From My Writing Playlist

Got a request to recommend a good ‘rock opera’ song. Really it doesn’t get any better than Avantasia and in particular this song! The Great Mystery has everything; chorus, amazing instrumentals, guest performance by metal legend Bob Catley from Magnum… oh yeah! This has to be on my list! When to listen:  I’ll give you a hint, skip to 9:19. Then picture your favorite Disney … Read More From My Writing Playlist

This song fills me with a great amount of joy. It’s debatable whether or not this is a Christmas or New Years song, but I hear it at both, so it counts. I used to rock out to this on a guitar with a bunch of friends. So I have a lot of fond memories. When to Listen: Ending, when writing after the final fight. … Read More From My Writing (Christmas!) Playlist

  Again, not a huge fan, but that’s partially because I’m not a huge Tom Hanks fan, but it’s a nice movie if you can deal with him being… almost every adult role in it?

When your character is in the middle of a question, perhaps trying to reach the first destination. Readers, Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc?

I can’t believe I’m doing this…   You’re a stronger person than I am if you can watch this video and still take this band seriously. All I’m going to say… When to listen: DON’T!!!! Hahahaha Just kidding. This is a psych out song. Don’t listen to it while writing. You kind of have to watch the video to really get the full effect. It’s … Read More Off My Writing Playlist

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am NO fan of Jim Carrey and the abomination that is his rendition of How The Grinch Stole Christmas. That being said, this song is actually pretty decent. When to listen: This is a quest building song, when the hero first sees what lies ahead of them and has to make the decision on what they’re … Read More From My Writing (Christmas!) Playlist

Hehehe… you knew after ‘Fairy tale in New York City’, that this one was going to make the list. When to Listen: Don’t, not when writing. Stop writing, then listen.
