Music Monday – I Wanna Rock – Twisted Sister

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.

writing-to-musicSince I spent last week working on random writing projects, I decided to once again keep things general today by spotlighting one of my “go-to” inspirational songs:

“I Wanna Rock” by Twisted Sister.

maxresdefaultI love listening to “I Wanna Rock” when I’m looking to infuse attitude in my writing. If I have a character who needs to act out, or stand up for themselves, or go against the grain, then I turn to this rock n’ roll song for inspiration.

“I Wanna Rock” also helps me develop conflicts in my stories.

I might not be a pushover in life, but I’m also not a conflict seeker: Soap opera drama. Fights. Backstabbing. Gossip. I avoid all of those things like the plague. Simply put, I don’t have patience for them.

Unfortunately, they make for great story fodder. So, in order for me to create and develop them, I need to listen to music that puts me in the Conflict Zone, like “I Wanna Rock” (or “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, another one of my Twisted Sister favorites).

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.

  1. Ariana Grande is a great vocalist but there are times that she just needs to learn to take it down a notch. One of those times is with Problem. Fortunately there is Hozier with a cover of the song. This is a seriously amazing version that surpasses the original.
