Black Maria Theme

Hi Everyone,

I've been working on my third novel, Black Maria, and at the moment I'm stuck. I'm past the half-way point in drafting, and I know everything between now and the end, but I can't get this scene to come out right.

So, I'm trying something that I've done in the past. I wrote theme music for the scene - and I'm hoping the act of thinking transcribing what I feel into sounds will help the picture come through clearer to my mind's eye.

I thought I'd share what I came up with. Here's to hoping it works! I included a few lyrics too below the video.



Your friends don't have to know.

You can shed your skin.

They don't have to see what changed

That night I prayed.

Two as one

And I stayed til three.

One word the next day.

I'm stuck in second place

A wreck at least

Until you sang to me

And we matched pace.
