Monday's Muse~Icy River
Last week I worked on another new chapter that's going into Channeler novel #2. I'm kind of surprised by how much new material I'm putting in to this one, but in a good way. The inspiration that's coming to me will make the novel richer and the characters deeper so I'm happy. Already I love the story more! It didn't hurt that I got to look to this chilly picture for inspiration while the temperatures have been in the eighties and nineties here. In this chapter Eren learns a tough lesson and faces and even tougher truth.
I just finished reading Gone by Michael Grant and loved it. It's not a novel for everyone as it is very dark, but that made it right up my alley. In fact, I haven't read enough dark stuff lately so I devoured this book. They weren't kidding when they compared it to 'if Stephen King had written Lord of The Flies.' Now I'm getting my adult paranormal fix by reading Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank.
As for music, I'm enjoying the latest Dropkick Murphy's cd, a lot. But then, I'm a huge Dropkick Murphy's fan. How about you peeps, what inspired you last week?
