If anyone were to ask me what my muse is for the Dragonfly Temple Chronicles, I would say music. I listen to it every day, without fail. I even have a Spotify list you can listen to with all the music that inspires my scenes and stories.
I suppose all the other senses also contribute, but not as powerfully as music. I often burn incense when I write. I have a collection of images that resemble the characters living inside my head. But music is the one element that evokes deep powerful emotions and play out scene-by-scene the chapters I am writing.
No one ever asks me what my muse is. Probably because I don’t talk to many other writers other than my husband and adopted fan kid. Sure, I have other friends here and there and relatives I mention it to, but not to where they understand. I mean really get it. This isn’t any particular fault of theirs, we just don’t have the time for me to demonstrate it in a way they would immediately see its power and beauty.
I hope by sharing this information with you, you will begin to understand and appreciate the writing process I am invested in to bring you this amazing series of stories. If you can actually envision it while these tracks play, you are a true Child of Whocate.
Link to Stellardrone, the premiere album in my Spotify playlist. This album is FREE to anyone who wants to download it. I donated $20.00 because the value it has in inspiring my work in the Dragonfly Temple Chronicles is so important. I hope you will also gift the artist a donation of whatever you can afford to also show your appreciation of their work. It is up to you.
