On Writing: What I Listen to When Writing

I first heard Alabama Shakes on Austin City Limits–a music show on P.B.S. Their music is a mixture of blues and soul. Brittany Howard’s voice is simply amazing.

I hope that the music inspires you to write.

Cheers!

This is an acoustic version of Gin Wigmore’s “Man Like That.”  I hope that you all enjoy and that the music inspires you to write!

On Writing: More Fall Photo Inspirations

100_0907

 

I decided to have lunch outside today at my favorite nearby park.  I packed some chicken salad, grabbed my camera, and headed out.

I hope that you enjoy the photographs and that they inspire you to write!

The fall season is one of my favorites because of all the colorful trees and bushes.  The area where I live is nice because of all the parks and forest preserves.  I like to walk along this specific path near the park.  You may have noticed pictures of this fence previously on my blog!

There is a railroad track through this area.

This is one of my favorite pictures from today.

One last burst of fall colors.100_0953I also took some photos of what can only be categorized as “spooky trees.”  I will share them closer to Halloween.

On Writing: Photo Inspirations

IMG_20140814_115503

 

I spent the week working on the first round of copy editing for my novel, The Caelimane Operation.  It is now back in the hands of my editor, Damien, at Musa.  I cannot wait for January and publication!

I though I would share some more photographs with you.  We are experiencing unusually warm weather in the MidWestern United States for the Fall season.  I do want to spend extra time outside, but manage to curtail my forays so that I can keep writing!

I took these photographs a few weeks ago.  I hope that you all enjoy them and they inspire you to keep writing.

Chris
