One thing that has always motivated me is music. And not even when it comes to writing. I’ve always been a music love, having been a member of the school band from 4th grade to my senior year of high school. And I always have to have something playing in the background, whether I’m driving my car, taking a shower, or just hanging out around the house.
When I write, it’s not much different, though I tend to let the music play to what’s going on rather than remain in the background. A HUGE example of this is Two Thousand Years.
Initially, the premise for my novel was inspired by Billy Joel’s Two Thousand Years from his River of Dreams album. It’s a little-known song but something about it called to me for yeas, and when the time came for me to start something new for NaNoWriMo in 2014, that was the first true inspiration I had.
