E is for Evanescence
As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing.
I’m not sure how I first heard their music, but Evanescence has become a staple in my writing playlists. I do know that the first song that go stuck in my head was “My Immortal”. There’s something about their music that works well with writing about Faerie. (In that capacity, I could have talked about Enya, too, but I’ll leave that for another time.)
Favourite album: “Fallen”. Favourite song: “Bring Me to Life”
Word of the day: étude.
According to Collins English dictionary: étude [ay-tewd] n short musical composition for a solo instrument, esp. intended as a technical exercise
Do you like Evanescence? Do you have a favourite music group/artist that starts with an “E”?

***So the reason I’ve been offline for a few days is that I was trying to get Warrior to stay alive. Her mum, Nyssa, had decided to abandon her and her brother Skittish (who died on Tuesday). She probably decided that now that it is cold, they have to make it on their own. (Or her hormones changed because of the change in weather – she stopped clucking over them.) I moved little Warrior into my study in a box filled with saw dust, grit, her food, water and a heating lamp. But yesterday she died. Despite all my efforts, she didn’t make it. You can see photos of them on Instagram.
