Earworm: Shatter Me

When I discovered this video I didn’t realise it was the same girl as who does all the fandom violin music videos (see this Skyrim one), or that the vocalist was the woman from Halestorm (who I barely knew of anyway). I just saw the cover of the album and loved the imagery and so I checked it out.

Luckily the visual imagery that I loved (dancing girl with violin in a snow-globe) on the cover was also in the music video, with a whole lot more besides.

Anyway, this is Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling and featuring Lzzy Hale on vocals.

I Didn’t Expect That To Happen

So back a good while ago, when I was just coming up with the concept and characters for The Necromancer’s Daughter I realised that my protagonist shared some features with a local singer. Mainly the hair and eyes.

And I thought “Great, now I have a visual shorthand to use when telling writing friends about the story and character” – if, of course, I could find a) people who knew her b) decent pictures to show people who didn’t.

I ended up not having that problem, as that singer was Lorde and… I’m sure you know what happened with her.

Ha ha ha oops.
