Monday's Muse~The Dawning
The outlining and character development stage does give me a lot of time to read though, which I love! I just finished The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell. Oh wow people, RUN out (or click on the title) and get this book quick! It is part historical, part paranormal/magical realism, and all awesome. Saundra makes me strive to write better and reminds me of why I love to read. The Vespertine is beautifully written and that is putting it mildly. Now I'm reading From Dark Places by E.J. Newman and it is filled with eerie, dark short stories that I'm devouring as I wait for her debut novel this July. Be sure to click on the title and check it out too!
As for music inspiration I bought the new Avril Lavigne CD Goodbye Lullaby and I'm sorry to say it doesn't have her usual spark. It's good, don't get me wrong, it just isn't as edgy I'm used to from her. What inspired you last week? Any new books you've read that you enjoyed? What about music?
This photo is one I took in Hawaii in 2009 while on a catamaran cruise. The sunrises and sunsets there are some of the most inspiring I have ever seen.
