Monday's Muse~Main Character Inspiration
I finished reading Blood Promise by Rachelle Mead and wow did it wrap up good! The second half of the book more than made up for the slow first half. I loved it and am definitely getting the next one. In the mean time I'm taking a break from reading the young adult genre and have picked up Grave Witch by Kalayna Price, an adult urban fantasy. After a great chat with the author over on The Knight Agency's blog I had to pick up one of her books. She is a fantastic, fun lady and I'm glad I did because this book has sucked me in from the first page!
As for the music that has been feeding my muse, this week it is Mairead Nesbitt's 3rd Movement. Don't make that face at me, click on it and check it out! What inspired you this week? How are my NaNoWriMo buddies doing on your word counts?
That music is indeed beautiful. Thanks for pointing me in its magical direction. I have two MC's : one an undead Texas ranger, the other a 13 year street kid with only attitude to keep him safe from nightmare.ReplyDelete
There is a picture of John Wayne walking with a collie in the midst of Apache desert : that was my inspiration for Sam McCord. My inspiration for his ward, Victor Standish, was the thought of what a neat character it would be to have a 13 year old street kid with the charm and attitude of Tony Stark of the IRON MAN films.
The inspiration for joining my two MC's together was thinking of how interesting it would be to meld AUNTIE MAME with THE TWILIGHT ZONE.
My inspirations are a maze when you get right down to it -- is that where the word "a-mazing" came from? Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Heather
Great post and even better post. Thanks for sharing, Heather.ReplyDelete

Love the photo! She reminds me of a lot of you, actually. And I love the way the light streams down into the clearing. Very inspiring and magical! Like your outstanding writing!
I'm glad you liked Mairead Roland. Wow, those are excellent points of inspiration! I love that your inspiration is a maze, that makes it that much more fascinating.ReplyDelete
Thank you Renee! You're very welcome. :)ReplyDelete
You are so sweet Jule, thank you so much!ReplyDelete
Beautiful picture, Heather. Magical and inspiring. You've inspired me to try to find pictures and music to stimulate my writing. I've always just pictured it all in my head, but love your approach.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad I've inspired you to find more inspiration Linda! LOL! Music and pictures really do help.ReplyDelete
Heather, She is beautiful and this is the perfect picture! What inspired me this week? Someone who said, "Sure I'll help. I'll do whatever it takes."ReplyDelete
Now those are words to live by!

(i didn't make a face!) and the book suggestions. can't wait to read them! christyReplyDelete
This week's inspiration comes from a short work week and looking forward to a visit with my sister from Seattle. :-)ReplyDelete
Those are great words to live by Karlene, truly inspiring! That sounds like someone we could all learn from.ReplyDelete
I hope the picture does help you out Christy! I'm so sorry to hear you didn't get any writing down this week. Some weeks are like that. Since you didn't make the face you just might like Mairead's music!ReplyDelete
Those sound like wonderfully reasons for inspiration Shannon!ReplyDelete
Oh, the picture is lovely. I too am often inspired by art, pictures and always by music.ReplyDelete
I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving, Heather. :)
I guess art begets art Lola. :) Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I hope you have a wonderful holiday.ReplyDelete
Wow, I love this picture.ReplyDelete
I'm re-reading SPIRIT BOUND right now in preparation for FINAL SACRIFICE. Then everything is put on hold until I finish the book. :D
Amazing isn't it Stina? I can hardly wait to read Spirit Bound! It's on my wish list! By the time I do the last one should be out.ReplyDelete
That picture is so evocative and romantic! The book sounds great too. Oh boy, another for my TBR list, I guess!ReplyDelete
Thank you Lydia, what a wonderful compliment! I'm all smiles now. :-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful pic! I found a good one for my MC as well! He's so cute, I can't stop looking at it though. ;DReplyDelete
LOL! That's perfect Lisa! Talk about inspiration.ReplyDelete
Amazing picture, it feels so surreal and magical. I loved Blood Promise and cannot wait for Final Sacrifice. Have a great Thanksgiving! :DReplyDelete
Love this picture, looks like it would be a great inspiration!ReplyDelete
That's exactly what I thought Brenda! Though there is nothing magical in the picture it just seems to evoke it. VA is an awesome series isn't it?! Happy Thanksgiving to you too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Alissa. It really has been!ReplyDelete
