Why: Last weekend I hit a bit of a writer’s block while writing on Expendable Souls (the Forsaken rewrite; you know, the Nanowrimo-I-did-in-five days?). As I’m overhauling the story, I’m changing a lot of stuff around and it’s hard, this time around. A lot harder, because things have changed and it all needs to fit logistically and for some reason, it’s freezing me up like nobody’s business. Especially the action scenes. It’s always the action scenes with me. One of the reason why I started writing League stuff is because I fucking SUCK at writing action scenes; I hoped this would help me. I’m not sure if it has helped (I sure fucking hope so), but anyway, it’ll always be hard for me, I think.
And I was hitting the HUGE BATTLE, and I just couldn’t. So this weekend I hit myself up with an epic playlist on Youtube. One hour of epic trailer music, that should do the trick, I thought. Funnily enough, it did. I wrote about 2K of pure intense action and it didn’t even suck that hard.
In that playlist, I was crushing on one particular song – this one! It was a remix, apparently.
And then Olli showed me the new trailer for Pacific Rim (the Guillermo del Toro movie coming out this summer – huge mecha robots fighting huge monsters and all of the shiney, I’m down with it) and I crushed on the song once again. Now in a different version. It’s still all kinds of awesome and I love it and it’s brilliant. It’s also very inspiring to write with.
So I wanted to share, because this is awesome and it needs to be shared. You’re welcome.
