Songs that stir the creative muse! (Guest post by Mary Morgan)
Dragon Knight’s Ring PlaylistI’ve often said that music feeds my soul for creativity. It stirs the muse and my writing soars. Dragon Knight’s Ring was an emotional story for me. Since this was the last in the Order of the Dragon Knights series, I had to search for different types of music—ones that would be epic. Here is my playlist for Adam and Meggie’s story.
- “A Celtic Lore” by Adrian von Ziegler, from the album The Celtic Collection. I listened to this song during the beginning of Adam and Meggie’s courtship. It was soft, hesitant—like both of them.
- “Yearning Hearts” by David Arkenstone, from the album Celtic Book of Days. Adam is desperately trying to find out what is bothering Meggie. He’s hoping to spark some memory of their past together by skipping stones across the river.
- “King of the Woodlands” by Peter Gundry, from the album The Dream Weaver. A meeting between the evil druid, Lachlan and Meggie. Cannot say anything more. This song was perfect.
- “A Witch’s Tale” by Peter Gundry, from the album The Lost Book of Fantasy. The druid, Lachlan is preparing, plotting his one last battle against the Dragon Knights.
- “The White Witch” by Peter Gundry, from the album The Lost Book of Fantasy. Adam’s journey to visit his home, Castle Leomhann. He’s unprepared for what he will find.
- “Circle of Life” by Adrian von Ziegler, from the album The Celtic Collection. I listened to this many times while writing the scene where Meggie’s memories are restored and she greets Adam.
- “Stormcry” by David Arkenstone, from the album The Celtic Book of Days. Adam’s quest to reach Meggie in time, before the battle begins.
- “Morrigan—Goddess of War” by Peter Gundry, from the album The Dream Weaver. A fitting song for the pre-battle between the Dragon Knights, Lachlan, and the Dark One.
- “The Quest of Culhwch” by David Arkenstone, from the album The Celtic Book of Days. I used several songs for the final battle, but constantly played this one until I knew I had poured out every detail.
- “Ceridwen—The Potion of Knowledge” by Peter Gundry, from the album The Dream Weaver. My farewell song to the Dragon Knights. It starts slow and then builds to this powerful ending. Yes, I did cry.
