Day 10: Today’s Writing Song

Normally, I’m a “music first” person, but the lyrics of New Divide by Linkin Park are equally compelling. (Plus I’m a weather geek and I like geology, so that helps.) There’s a great deal of inspiration for writing in this song. It never seems to grow old, either.

The song was released in 2009. By that time, I was already a Linkin Park fan. In fact, my sensei in karate listened to Linkin Park when he practised sparring at home.

I listened to this song a lot during the last couple of years of writing Beyond the Precipice. In my playlist, it’s linked (no pun intended) to the chapter called “Aftermath.” (I can’t say more or it would be a spoiler.)

Today’s writing song is the last of the initial set of ten. Tomorrow I will post a survey, so please check in.
