Music Monday – Royals – Lorde

Welcome to Music Monday! As many of you know, music contributes a great deal to my writing process. Whether it’s a song’s lyrics, beat, rhythm, or tone, I find myself constantly inspired by it.

To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with a few songs this week. So, I tossed a coin on which one to choose, and the winner was Lorde’s “Royals”.

I find inspiration in this song for one simple reason: I LOVE Lorde’s voice. It has a husky, resonating quality to it with just a hint of edge. And that’s how I’ve always imagined my protagonist’s voice to sound like. Sharp yet soft, dark yet light. It’s kinda freaky, but also completley motivating. Every time I listen to “Royals”, my MC springs to life. I can actually “hear” her, which leads me to writing her in a sharper, realer, more genuine way.
So, if you’d like to listen to “Royals”, here you go! Maybe you’ll find inspiration in it as well?

What song(s) are you in love with right now? Which one(s) offer you inspiration? Let me know! I’m always searching for songs that motivate my writing.
