For this week's selection process I decided to go a different route. Like always it is always based on looks, but this time I attached all of the likely candidates' profile pictures to bowling pins. The best looking people got their bowling pins closest to the corners by the bumpers (since those are pretty much all I hit ever.) After about 8 tries Lydia is our lucky participant. Here are her picks:
1) Waiting for the End, Linkin Park
I'm really, REALLY late to the Linkin Park thing. This song is heavily played at my house right now. I often touch on mortality in my writing (who doesn't, right?) and this recurrent theme in LP lyrics appeals to me. There is one line in this song that kills me, when Chester says, "I know what it feels to lie." My MC tackles this exact sentiment in my current WIP. Also, the video is so mesmerizing. They look like constellations gone wrong. Mr Hahn makes cool vids.
2) Never say Never, the Fray
A great song about the challenges of a relationship. It's perfect for my MC and her love interest. I love Isaac Slade's falsetto and the apocalyptic video.
3) I'm Yours, Jason Mraz.
This one has nothing to do with characters in my writing, per se, but I first listened to this song the same time I started my very first (and very shelved) novel. Every time I hear it, I'm transported back to the magic of creating my first world. And the video makes me want to go to Hawaii. Like, now.
It was so hard to pick just three! Thanks Chris for letting me spill out a bit of my musical writing mojo for all to see. Nebraskans rock.
