah the mucky middle, it is tough isn't it Lisa? It is really starting to sound like I need to get up to speed and read Mockingjay!
