As many know, I am currently working on a comic book called Pieces for Shot in the Dark Comics. Pieces is a steampunk comic that is a blast to write and – I believe – is going to be something that people who love horror, fantasy, and steampunk are going to enjoy. I can’t say too much right now, but I’ll be adding a special section to my site just for the comic soon.
I’ve finished the first three issues, and am working on writing the next three for this arc of the steampunk comic right now, and I thought I might share a bit of inspiration I use.
Whenever I write anything, I like to have music on in the background – or sometimes blasting through the headphones. I tend to make playlists of songs that become soundtracks to whatever I might be working on at the time. I use these as inspiration whenever I need a boost during my writing. These aren’t all the songs on my list, but they should give you a good idea of the tone I’m going for with the story.
You’ll notice that I have quite a few from a band called Abney Park. I love this group, and the music is a perfect fit. However, I’ve got a few other bands in there as well, and if you have any suggestions for groups that could fit in this playlist let me know. I’m always looking for new music for my Pieces comic playlist!
Also, if you like these songs as much as I do, support the artists and buy them from Amazon, iTunes, or wherever you prefer to buy your music.
COPPER GIRL – from 3 Colours Red
HERR DROSSELMYERS DOLL – Abney Park
VICTORIAN VIGILANTE – Abney Park
ALL THE MYTHS ARE TRUE – Abney Park
AUTOMATON – Abney Park
DOCTOR SAWBONES – Creature Feature
EVIL NIGHT TOGETHER – Jill Tracy
WORLDS IN BETWEEN – Rufus Rex
There we go, that’s a decent sampling of my current playlist. Now, I know that folks out there will have their own steampunk music and other music that they love. Let me know what else might fit along with this list so I can have some more ear candy while I’m writing.
