Taken from Sulz, my queen of memes. And she tagged me this time!
“Think of THE song that most inspires you to write, whether it gives you an idea for a story, script or just puts you into a better frame of mind AND/OR peek into the lyrics and find a verse that sums up the theme of whatever project it is you’re working on.
If possible, post a video of the song to convey to readers the full context of the song and the mood it puts you into. Finally, send the assignment to five other writers to do as well.”
I find this meme hard to do.
· There are people whose mood can be influenced by the music they hear, but this isn’t the case for me. The music that I like won’t work when I’m depressed, so I avoid it in attempts not to ruin it. So, no Dresden Dolls for me to lift my mood when I’m down. Instead, I tend to find a way to escape by surrounding myself with things that go along with my mood. It is easier to let things out then, and leave me, still depressed but not so emotionally constipated.
That said, I can’t think of any song that has inspired me to do something. Instead they are helpers… say I am already inspired, they can help set a mood on what I’m doing making the whole proccess fun.
Right now I’m feeling innocently silly and adventurous. I am writing this, a meme, and the music I’m listening to (Pretty in Pink-cover by Dresden Dolls) complements it, but wasn’t involved in causing me to do this.
So, lets talk about what DOES inspire me to write my posts. I guess it’s not that complicated… I usually have no plans, I just sit here and write. Sometimes I will get a bulb over my head, but the situations have been so diverse it’s hard to describe them. And sometimes I get inspiration from reading other blogs, like now. Well, now doesn’t count, because it’s a meme. (BTW, what’s going on with the alignment of my posts?)
