I thought I’d share a look into one area of inspiration for my stories – music. This song spurred a short story. The Eagles are my favorite band, with the One of These Nights album at the top of the list. However, I found myself immersed in the lyrics of The Long Run album where I found King of Hollywood. I listened over and over again, the song speaking to my creative senses. A story developed in my head and The Broker was born.
I’ve had one other story that emerged from the lyrics of a song. The Lady of Fulton Meadows grew from the depths of Metallica’s Until It Sleeps.
Music has been an integral part of my life. It feeds the wellspring of my emotions. I ride its melodies, embracing the stories and melodic tunes. From rock to religious and classical too, music is a part of me and speaks to my soul. From its depths is often born creativity, imagination, and so much more
What inspires you? What speaks to your soul?
