TUUUNES - an endless source of inspiration - Glasvegas - A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like A Kiss)

A Snowflake Fell (and it Felt Like a Kiss) Lyrics:
By Glasvegas 
The breeze, from the graveyard keeps murmuring death 
Too much time harbours thoughts in heads
Now I´m compelled to care 
About my future going nowhere 

As I stand here all alone in the cold 
wondering where I´m going to-day 
Then a snowflake fell 
and it felt like a kiss now I´m O-K. 

The ringing from the bells keeps screaming out love 
As snow fell from heavens above 
Direction-less no more 
Emptiness no more 

Now I don´t feel so all alone in the cold 
wondering where I´m going to-day 
For a snowflake fell 

and it felt like a kiss now I´m O-K

Some days - snow days - only the right kind of music will do.
Thinking about fog and ceremonies, I'm watching the flakes falling like they can't be bothered to land. It's all about the ride but these small things amass. They provide the greatest distraction.
I'm meant to be going out for a walk. Theoretical snow is so much more fun.

I am planning - STARRING.
I knew who, where and when - I just had to work out what, why and how.
I'm plotting the arc into the chapters and tightening the motivations and raising the stakes.
(The social structures in the back-story turned out to be fascinating - species, clans and tribes - very little of it will make it into this MG novel.)

It is NaNoWriMo Countdown-to-closure - hope you are finding the last day in November fruitful.


  1. Oh Dear, it's the time of year when everyone thinks of snow. Sitting by the fire, reading a book. I really love your header picture of the bookshelves. Have a great week. XO

  2. Come on intermittent flakes keep passing the window, it is almost time to post the public warning ;)
    I'm glad you like the header, it wasn't the first time I had tried to size the picture for the top. Last time I gave up, this time I persevered. Thanks for your kind wishes Manzanita :)

  3. I love planning a new novel and working out all the motivations and relationships and plot twists. Have fun!

  4. Thanks Susan. I do love the planning stage, my finger tingle in anticipation ;)
