I was going to post about block description or something today. Look at that: I can't even remember. Wow. Anyway, I had a post all planned out. That is, until something slightly weird happened.
I don't know. I was probably just too emotionally involved in my book that I wasn't quite processing the real world. But hey...you take awesome weirdness as it comes, right?*
You've probably experienced a weird moment where it feels like God is speaking to you. Through your iPod. You're just sitting there, and suddenly, a song plays that fits exactly with whatever you're going through, whatever mood you're in. Sure, shuffle is random, but the timing is just way too perfect to be coincidence.**
Well, yesterday I had a moment like that. It was like God was speaking through my characters through my iPod. I found the most amazing, perfect song, for my characters, and for just my writing in general. Yes, the song is about life, but it could also be about a writer's characters. I played the song twice.
And here you have it: Beautiful Words, by The Afters. From the album Never Going Back to OK.
Enjoy. The Afters are amazing, anyway.
Have you ever had any weird iPod-communication moments? Or just any awesome songs that played at the right time? Please share!
*Well, that's my life motto, at least. (Okay, not really.)
**This is not counting the time when I asked my iPod "How will I die?" and pressed shuffle. The first song to come up was "Dragon Battle" from the How to Train Your Dragon soundtrack. I felt amazingly epic.
