I love music! I love listening to it when I drive around, running errands. I listen to music when I clean (I crank it up and it motivates me in my house duties). I especially love it when I write. Certain songs can create a mood, and there are many times I will find myself listening to the same song over and over and over because it helps me to stay in the moment I'm writing, whether it be sad or high paced action.
But there are a couple of songs that every time I hear them, remind me of one of my characters from the Zombie West Series. So I decided to share them with you :)
This first song reminds me of Elisabeth "Red" in WANTED: Dead or Undead
But in SURVIVOR ROUNDUP, I think of Elisabeth "Red" when I hear this song
And this song:
Trace (from both WANTED and SURVIVOR) is more like this:
Now this one reminds me of them both. (I love, love, love this video--SO COOL!)
And this one always gets me the mood to write about cowboys killin' zombies :) :) :)
So now your turn :) Either put a link to the Youtube video in you comment below, or write up a blog post and include a link. I'll pop over and totally check it out. What songs remind you of your characters? It's a great way to know a character a little more :)
