Anyway, the year's kind of winding down, so I don't have a lot of things lined up for the blog. Today I thought I'd just post something I've seen circulating around the blogs lately: my Top 5 Writing Albums from this year. I figure, hey, I like music, you like music, we all like music. So I'm sharing my writing inspiration albums with you. Hope you like them :)
In no particular order:
1. Sigh No More, Mumford & Sons
Little Lion Man was inspiration for a major scene in TICK-TOCK.
2. The String Quartet Tribute to Coheed and Cambria
I love the original band/album, but I found this instrumental tribute album to be awesome for writing. Viva la Coheed.
3. Barton Hollow, The Civil Wars
There's just so much rich story material here. Love the folk/rock/country vibe.
4. Doctor Who Series 5 Soundtrack, Murray Gold
Come on, I write nerdy science fiction/steampunk. Of course this fits perfectly.
5. Middle Cyclone, Neko Case
I was apparently on a big folk/alt rock and instrumental kick this year. This album felt like a bunch of stories in song form to me. Loved it.
