Look at me, look at me! Two posts already this week...wow...I'm on a roll. Hopefully this rebound doesn't mean my writing is suffering...not that I'm superstitious or anything...LOL.
Before I forget - just found a contest and wanted to give a shout out. Check it out here...you could win a 20 page critique...which I am in desperate need of and drooling over....
Editorial Ass - Half a Million and Counting
And, yes, in a way, this post is a bit of a cop-out. There. I said it. You were thinking it, right? You would think with all the writing I've been claiming to be doing lately that I would have shared something on Teaser Tuesday, yes? Well, I have indeed been doing a lot of writing lately and even more re-writing and obsessing as I often do and I do actually plan on posting something next week! It's called a teaser for a reason people, right? So here and now, I vow to share something next week. Hold me to that.
So instead today I thought a bit of writing inspriration would be nice. I ran across a couple of my favorite videos this weekend while exercising that I really wanted to share. Hopefully I can locate them on youtube (searching now)....
And I'm weird like that...I enjoy watching and listening to music while I workout. Something about watching videos just moves me sometimes and I find that I run to some pretty slow songs but it's usually the emotion behind them that moves me. As I watched a few of my favorite videos I realized that those simple videos I love are exactly what I hope to do with my writing. To move people, to make people feel something from the words. That's the ultimate goal.
These artists, in my opinion, do that with their voices and I envy them.
First up is Adam Lambert from an American Idol performance last year:
Okay, I have the original version on my IPOD and this isn't the best but hopefully you get the idea. I can't take my eyes off of him when he sings this song...he's just there with the microphone, singing beautifully, and I can't help but be moved...every.single.time.
Here's another video that always captures my attention:
It starts slow, but the lead singer makes me feel his emotions with this video. I have watched it again and again and again.
And lastly, this one is for Eva and myself...not sure I need to explain this one, do I?
Happy writing everyone!
