Here’s what my Muse has found pleasing…
I made this little graphic so I could print out and tape into my journal – but quickly discovered that my printer is out of ink. Grrr, I purchased those before I left Miami, but I guess not using them for nearly six months can make them feel all ignored and decide their not in a printerly mood.
I so do love Shakespeare’s Sonnet 43… The way it speaks of yearning is so poignant. I’m totally channeling this feeling for one of my characters.
The photo I used I found via Tumblr. Apparently it’s a statue located in Rome. So it’s on my list of things to see when we visit. I just have to figure out where.
Music definitely helps rev up my creativity. I recently discovered The National, I’ve had their album High Violet on near constant replay. They’re heading straight toward being one of my favorite bands.
Florence + the Machine… Two songs specifically I’ve found to be quite thematic, for my writing these days, Cosmic Love and Blinding off of the Lungs album.
Le Sigh. Love those.
Here are a few links to the two albums I referenced. These links are affiliate codes…
Nicole Olea’s love language is communication. She does this best using her keyboard as a freelance copywriter and editor. Before her current gig working in social media management and eCommerce marketing, Nicole Olea was a professional volunteer, sharing her skills with various non-profit organizations who paid her in hugs. For the last 20 years, she’s lived a quasi-nomadic life, moving across the country and the Atlantic with her active-duty husband and their three kids. She’s awkwardly stumbling toward her goal of becoming a saint. She’s got God-sized dreams and wants you to have them too!
