Writing On A Train

There’s something unique about writing on a train. While the world is literally passing you by, you sit and watch or in my case, sit and write. I’ve written a great deal while riding on the train to and from work. It has produced some of my most creative conversations between characters.

Lately I’ve been having some writing hesitation, trying to get the right descriptions out, trying to get the right words to express myself…trying to be perfect on the first shot. I always seem to forget that it’s alright not to be perfect right away. I forget that editing, editing and more editing can shed the drab writing leaving exquisiteness in it’s wake.

It was today writing on a train that I wrote something of pride. It was nothing more than four sentences but it was the best four sentences. That feeling is still lingering in my veins and has pushed me to finish the chapter and start on the next.

There may be inconveniences like limited seating, gross smells, loud noises, etc while taking the commuter rail. If it means that I can produce works of literary art that can astound readers, I’ll find a wall to lean against with my iPod in my ears, typing away mindless until the doors open at my destination.

New Story & Beta Reader Feedback

I’ve had a few beta readers look over one of the newer stories that I’ve been working on and received fantastic feedback. I was actually surprised by how quickly they were taken with the story, which was followed by immediate orders to continue writing.

While working on the next chapter of this story, a song by Kacey Musgraves came on and it was perfect timing indeed. The tone of the song only seemed to assist in pushing me further even if the meaning isn’t exactly the same within the story. Her voice is absolutely beautiful and soothes the soul. And I wanted to share it with all of you.

Keep It To Yourself By Kacey Musgraves

Winds of Change -A Musical Taste

Writing the last chapter in Winds of Change and the intensity has risen to monstrous levels. Breath by Breaking Benjamin is a minor taste of what’s coming…

Breath Lyrics
I see nothing in your eyes, and the more I see the less I like.

Is it over yet, in my head?

I know nothing of your kind, and I won’t reveal your evil mind.

Is it over yet? I can’t win.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I’m going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.

This will be all over soon.
Pour salt into the open wound.

Is it over yet? Let me in.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I’m going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.

I’m waiting, I’m praying, realize, start hating.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
’cause I will be the death of you.
