Making me Smile

I’m feeling a bit high right now (no, not the illegal kind) and for the following three reasons:

1. Writing or mostly editing tonight, but hacking that bitch up like my life depends on it and somehow it doesn’t hurt. (Thanks edgyauthor for your little tip. While I’m not erasing entire pages down to one word, I am removing massive paragraphs & dialogue at a time!)

2. This song & these lyrics. It’s got the most beautiful piano (and I sooo love piano based music) and if Bryce was the singer in my story he *might* sing a song like this over the course of his time with Teagan. This is what I’m writing to on repeat right now. :)

Ashes Divide – “Sword”

Note: I’m pretty sure this is just a fan made video and it’s weird, I know. Just listen to it and read the lyrics below instead of watching it.

-Lyrics-

Spreading your love from the tip of a sword
Echoing the reason that poisons your
Thinking you know what’s good for us all
I wish I could reach out…

To silence you

But I’m a waste in your eyes.
You say you don’t need me to save you tonight.
But I need to save you tonight.

I’m standing alone on the brink of a stone
Trying to humanize the enemy inside you
We’re cut from the same cloth but we are
Stained with the poison of pride

We’re sucking the life from the whole of the world
Can’t be confined or condemned to be
Reduced to a place that’s a violent resolve
To the end they will try

And silence you.

Cos we’re a waste in their eyes
The grace they describe
Won’t save you tonight.

Spreading your love from the tip of a sword
Echoing your reason that poisons your
Of all your fear, love, anymore
Let pride come before a fall

I wish you could see and believe in something more
Than the things I’m confined and condemned to be
They will know our needs and we won’t be ignored
So that we may excuse our lives

Don’t let them silence you
Cos you’re a waste in their eyes
There’s a grace inside of you…
I need tonight…

3. The last two books I’ve read have been oh-so-perfect (“Infinity: Chronicles of Nick” and “Hex Hall”) and quite frankly great books make me want to write something fierce. PLUS I got “Linger” today*** and read the first couple of chapters at red lights on the way home from work. m-stiefvater has already thrust me right back into that warm and fuzzy place she left me at the end of “Shiver” so it seems like my awesome book reading stint will only continue to keep me motivated writing wise. (BTW – Green text in “Linger” equals total awesomeness. Green is my favorite color!)

Peace – Sarah

***I actually visited a bookstore today (which I never do) to buy “Linger” because it turns out that Amazon had no intentions of sending it out this week despite the changed release date and I refused to wait. (Although I was angry to find out when I got home that they did actually release it today after telling me they weren’t and I paid 10 bucks more than I would have online – GRRR!) As if the four books I purchased this weekend online weren’t enough for the month, I walked out with more than just “Linger.”

Me, surrounded by all of those glorious covers, all of them asking me to touch them, was a bad idea. What made it even worse is that I went alone and so there was no one to reign me in when my eyes popped out of my head in wonder.

Luckily because the books are almost double the price in store as they are online I only bought one other book aside from “Linger” and that was “Hex Hall.” I know I said it could wait, especially since I already finished the library copy, but it was so good I just had to own it.

I’m a bad, bad girl. I know. 😛
