Thought it was time again for a little inspiration. This is also one of the songs from my playlist for Kevin and Walter.
An adorable Christian and Olli fan vid.
Here are a few of the songs I listened to while writing HOW TO SAVE A LIFE (which has an updated blurb). For each song, some of the lyrics and/or the tone really spoke to me when it came to Kevin and Walter. The blend of passion, emotion, and suspense with this story led to an interesting mix of songs for these guys.
- For You, The Calling
- Say When, The Fray
- We Belong Together, Gavin DeGraw
- Walter’s song (although a lot of it works for Kevin too):
Bring Me to Life, Evanescence
- Kevin’s song:
Naked, Avril Lavigne
- Hanging By a Moment, Lifehouse
- It’s So Easy, Sheryl Crow & Don Henley
- Superman (It’s Not Easy), Five For Fighting
- I hear Kevin saying this to Walter (as opposed to the more spiritual meaning the song may have for some):
Show Me What I’m Looking For, Carolina Liar
- Never fear, this book has a happy ending, but some of the lyrics for this song describe very well what Walter and Kevin are feeling:
Goodbye My Lover, James Blunt
All my blog posts with behind the story information are also available on my website.
One of my favorite Queer As Folk fan videos and one of the more emotional ones. Such a great James Blunt song too.
Found at MySpace.
Here’s a nice little vid I saw on YouTube (NSFW). It’s a montage of clips from Latter Days. If you’ve never seen the film, definitely check it out. A charming romance about a Mormon missionary and a party boy with a happy ending. And Aaron is just adorable.
Absolutely love this adorable video. Might just be my favorite marriage proposal video EVER. You can’t keep from smiling while watching it, no matter what mood you started out in.
The description from YouTube:
“On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent’s house for dinner. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones. He ‘wanted to play her a song’…
What she got instead was the world’s first Live Lip-Dub Proposal.”
Hello everyone! I only have time for a quick post today, but I definitely wanted to share a link to a guest blog I wrote about music and my current manuscript (Walter and Kevin’s story).
My friend and lovely critique partner, Constance Phillips, who has her first release coming out with Crescent Moon Press later this year (Congrats, Constance!! So proud of you!!), was kind enough to give me a spot on her Character Playlist feature.
Stop by my post, Music of a Manuscript, to get a mini preview of Walter and Kevin’s story via some of the songs on the book’s playlist.
Also, keep an eye on my website for more about this story. I’ll be adding these and other videos for the rest of the playlist to my Behind the Story page, as well as more news and other behind-the-scenes details.
Have a good one!
This proposal is adorable…
