The Character Karaoke Tag!


Hey, young bloods! I was tagged by the most wonderful Sunset for this music-meets-NaNo tag, and so what better WIP to post about than my steampunk vs. fairyland novella, (working title) Song of Magic and Machines?

What Song Best Describes the Mood of Your Novel?


This song.

Is literally about.

Steampunk.

Pirates.

And guess who half my main characters are?

Steampunk.

Pirates.

This is literally the most perfect song for SoMaM, and it's usually what I listen to first thing when I sit down to write.

Pick a Character and a Song to Describe Them.


Make no apology
It's death or victory
On my authority
Crash and burn, young and loaded

THIS IS SO KARISSA I CAN'T.

Karissa Valindra Kella Serpent Goldlock (what? Gnomes like long names) is my fae thief who falls in with the pirates of the previous song.

And anger built in the gnome, up and up and up, until it lifted her head and stilled her soul, wrapped it in those thorns which had always been a danger to others but a comfort to her. Yes, she was in Zilmaris, in prison, in chains. But by God, she would change nothing she’d done. She was one of the foremost thieves in Faelind. She had stolen the King’s Gems. She had lived a life worth living. And the forests of her home were beautiful, and the streams by her house were lovely, and the dill soup and spiced bread her mother made were nice, too - but so was freedom, and swinging from spire to spire with the wind in your hair, and laughing as gold ran through your fingers and were on top of the world. She was Karissa Valindra Kella Serpent Goldlock - and her soul would go on living long after her body was dead.

One of your characters is at a karaoke night when - gasp! They've been asked to get up and sing! What song do they choose and how do they perform it?


We gotta rise up
It's time to take a shot
And I am not throwing away my shot!

Let's be real, Karissa would totally be the one to hog the mic at karaoke night. I can definitely see her performing this one - getting really into the characters and totally pulling it off.
