Musical Inspiration: I Remain by Alanis Morissette

Though I haven’t seen the Prince of Persia yet(though it’s on my Netflix list!), I absolutely LOVE  this song!  For one, I’m a huge Alanis Morissette fan and to hear her again after all this time is awesome!  Her voice is so melodic and realistically heartfelt that they couldn’t have picked anyone else for this song.  Second, the music gives that Middle Eastern feel that I love to listen to when I’m writing ( I don’t know why but it does!).  When I listen to this song, I envision the romantic storyline that my novel has.  Though I’m not a hopeless romantic or into all that mushy stuff, I do believe in the theory of soul mates and a connection that goes beyond the “I love you’s” and all the other flowery words and gestures.

Here’s an excerpt from the romantic plot and enjoy the video!

She couldn’t explain it and neither could Fael, whose years of loneliness were instantly erased, feeling complete just by knowing her.  Words weren’t necessary that evening for their silence said all that they were afraid to say as they watched the night roll in.  They both knew it would be their last night together, though Damaris didn’t know that it would be the last time in her young adult life that her heart would have its say.
