I knew it, let's go!
A song that I heard over the weekend and got me thinking quite a bit was Everyday by ASAP Rocky feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson. How much do I enjoy and think about this song? I got to memorizing all these names by the second viewing (of the credits) on televsion. Yes I am still one of those strange people who keep forgetting to just go on Youtube. I did look online later but that was to check out what the song was about. Yes, still have not looked it up on Youtube but you can now with the video below.
I thought it was really brave of ASAP to use his own life as an example of how the rap game can go terribly wrong. I know others have done this but there is just something very genuine and personal about the video and it's lyrics. Drugs, alcohol and hard partying are not all fun and games and exposing this while being a rapper who does it can be both jarring and telling of the kind of person you truly are. This is a song that should go down as one of the greats. I have so many thoughts and feelings still swimming around inside me even now.
Oh and now Benedict Cumberbatch has truly been in everything including on my blog. Yay.
Thanks to a lovely invite from Jennie Bennett to anyone wanting to join a September Nano I have two spanking new projects. Will not go into deep detail but I do need a little help. I have been jumping between titles on one.
The quick tagline right now is: For everyone who hated Twilight or even liked it a little bit.
By the way I love Twilight but get the reason why some people don't. My novel idea was not inspired by that book but something in me told me that it could satisfy those who felt Twilight romanticized vampires too much or that Bella was...wooden.
Right now I am stuck between three titles (A-C).
(A) My Vampire Ex-Boyfriend is Trying to Kill Me
The original title at the start but i started to feel that it was too one dimensional. Yes it is also long but so was the full titles of the Harry Potter books. When the book is awesome, readers don't care.
(B) A Bloody Gamble
Because it was a gamble if my protagonist would survive the change. Also I kind of wanted a title that left some mystery.
(C) Bloody Gamble
Same as B but without the 'A' since the book has the protagonist gambling on more than one thing.
(D) Broken Promises
Sounds more like a Lifetime movie so I am thinking no. Thought it was good for a second because of well..broken promises in the novel.
So what do you guys think? I know that I am being kind of vague but it is a paranormal YA novel and I plan to make it a stand alone. Also my protagonist is not going to be some kick ass one 'girl' army. She will need help and advice. Sorry but even Katniss had a mass of people behind her from start to finish. We can't all be Black Widow who can team up or go solo whenever.
Whoever made this poster, more power to you. You are awesome.
Thanks for popping by and this image below has nothing to do with this post. I just love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and if this is true I love Mikey aheam, Michelangelo even more. Have a wonderful day my lovelies!
