Character Theme Songs: Beka

One of the questions you are asked when you sign up for NaNoWriMo is what type of music do you listen to when writing. That is a hard question for me to answer because it depends on the story and what is going on in the story.

One of the things I notice that comes up with my listening is that certain songs begin to become the theme songs of characters. I find I am listening to one song constantly when writing about a certain character.

Over the next few posts I am going to share the songs I listen to and explain why they became the theme songs.

Here is the song for Beka:

The Chair by The 69 Eyes

Poor, poor, poor Beka.

What a messed up woman she was. She wanted to be miserable, she wanted to be hurt, and she wanted the attention.

You could say this was the theme song to her human life. She still carried on through all the emotional baggage she had built up around her. Part of her wanted someone to "kick the chair", but there was part of her that stopped her each time.
