Music, Television, Movies, and Writing Inspiration



Music has been a part of my life for years, and ever since I got my first Mp3 which was a red RCA device I was hooked. I did love CD’s at one point but after I got an Mp3 player I switched to portable systems instead I think I was in middle school when I got into it then I got a Creative Vision Zen, Ipod and finally comes the Ipad, and Samsung Galaxy S3. Music has been a big part of my life especially when it comes to listening to my favorite bands. I loved Good Charlotte, Evanescence, Blink 182, and many more. I went to my first concert Projekt Revolution which was a fun thing since I got rained on when I first got there, and I was pelted with hail which was not a fun experience since we were standing there letting it past.

Afterward we went in the place where the concert was being held, and it had food carts, and it was full of bands and people who loved music as much as I do. It was amazing seeing my favorite bands live: Armor for Sleep, The Bravey, Chris Cornell, Linkin Park, Hawthorne Heights, Ashes Divide, 10 years, Atreyu, Street Drum Corps, and it was amazing I even bought a Hawthorne Heights hoodie. I loved it, and seeing my bands live was one of the best days of my life.

I even have a playlist for The Second Killer novel:

Cry Little Sister,” by Aiden

Don’t speak.” By Eagles of Death Metal

“Breaking the Habit.” , Numb, New Divide by Linkin Park

“Fall for You.” by Secondhand Serenade

“Kiss From a Rose.” by Seal

Down.” by Blink-182

 Broken.” by Seether feat.Amy Lee

“Bring Me To Life.” by Evanescence


These are just some of the song on there, and there are many more like Imagine Dragons song “Demons.”, and mainly rock songs. I love rock music.

One of the things I also use for inspiration is watching movies and television that helps get my creative juices flowing. The movies I use for inspiration are: The Halloween Town series HalloweenTown 1 and 2, Halloween Town High, and Return to Halloween Town since I really love the way the world is set up. Dark Shadows since the whole love story is really sweet. As for television shows True Blood since I love all the story lines, and Sabrina the Teenage witch since I love the story world the writers created. I love watching them to inspire me to write my own story, and when I see something I don’t like when it comes to books I use that to inspire me not to do it.

What inspires you?

Until next time,






 I have been so busy between work and school that I have barely had any time to write at all. It shows at times when I don’t write since writing is something I have to do in order to stay sane. I was kept up late at night last night thinking about my characters Scarlet and Anubis. I thought about where they came from, and who their parents are realizing I need to do more research on ancient Egypt to understand where Anubis came from. I applied to Virginia Commonwealth University because I really want to go there to get a Bachelors in Mass Communications in Journalism. I plan on minoring in Creative Writing because I love to write. It is more of a have to versus write when I feel like it since if I don’t write I feel emotionally bad. It is a thing I have learned about myself since I use my writing as a way of therapy.
I also plan on using my Reviews for Writers blog to talk about a writing book I have been reading called Book in a Month by Victoria Schmidt. It is a good book, and I will be doing an experiment to see if I can write a book in a month. I also plan on reviewing The Writer magazine since I get it all the time. Of course I might just do it during the summer. I have been working more on the second killer novel, and at one point I was trying another way. It did not work out, and I kept the original version instead. I might be putting the first few chapters in the paperback, but I will have to see meanwhile I am waiting for the editor and working on editing the retail story to send it off to a proofreader before I send it to an editor. I am going to get another laptop when I start vcu as a way of making a fresh start.
I will be turning my blog Survey of Popular Culture into a blog for reviewing movies, television shows, and video games since I watch a ton of tv shows and movies in my spare time. I know I should use it to review books too since it falls in the realm of popular culture too. I will be free during the summer for the first time, so expect me to post way more than I do now since I will be free from school. That leaves me time to write more too, and play video games. I am thinking for my first review that I will review Bioshock Infinite, and I do have the Samsung Galaxy S3 review done so expect to see that when I find all the pieces to it since my room is so messy I only found a few pages. As always I will keep you guys up to date when I re-release the first killer short and the first retail ebook.
Until Next Time,
