A few days ago fellow blogger, Kitty, tagged me with an assignment of sorts. I’m not prone to taking on blog assignments, but this seemed like a good way to express how various individuals place themselves in a creative mind set to write. So I’m tagging wordsmith extraordinaire, communicatrix, dame wiggy, Fat Cyclist, and misty mockingbird to get their inputs as well.
The assignment: Think of THE song that most inspires you to write, whether it gives you an idea for a story, script or just puts you into a better frame of mind AND/OR peek into the lyrics and find a verse that sums up the theme of whatever project it is you’re working on. If possible, post a video of the song to convey to readers the full context of the song and the mood it puts you into. Finally, send the assignment to five other writers to do as well.
Sheryl Crow, “The Difficult Kind”
Tell it to me slow, tell me with your eyes
If anyone should know, how to let it slide
I swear I can see you, comin up the drive
There ain’t nothing like regret to remind you you’re alive
If you could only see, what love has made of me
Then I’d no longer be, in your mind, the difficult kind
Cause ‘babe, I’ve changed
