Guess who likes Taylor Swift’s new break up song? My 3 year old niece Ellie! 🙂 She is so cute…
I know what we’re going to do next time she’s over… 😉
(Video made by my brother)
My 3 year old daughter LOVES this song… so much that she calls it “her song”. She sang a better take before this one, and turned up the excitement when I brought out the camera. Oh, and “Minnie” is her toy Minnie that’s “listening to her sing” from my lap. 🙂 Oh these precious family times!

Yeah, I listen to allot of music. Funny thing is, when I get into the zone, I don’t hear it at all. I’ll usually miss most of what I’m listening to and have to start it all over again. 🙂

Yes, I’m one of those crazily obsessed writers that has music and special songs to go with every story and character. 😛
Why and how do I have songs for characters and stories? Well, 1) it usually just happens. I’ll be listening to the radio or my ipod and suddenly a song comes on that is a perfect description of a certain character or story. 2) Music is a different way of communicating, and usually involves more emotion. Songs help me better understand my characters on a more personal level. It’s like getting a peak into their hearts through something that I didn’t write. It’s really quite cool. 🙂
So, anywho, now that I’ve explained that, here are the songs that go with Choices and its characters.
Kate and Terren’s Song:
Song for Choices: (I thought it was interesing the song mentions a girl named Emily. Emily was Kate’s original name.)
