This week I'm going musical on you. I'm going to highlight a song and the specific lyrics that make me think about writing. And then, you know, apply them to writing, since that's what I do with everything.
Today: We're Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister.
That's right. These guys. Or whatever they are. (I especially like that one on the far left who's holding his stomach. What is he doing??)
Specifically this line: "If that's your best, your best won't do."
This sounds negative, but it's so not. It's inspirational to me when I sit down to write. I might write something and think, "Twisted Sister. Do it better."
And then I do.
I always listen to this song before crit group. It helps put me in the right mindset to take the slashing. Because I know they're trying to help me reach my best.
So thanks, Twisted Sister!
What do you think of this line? What lyrics inspire you?
