I finished Chapter 8 of The Fall of the Sun just barely. I realize it’s past 2am, but hey, when the inspiration for a better ending of the chapter emerges, you gotta write it down, right?
I knew I wanted the ending of this chapter to be somewhat grim and tragic with a loss for two characters. Due to my sleepiness, I plugged my headphones in and started writing and writing and writing until I was satisfied with how the chapter ended. I have the song “Promise” from the game Silent Hill 2 on repeat because it’s a grim yet absolutely beautiful piano piece that is super calming to me for some reason. I absolutely love it! Hence the pic included today is Silent Hill related. I had the song on repeat to focus like crazy in order to not get distracted.
I usually don’t mind listening to other types of music as I write, but since I need to get to bed asap, I dialed it down from my normal playlists to this piano instrumental. 7 pages later, the chapter finished and I’m off to bed for the second time haha. Will start chapter 9 tomorrow! Whoo! This one will be fun since it’ll be a perspective change to another character! I look forward to it!
Nighty night! Dream of happy things tonight!
