Meet the Characters: Part 1

Are you ever searching for ways to procrastinate away your writing time? Well, I would recommend that you create mediocre character aesthetics and scour YouTube searching for your character’s perfect theme song. I can’t promise you’ll be too proud of the aesthetics, but, man will those songs be catchy!

OK, yeah, that’s what I’ve been doing – between furiously editing, and real life. I am pretty excited about the songs I’ve found for a few of my characters, so I’m going to start it off here with my two MCs! I apologize in advance for my aesthetics – who knew those things are so difficult to get right? But, this is more about the music anyway.

POV 1: Kura

You can meet Kura here in chapter one! She’s a twenty year old outcast living in dark forest where death and danger describes her every-day life. She’s not foolish enough to put any trust in her mother’s mystical religion, and she’s not afraid to barter with the rebellion in the hopes of making a better life for her family. I think this song fits her so perfectly, probably in ways you wouldn’t expect before reading the book – but, I won’t go into that any further for fear of spoiling the whole book. 😛


POV 2: Triston

You get to meet Triston in chapter two. He’s the twenty-one year old son of the king, a thoughtful young man with little certainty and little direction for his life. Things start to change, however, when he’s sent to arrest rebel informants in the Wynshire. It was a struggle to find a song that fit him right, and I finally decided on this one. The lyrics are OK, but the feel of this song is just right.


Anyway, those are the songs I’ve had playing on repeat for a while now, and I just had to share. Do you have any songs that match you characters or MCs? (Do you know how to make those really pretty character aesthetics?) Leave your comments below!

  1. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we are looking to swap techniques with others, be sure to shoot me an email if interested.


  2. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!


  3. The core of your writing while sounding agreeable initially, did not really sit very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will definitely be amazed.
