No, this will not be a talk about the five senses (six if you’re lucky). It’s a song that I’m addicted too. You know when you find that one song that describes everything you’re feeling at that exact moment? It’s captivates you, holds you and never lets go.
This one’s titled Touch by Natasha Bedingfield. I don’t know what it is about the song but it has me hitting replay every time.
It also had me thinking about my writing and how I feel all the emotions when a certain song hits me. Touch is definitely one that added the missing ingredient while I was writing.
I’m starting a new short story, this one is wedding related and this song just seems perfect. It’s like a story leading up to the love of a lifetime. While writing women’s fiction I do love feel good music, normally a beat that you can dance too. That doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that drives me, it just pushes me through the lighter portions of the story.
I also apply this to my reading. When I’m looking for strength I go for Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love she empowers women to make a change in their life if needed. If I’m looking for a poetic read I go for Jessica Bell’s String Bridge. She’s amazing at weaving her characters through very complicated situations and coming out a winner. These women touch my heart just like Natasha Bedingfield.
