Unlikely Inspiration

Currently I’m re-outlining my (very high-level, BTW) WIP to “El Tango de Roxanne” since I just realized that I’ve gotten the order of events wrong. Hero Material is horrified that I’ve been listening to the song for almost fifty minutes straight. ;)

Interestingly enough, Three 6 Mafia’s “It’s a Fight” did nothing to stimulate my Muse. Odd since the current project has the following:

  • freelance killers
  • government assassins
  • dirty bureaucrats
  • corrupt CEOs
  • a mafia boss

What it doesn’t have is a prostitute. Yet it is “El Tango de Roxanne” that gets my juices flowing again. Ah, my Muse is strange…! (No, I’m not adding a prostitute or two to the already insane mix.)

How about you? Ever got inspired by the most unlikely music?

    Hi :)
    Your WIP sounds intriguing.
    I am one of those few writers who tune out the world, so I don’t listen to music when I write.
    The Moulin Rouge soundtrack is great.
    All the best,
