What is it about "Snuff" by Slipknot?

So, like my wonderful cousin and writing counterpart, I realized that if I gave myself things to talk about each day on the blog, I will be more "bound" to visit and write on my blog- hopefully you guys will start coming as well :)

Anyway, I thought I would like to start off each week by talking about one of my other loves- and I think most writers agree that this goes hand and hand with writing- music. I would love to spend each Monday discussing the music that inspires me to write, or that makes me think about new material.

This week I will highlight one of my all-time favorite songs- Snuff by Slipknot. I can't really figure out why I love this song, but it just does something to me- lyrics like "break yourself against my stones...and spit your pity in my soul." These are the kind of words that I wish I had written! The kind of lyrics that inspire a writer to pick up a pen (or open up that laptop) and just flow... Can you think of a song that you like right now that evokes this same response???


  1. Great song choice! It took me a minute to catch on to the song, but now it's one of my faves, too. I also say that you can't go wrong with Muse--they're music is hella inspiring, not matter what the mood. :)

  2. Yes, music does the same for me. I have a friend who is kind of a writing buddy, and she says that music always helps her. Whenever I tell her I have writer's block, she tells me to turn my radio up. That Natasha Beddingfield song comes to mind. It's called "Unwritten" I think. I like the lyrics: "Today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten." I too wish that I had thought of these lyrics. It also kind of makes me think of writing. It's like, your book is still not written Racquel. So you better get started LOL :)
