So to plug my local RWA contest, I started thinking about Magic Moments in literature and movies. For the contest people submit their first ten pages or the ten pages in which the hero meets the heroine in their story. This got me thinking about all those little Magic Moments that we look for when we read a story or watch a movie.
After seeing I AM NUMBER FOUR on Saturday, I started thinking about the music that goes along with each of these Magic Moments, so I decided to look through my HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN play list and think how each of my songs would go with these Magic Moments. I'm not going to say what happens which each scene, but I will say what lyrics do inspire it.
1.) Magic Moment- Hero meets Heroine: Song- All My Life by Foo Fighters.
All my life I've been searching for something
2.) Magic Moment- The "almost" kiss: Song- Only by Nine Inch Nails
I'm becoming less defined as days go by
3.)Magic Moment- The first kiss: Song- If I had you by Adam Lambert
There's a thin side between the dark side and the light
4.)Magic Moment- The dark moment/the climax (note: I had to pick the EXACT turning point of the novel and this is the part that always made me gasp when I read it). Song- Apocalypse Please by Muse
And this is the end, the end of the world
5.)Magic Moment- The heroic moment: Song- Grenade by Bruno Mars
I'd still catch a grenade for you
6.)Magic Moment- The happy(or not so happy) ending: Song- Drive by Incubus
Whatever tomorrow bring I'll be there
What are your favorite magic moments? Do you have a play list? Are you still mulling over what my big teasing secret is? (I'll give you a hint...it involves this manuscript).
