Music Monday: A theme song for René
(I know it's Tuesday, but my internet was down yesterday.)
I'm one of those authors that needs a theme song while I'm writing. It can be a song for one of the main characters or one that relates to the story as a whole. It's just nice to have a song that can inspire you while you're working and later remind you of your character or your book. Until recently, I didn't have a song for my upcoming book. But that changed when I found the perfect song for René, one of the main characters.
René is a high school baseball coach from Mobile (pronounced Mo-beel), Alabama. He might be on the reserved side around his students, but he's proud of who he is and who he loves. He isn't used to having to hide his feelings. And if he wants to be with Matt, he'll have to.
The first time I heard Christina Perri's "Distance," I knew it was René's song. I'll never be able to listen to it again without thinking about his story. And I love that.
