No I'm not going to discuss a certain famous speech. Instead I am going to indulge my Mama Mia soundtrack fettish and tell you how ABBA inspires me. When I feel frustrated with my writing (or lack of writing) I love to listen to this song, "I have a dream". It talks about having a dream to cope with reality. If you embrace the fairy tale you can be uplifted even if you fail. Ok, so this is my paraphrasing. Here's a link to the song. Let me know how it touches you.
This next song is one that has gained new meaning for me. Last year when Jenni and I were querying agents she sent me a link to this song saying that it was dedicated to all the agents that sent her rejection letters. Now I can't write a query letter, or read a rejection without thinking of this song!! So let's dedicate it to all the agents out there!!
