As I mentioned Monday, today should mark my 100th post, but I deleted some older posts, so now it's only my 88th one. But, we are going to celebrate anyway. First, though, I wanted to take a moment to clarify something. My posts this week are based on things I've read in agent interviews. If I was super organized, I might have saved the links to those interviews, but I was far from organized, so I didn't. I do know of one location where several pieces of my information came from. Shelli at Market My Words interviews agents regularly. If you haven't visited her blog, you should. It's full of useful information. And one more thing, what you choose to post or not to post on your blog is entirely up to you and should also be based on where you are in your writing journey. My advice may or may not pertain to you. Okay, that being said, let's get on with the celebrating! What better way to celebrate than with music? My friend, Karen Amanda Hooper, tagged me on her blog last week. I'm supposed to list seven songs that have been influential in my life. I could not possibly narrow it down to just seven, so I decided to list ones that were influential to me when writing my first book. Keep in mind that it is a contemporary YA and the music I listened to at the time was consistent with that genre and not a reflection of my favorite songs. Although, I do like these songs. 1. I Don't Care by Fall Out Boy 2. I'm Yours by Jason Mraz 3. Let it Rock by Kevin Rudolf 4. Disturbia by Rihanna 5. Try to Leave a Light on when I'm Gone by David Cook 6. Angels on the Moon by Thriving Ivy 7. I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas (Okay, I'm cheating with this one. It came out way after I finished my book, but it now reminds me of a certain scene.) Now, consider yourselves all tagged. Feel free to post your own top seven songs on your own blog. Oh, and have some virtual cake and ice cream. What would a party be without that? I wanted to send a message to Ellie Kings. Ellie, if you are reading this, I just wanted to let you know that your comment feature on your blog isn't working. You might want to check into that. I'll have more on blogging tomorrow. Have a great day!
