TGIF {26}

TGIF is a fun post created by Ginger at GReads.  It’s to recap what you’ve posted about through the week and Ginger asks a fun book related question.  

Friday, April 13th - Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?

When I first read this weeks topic I didn't think I would post. I love books and I love music, but I never really hear a song and think OMG I want to read a book about that. Don't get me wrong, I hear songs and get inspired for certain things, or can picture it for another book, never never really came up with an entire book from just one song. Until last week. Ever see the movie Garden State? (it's one of my all time favorite movies) Well there's this song from it, on the sound track, that is AH-MAZING. It's called Fair by Remy Zero. It's beautiful and broken and I just love it. I remember thinking "there should be a story that goes with this." And now I want to write it. While listening to it on repeat as I cleaned the house Friday, an idea for a story popped into my head. I sat down a few nights later and wrote the opening scene. It's not much, but it's a start. About 250 or so words. It's going to be a dark YA CONTEMPORARY! YES! I typed that right, contemporary. So far the working title is FAIR. I have a name for my female MC. I can picture the guys. Neither have a name.

What about you?

This week on the blog:

Also check out my review of Obsidian and Shadows over at Quest for Books (along with some other great posts)

Ooh yay!!! I didn't know it was based on a song! Can't wait till it's sitting on the shelves of bookstores and you can tell the world where the inspiration came from! :)
