Guest Post

By Lucy Swing

Thank you Cassie for having me over today.

Writers need a muse, and said muses can be a little bitchy at times, keeping you waiting when you are ready for a writing session or showing up in the middle of your sleep. Mine loves to come out when I have music on. One song and you get the story of a lifetime, a love story, a break-up, sorrow, all of the emotions you can think of.

I am not going to lie, books also help my muse’s selfish attitude, but as often as music does, so below is a short soundtrack of some of the songs I listened to constantly while re-writing and revising Feathermore.

The Pretty Reckless – Make me Wanna Die

Within Temptation – Dark Wings

Plumb – Cut

Within Temptation – The Howling

30 seconds to Mars – This is war

Within Temptation – Jillian

The Pretty Reckless – Just Tonight

Now, there are probably a 100 more songs that I replayed once or twice, but nothing like these. Anything by Within Temptation is gold for my ears, so you can usually find it in the background when I write.

At the moment though, I am a little obsessed with “Safe and Sound” by Taylor Swift, It is such a sad lullaby. What song/s do you have on replay? Tell me, I am always looking for new music. I am currently writing the second book on the Feathermore Trilogy, so I am open for new music.

Title: Feathermore
Author: Lucy Swing
When the one thing you live for is taken from you, do you let it go or do you fall?
Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?
Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.
But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?

Sometimes I wish I could listen to music while writing and have it inspire me, but it usually just distracts me. I start listening to the song and stop thinking about words. If the song has lyrics, I'll start singing along too and then I really don't get any writing done. That said, I do have a few songs that after I wrote a scene, the song matched up. Johnny Cash's Hurt, a track off the Inception soundtrack, and a song by Death Cab For Cutie that I can not spell. lol
