Flame of Justice, The Ferryman and The Flame Soundtrack

118,000 words, 412 pages and 22 Chapters later and the first draft of Flame of Justice is officially complete!

Before I go turn on my inner critic and realize how NOT finished this book is, I want to revel in the fact that I now have something to work with, and I am that much closer to being able to work on Flame of the Apocalypse, the third installment of the series.

With that I think that all writers out there are inspired by music and I am no exception. Music has always been a huge part of my life, from my days as a member of vocal jazz troupe Maple Sugar, to the brand new karaoke machine my husband bought me for Solstice.

And without further adieu, here is the list of songs.

The Most Influential Songs for Warrior:

Breathing by Wires – The Juliana Theory
Thick Skin – Hannah Georgas
Sundrenched World – Joshua Radin
Holy Toledo – Cyrstal Bowersox
Stereo Love – Edward Maya
When Doves Cry – Quindon Tarver
Talk Show Host – Radiohead
Dancing – Elisa
Closer – Kings of Leon
Ramalama (bang bang) – Roisin Murphy
The Rat – Dead Confederates
Nineteen – Tegan and Sara
Kissing You – Des’Ree
I Caught Myself – Paramore
Heavy in your Arms – Florence and the Machine
Satellite Heart – Anya Marina
My Love – Sia
Cradle and All – Ani DiFranco
Eyes on Fire – Blue Foundation
Glycerine – Bush
Close Your Eys – Christopher Beck
Meet me on the Equinox – Death Cab for Cutie
Junesong Provision – Coheed and Cambria
It Doesn’t Hurt – Katie Thompson
Setting Sun – Eskimo Joe
I don’t wanna be – Gavin DeGraw
Gamen – Garmarna
Need You Now – Lady Antebellum
Automatic Flowers – Our Lady Peace
Triumphant – Royksopp
Your Ex Lover is Dead – Stars
Breakeven – The Script

The top of the list are songs I listed to on repeat for way too long, especially Thick Skin by Hannah Georgas and Breathing by Wires by Juliana Theory.

The Juliana Theory song has some lyrics that really hit hard for this book, and they are:

“This is your world, and you barely made it,
Did you think that it would cradle you until you were asleep forever?
Did you, did you, did you, did you?
Did you, did you, did you, did you?”
Breathing by Wires – The Juliana Theory

I recommend these songs for anyone looking to get in the mood to do some seriously strong writing.

And *raises a toast* I am officially finished!

    Found you on book blogs and I&#39;m now your newest follower. Congratulations on finishing your first draft! :)<br /><br />Personally I don&#39;t really connect with music. I want to, and I know that it means a lot to other people but I just never think &quot;I feel like listening to some music&quot;. I guess my brain just doesn&#39;t work that way.
