Writing Playlist for the Day

Music has inspired many great things, especially writing.  It can provide the perfect background to just about any scene.  So I thought I'd share my favorite writing songs for today:

Wrapped in Your Arms by Fireflight

Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift

All I Wanted by Paramore

I Almost Do by Taylor Swift

Stop the World by Demi Lovato

Nobody's Home by Avril Lavigne

And lastly, here's a snippet of my writing for the day.

The funeral is short but sweet, and although I don’t cry, pain does tug at my heart.  I've never felt so alone.  I have no one older than myself to ask advice.  No one to take comfort in.  I can't talk about my problems with Honey.  Even though she’s mature for thirteen, she’s still only a child.

She stands sobbing by my mother’s grave for minutes, and I know that I can't help her.  I'm never one to sympathize with others and I've often been called insensitive because of it.  I have feelings.  I just know how to hide them when I need to.

But now, I need someone.  And I wish Damon was here.

Just a minute later, I turn my head and notice that he’s standing just a few feet to my left.  He doesn’t move or even yell at me like I figured he would.  Instead, he says, his words soft, “I came as soon as I heard.  Are you okay?”

I don’t reply.  If I would of, it would have been a lie and he would have seen right through it.  Instead, I run to him and find myself tight in his arms. “I’m so sorry,” I whisper, but I know that he has already forgiven me.

Damon gently brushes the loose strands of hair on my back as he holds me close.  He doesn’t say anything, but he doesn’t need to.  I know he’s glad that I'm not mad at him and I’m thankful that he’s kind enough to forgive me for the terrible things I said.

Got to get back to writing, but enjoy :)



  1. Wow! I love it! I also really like your little playlist. :D
