Warm Fuzzies Week Two - Inspiration


This week, as part of the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest, we are to give a visual hint at our current WIP, so here's mine. 


Let me know what you think in the comments section. 

We are also supposed to write what gives us inspiration when we are writing.  I'm a huge music junky.  I LOVE it.  I can hear just the right song during the day and know just where I want to go.

However, I am very picky about what I can listen to when I'm writing.  Part of the problem is that if I'm listening to something with the words in English, I start typing the words, which does not work well at all.

So when I'm writing, I listen to classical music.  I even took the time, on my other blog, to write down all my favorite classical music pieces.  If you are interested, you can go here

In the meantime, go visit Juliana's blog, check out the others who are participating, and don't forget to write in the comments what you think my WIP is about.

Hmmm...this looks like the gates of heaven, with it's golden city stretching out beyond. Interesting!

I love listening to music, too. When I first began writing I couldn't focus if there was noise of any kind, let alone music. Eventually, in an attempt to drown out Dora and Adventure Time, I trained myself to work better with songs blasting through my headset--the words don't even compute in my mind anymore. Guess I've become desensitized.

It has to be fantasy right? I would say this is a realm in the clouds...or better yet its like the Thor realm where you have to travel through water to the other side and its upsidedown but the most beautiful place you could imagine. Yep, I nailed it right:)

An apocalyptic fantasy? Involving the king and his armies battling forces of evil who clamor to takeover his kingdom?

Emma said...

I kinda get the sense of perfect beauty assailed and menaced by chaos. The city shines out a beam of hope but you feel many troubles lie ahead. I began to think of Valhalla and the twilight of the gods from Wagner's opera. I think a hero is somehow separated from his rightful place and fights to return to save his homeland. Just possibly I am wrong. It could be about a dis-advantaged kid trying to get into a top university as in Hardy's "Jude".

I would sure read it whatever it is.

I think I'll take a stab at it...

A frog named Lily suddenly dies in a freak accident with a water snake. But when she arrives in the clouds, she discovers she wasn't ever a frog, but an enchanted maiden with the power to possess the bodies of animals. Because she had never known her true identity, the angels take pity on her and send her back to Earth to fulfill her destiny. But a handsome and debonair angel becomes drawn to her, and follows her, hoping that she will die again so they can be together.

Or something like that. ;)

Music works for me too--usually a playlist that repeats until it all fades into the backgroud!
Your photo immediately makes me think fantasy, something with a kingdom.
This is a fun blogfest!

Melissa Kline said...

Oooh, your photo reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time - The Neverending Story. I'm going to guess a high fantasy novel? Maybe there is a princess locked away in a tower somewhere? Great photo!

A city in the sky, where everything floats due to a magic crystal. The main character was born with a crystal for a heart. Whee.

I actually can't listen to music when I'm writing because it's so distracting, even if it's a classical piece. I'm too busy following the melody to get more than five wpm.

Cortney said...

I'm guessing it's a miniature city hidden within a rock that someone has to smash open without damaging the city because they then have to drink some Alice in Wonderland shrinking potion in order to be small enough to enter the city and save the damsel in distress!

Juliana L. Brandt said...

Great picture!

I'm going with something to do with Greek mythology. It looks like Olympus to me!

I'm guessing it's set during antiquity and in an opulent city full of royalty and nobles, with lots of romance, beauty, and mystery.

Jess said...

It's too bad I'm in the library right now because I'm finding it difficult to not laugh out loud at Cassie Mae's creative guesses. I think a snort or two has escaped, and the people around me are glaring at me....

So, I'll guess that it's about a magical library where people can laugh all they want and nobody ever kicks them out. There are also no late fees, free massages, and an abundance of hot men with sexy voices who will read novels to you while feeding you chocolate-covered strawberries next to a crackling fire.

That's a wonderful picture. Looks like Wizard of Oz meets The Lord of the Rings.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

Ooh! For some reason this makes me think of something like Rebel Angels... A mystical golden city, perhaps in the distant past or the distant future, but certainly not contemporary... There's a tunnel beneath the city, and it's branches off like catacombs, but in water... There's a revolution, or an attack from a neighboring country and the tunnels become a place to hide, to smuggle people out... I don't know, but something exciting and good!

A.E. Martin said...

Hmm, the picture makes me think of a fantasy world where there is a rich, powerful upper class and a poor, lower class that is subjected to abusive rule by the elite and there will be a band of young people who are one a journey of some sorts that takes them from the slums upwards.

Chemist Ken said...

I prefer to use soft ambient music when I write. Any music that is too catchy or with too a strong beat diverts me from my writing.

Kristy Shen said...

Is your WIP about Heaven? If it is, then we have something in common :)

I've added myself as a follower. Hope you can drop by my blog :)
