The World of Lilith T. Bell

Romance and adventure await…

Inspiration

I’m still busily getting Fighting Like Cats and Dogs all polished and ready and trying to figure out what will come next. There are about a million different ideas roaring through my head right now, making it difficult to decide. And finding a new album to use for inspiration has probably made things worse:

I never got that into the All-American Rejects before, but their newest album is really working wonderfully for a soundtrack to my writing. It’s all about passion and heartbreak and nostalgia, which are all exactly what a romance novel should be. This song in particular has one of the most poignant choruses I’ve ever heard in a pop song. A single line encompasses so much:

My someday’s gone now

Doesn’t that just perfectly match that sense of loss from a broken heart? Not just that you’ve lost the present with that person, but all of those possible “somedays” you might have spent together.

And while we all want that happily-ever-after in the end, it’s the fear of losing that someday that keeps us absolutely glued to a book. Without battling through the heartbreak first, the victory just isn’t quite as sweet.
