Music Monday - Science Fiction

Got very busy day today, so I'm sharing a playlist of Cyberpunk music I just found. I apologize in advance if there's anything offensive in this music. I didn't get a chance to review it ahead of time. What littel I did get a chance to listen to as I wrote this sounded pretty good, so I hope the rest proves to be enjoyable as well.

Cyber Punk music compilation - 1 hour of awesome sci-fi

Have a Cyber Punked out evening.

Music Monday - Fantasy

I love fantasy novels and movies and the music that goes with them. So this week's Music Monday I'm going to take you down a dreamy, slightly haunting path deep into an enchanted wood of giggling fairies, watchful elves, and a whole slew of witches, wizards, goblins.

Do you have your armor on? Good! You never know what we might encounter along the way. I'll bring my favorite fiery hands spell and we'll be on our way.

I would like to share this article by Jill Domschot for the edification of my fellow poets and fiction writers.

It is interesting to me that my brother, also a poet and writer, died from complications of his alcoholism. Sadly, one of his exes destroyed all of his work. Glad I gave up the sauce at an early age.

It may be true that a lot of poets and writers of fiction hole themselves up with their worries and their work, but a lot of us, myself included, enjoy nature and find a lot of inspiration in the world that surrounds us all. In fact, I really enjoy it when I hear a little catch of a conversation whilst dining out or taking a walk and that triggers the idea for a whole new story, scene for a story, or an entire poem.

However it is through introspection that the worlds that writers and poets build are born. Life is, after all, a series of emotional ups and downs. I think it's who you take along with you on this roller coaster ride called Life that matters. For me and the house (or world) my stories have built, I think I'll continue to invite the Lord to sit alongside me. At least if the darn thing goes flying off the rails I'll already be with my Maker.
