Recently, I decided I was going to replay Kingdom Hearts. For those who don’t know, Kingdom Hearts is the Disney rpg PS2 game that came out back in 2002. It centers around Sora, whose tropical island home world is destroyed. With the help of Donald Duck and Goofy, he must use the Keyblade to save the worlds and his friends.
What does this have to do with writing? Aside from being an exemplary sample of combining plots, many writers I know use music as inspiration while writing. Kingdom Hearts offers an amazing soundtrack for just such inspiration. I have the entire soundtrack and love it. Below are my top recommendations for Kingdom Hearts music.
Any of the battle music is good for writing, well, battle scenes. There’s some gentler music for romantic moments as well.
P.S. Five bonus points to anyone who knows Donald Duck’s middle name. I’ll answer the question next Monday.
