Saturday Songs – November 10, 2012
Continuing with NaNoWriMo themes songs, this next selection is one that I actually discovered well after the NaNoWriMo project that I found it appropriate for.
Back when I was writing my fourth NaNoWriMo, I found I was having difficulties keeping the momentum. At least until I stumbled across the song Hero by the band Skillet. The theme of the song seemed most appropriate for the story I was writing (a superhero adventure) that I even started to notice a shift in how characters acted within. Hero was featured in Saturday Songs a couple of months ago.
As is often the case with me, I start to search out other songs by the band once I heard one that I liked. During this search, I stumbled across another song that would have been perfect for the NaNoWriMo I had written two years before. Within this supernatural urban fantasy horror adventure, there was one character who was a werewolf. As is often the case, I tweaked what it was like being a werewolf, working in changes to personality, and the sufferer trying desperately to control the inner beast.
And in the lyrics for Monster by Skillet I found some of those same themes.
